I would be excited to be part of helping challenge, nurture and prepare your child for the greatest possible academic success. I am a certified English Language Arts teacher with more than 13 years of successful classroom experience. I have taught almost all levels of English, from Creative Writing, Honors and Advanced Placement courses to developmental English. I started teaching at Weaver Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, which was listed among Newsweek's top 100 high schools in the nation. I also have taught an evening course at Rockingham Community College. I am currently in my sixth year teaching in Orange County Schools, having taught three years at a Middle School and in my third year at a High School.
I can help students achieve success on a variety of assessments, including state-administered End-of-Course exams, Writing Tests, the Advanced Placement English Language and Composition Exam, the Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition Exam, the Praxis, the ACT, and the SAT.
I have taught students from a variety of backgrounds and know how to approach different learning styles, break down the material, and communicate with patience, clarity, innovation, and enthusiasm so a student can learn. I promote a love for learning, responsibility, and self-esteem in each student. I tailor to individual learning needs and learning styles by incorporating multiple strategies.
I know and love my subject and am dedicated to student learning. I understand that each individual has unique needs, and by quickly and accurately assessing a student's strengths and areas of growth, I adjust as needed to maintain interest and motivation. The result is a student who demonstrates mastery of the content and enjoys the process. Few things are more rewarding than seeing an individual feel empowered through written expression and reading comprehension.

I received an Educational Testing Service Award for Outstanding Achievement on Praxis II for English. I am a certified English teacher and have more than 11 years experience teaching all grade levels, including Advanced Placement Language and Advanced Placement Literature.
