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 language arts teacher with eight years of successful classroom experience. I have been an honors and advanced placement English teacher at Weaver Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, which was listed among Newsweek's top 100 high schools in the nation.
My priority as an educator is to develop a diverse population of students into self-disciplined and innovative critical thinkers. I have had the opportunity to teach all high school grade levels and currently teach 8th grade language arts in Hillsborough.
I have enjoyed helping my students achieve success on a variety of assessments, including the English I End-of-Course Exam, the North Carolina State Writing Test, the Advanced Placement English Language and Composition Exam, the Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition Exam, 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, self-reliance, and self-esteem in each student. I tailor to individual learning needs and learning styles by incorporating multiple strategies. I use every creative opportunity and resource possible to spark in my students not only an understanding of the language arts, but a lifelong curiosity and passion for writing and reading.
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.

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.
