I am a certified teacher with 14 years of experience in grades 7-12. My certification in AP Literature and Composition also 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 professional, personable, and flexible. As an introspective educator, it important to adapt my teaching strategies to each student's needs. I am very conscientious of student learning styles and academic success.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with you. When contacting me for assistance, please provide me with specific information on your needs, due dates, etc. The more information that you are able to provide me, the easier it is for me to create appropriate lessons and assignments.

Film

I am a 15-year secondary ELA teacher with a strong film as literature emphasis within my classroom. I also have a strong background in the study of film as both as hobby as a potential career choice. My strengths are with film history and directors. I have an eclectic knowledge and taste in film, so it doesn't hurt to ask if I may know what movie you are talking about. I look forward to helping you.
