I've been an educator and tutor for many years. I love working with students of all ages and teaching many different subjects. I previously taught high school English, but I currently work as a freelance graphic designer.

In the past I've tutored and taught English and reading, study skills, Public Speaking, Theater, Journalism, and elementary math. I've helped college students write term papers and graduate students complete dissertations.

I majored in English Literature and have a great love of reading and writing in my spare time. I know how to break writing down and make essays manageable. I know building confidence is essential to success! I have experience teaching novels, short stories, poetry, vocabulary, and SAT prep in the classroom.

I know how difficult beginning the tutoring process can be. I will gladly answer any questions you have and make sure we are a good fit!

I taught Public Speaking as an elective at Highland High School for two years. Highland required I take the Theater Praxis in order to qualify as the Public Speaking teacher, so I took the Theater Praxis test and received a passing test score. I have experience with Theater and Public Speaking including writing speeches, elocution, and extemporaneous style speaking.
