With more than 10 years of tutoring experience at the high school and college levels, I currently serve as a full-time English and Composition tutor/instructor in a college setting.

I specialize in thesis statements, structure and organization, and citations/references. I also specialize in vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and writing mechanics. I earned my BS degree in English from a small, private Liberal Arts college and my MA in Communication from a public university. While I have always excelled at writing and English, I have discovered my passion for working with students of all ages and I can help you reach your highest potential in writing and composition.

One of the things I LOVE about tutoring is the opportunity to get to know students and build a rapport over time with each student. I find that students benefit most from long-term tutoring relationships to build on skills session after session.

I believe that my job is NOT to give you the "right" answers, but encourage you to think critically and effectively articulate your own ideas in the best way possible. As your tutor, I will ask you a lot of questions about your interests, your writing topic, and your own ideas for your work. These conversations help me get to know you and help you think critically to articulate your ideas clearly and effectively. Though I do work with students of all ages, my primary experience is with high school, college, and adult/continuing education students.

When I'm not working with students, I enjoy photography, bicycling, golf, and of course, writing.
