UNC-Chapel Hill (English)
University of Michigan-Ann Arbor (Master's)
A lifelong love of literature led me to specialize in English as an undergraduate at UNC-Chapel Hill and in graduate school at the University of Michigan. My area of specialization was Shakespeare and English Renaissance Drama.
As a graduate student at U-M, I served as a grader for one year and taught independent sections of Composition and Literature for five years. I thoroughly understand college standards for writing and am well able to teach them.
I also look to inspire students with my own love of literature. As a teacher, this led me to develop a special section of Composition taught completely through pop music lyrics and lyric poetry. For Intro to Literature, I developed a class on Science Fiction that included "texts" from TV and film, as well as novels.
I have also volunteered as an ESL literacy tutor for adults, and a tutor for disadvantaged grade-school students through the Urban League.
I hope you will contact me if you are looking to build your skills in comprehension, vocabulary, critical thinking, or composition.

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.
I spent six years in fundraising as a Campaign Manager and Executive Director. Over that period, I gave hundreds of presentations to potential donors, special-event attendees, and Board members. I am both comfortable and experienced as a public speaker.
