I teach 12th Grade English and co-teach Concurrent Speech at Oklahoma Christian School in Edmond, Oklahoma, and I love it! I also taught ESL in Japan, and Speech Communications at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. I have tutored students of all ages in lots of subjects too.
Great teaching is all about student engagement. I do my best to teach and tutor l in a way that interests students, and helps them understand why things work the way they do. Great lessons begin with big questions, and big questions lead to deeper understandings. Once students understand underlying principals they are better equipped to change the world!
Besides being a full time English teacher, I have also taught public speaking at the college level. I am certified to teach English, Drama, and Speech in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
I've been playing the guitar since I was 13 years old. It's a great instrument, and I love getting people started on it!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.
I received a level 5 certificate of music theory and practice from the Royal Academy of Music while living in England. I have played guitar for many years, and have tutored several people in introductory guitar playing. I am ready and able to teach guitar tablature, scales, and chords.
I minored in Speech and Drama while getting my bachelors degree at Harding University. After graduating, I taught Speech Communications as an adjunct for three years. I have a standard teaching license to teach speech to students in grades 7-12 in both Oklahoma and Arkansas. This year I will be co-teaching a concurrent speech class alongside a Professor from Oklahoma Christian University in Edmond, Oklahoma.
