I have a true passion for English and teaching. When I was first learning to read it didn't come easy, but there's nothing more freeing than being able to disappear into another world through reading or to compose a new world through writing.

I have a true passion for English and teaching. When I started college, people immediately realized I had a love for English, and ever since I have other college students consistently sending me papers for proofreading or requesting to meet at the library for help mapping out a paper.

In high school I completed a college level music theory course and in college I continued to take music based courses. Additionally I have composed a wide variety of pieces in my free time, many of which have been featured in performances and submitted with college projects and in course portfolios.
I was raised in an education system which emphasized handwriting and cursive. Additionally, my grandmother instructed me in calligraphy. I also have experience working with elementary students in a practicum classroom setting.
