An experienced teacher of 20 years, I've had the pleasure of working with students of all ages and watching them implement the skills I've helped them develop. I've worked in private and public schools, suburban and urban settings, and I currently work at Monroe Community College as a Tutor in the Center for Academic Reading (CAR), a writing laboratory, where students receive academic support to enable them to achieve their goals.
I specialize in general high school and college level English, and I have experience tutoring elementary and middle school aged students, too. In addition to helping with grammar, homework completion, reading comprehension, and essay writing, I also help students prepare for standardized tests like SATs and ACTs and assist with college applications.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.
