University of Tennessee (Journalism)
I grew up in a household surrounded by books. My love affair with reading began at a very young age, and continues to this day. As a child I wanted to grow up to be an author, a dream I am still pursuing, but in the meantime I split my time between teaching journalism and doing freelance copy writing/proof reading work.
I received my degree in journalism, with a minor in English and speech communication. I have more than 10 years of experience as an award winning journalist. Currently I am teaching a college-level journalism course and advising the student paper. The best thing about my job is getting to interact with students. I love being able to share my expertise and skills with them and help them pursue their goals with writing/English.
I have an eye for detail, great comprehension skills, I work well under pressure, and have an awesome personality. I am easy to work with and have a ton of experience turning my English minor into real world success. While I love English and literature, I know not everyone does. I am very good at breaking lessons down into easy to understand formats and key elements.
I would be happy to help future students learn how to survive high school English without hating reading for the rest of their lives. I want to show you that English can be fun, and there is a lot more to it than what you learn in school. Please contact me for more information. I grew up in a household surrounded by books.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
