I have an MBA from University of Phoenix and a degree in Journalism from Kent State University. I am a journalist with more than 20 years of experience and an educator who works to empower youth by building confidence to help them succeed. I have worked as a substitute teacher in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District for about two years. I typically accept assignments as a media specialist, a reading intervention specialist or as an English teacher. I worked in a long-term assignment as an English instructor at Ginn Academy in Cleveland, Ohio, and empowered more than 60 young men in the 9th and 10th grades. Writing and reading skills improved during my tenure. Additionally, I have assisted college students with research papers and writing assignments. I am also an author of two books about relationship issues; I have also proofread manuscripts for other authors.

I am a self-proclaimed grammar snob. I love good grammar. I cringe at misspelled words. As I often tell my students, I like good stuff. I love developing solid skills -- reading, writing, public speaking -- that will help my students be successful in life. While I have a straight-forward style, I am compassionate and understanding. I will push you, but I will celebrate you, too!

As a teacher and writer, I am compassionate and understanding about helping students become successful. Confidence plays an integral role in the amount of success that a student can achieve. If you want a tutor who will improve your skills and build your confidence, contact me.
