I will come up with an innovative and personalized plan so you or your student will reach your academic goals. I have five years teaching experience and enjoy the creativity of coming up with engaging and effective lesson plans.

I have experience teaching at the middle school, high school, and college levels. I have also published an academic book, so I am no stranger to the research and academic writing process and can tutor capstone, thesis, and dissertation projects.

I also have an extensive acting and improvisation background, so I aim to make every lesson as engaging for you as possible. Perhaps most importantly, I truly love teaching and seeing students improve their reading and writing skills.

Please feel free to contact me for more information.

I have taught ninth grade ELA for three years and focused intently on preparing students for the Common Core English Regents.
