About Kirk

If you are needing help with English / Language Arts, you have come to the right place. I am a certified teacher with 12 years of experience in grades 7-12, and I have certification in AP Literature and Composition, which allows me the luxury of helping out those at the university level. I am very knowledgeable of literature and composition for the upper level students, while having a knack for spelling, vocabulary, reading, and study skills for the middle school (Junior High) and below.

I am very easy to get along with, but I am very serious about student success. I am constantly revising teaching strategies that may not be working, so you can be assured that you are getting a person who is very conscientious of your student's learning style, and your student's success.
