I am an experienced teacher with 13 years of teaching high school English, reading, drama, art history, and speech communication. I also have five years of teaching middle school and high school reading to students who struggle with comprehension and fluency. I currently teach remedial reading and career development and run the Speech Center at Southern Illinois University near St. Louis. I have a bachelor's degree in communications and two master's degrees: one in curriculum and instruction, the other as a
K-12 reading specialist. Not only can I help you with a variety of English skills, but also with note-taking, proofreading, grammar, vocabulary, test prep, study skills, and English pronunciation as well.

I value teaching that fits individual students' needs and learning styles. I believe that all students who want to learn can. Many students struggle with reading comprehension, test anxiety, spelling, writing, and vocabulary, no matter what their age. I work closely with students to uncover their academic needs, then work with them to discover what strengths they can use to overcome their struggles. I can also apply standardized testing to help identify reading levels and deficiencies.
