I graduated with Summa cum laude honors from Oklahoma city Community college. From there I went on to The University of Science and Arts where I graduated with the same high honors. I have taught English and Remedial Reading for grades 6-8. I have tutored students before and after school for years. I have made a positive impact In their lives. In fact, I am still in touch with many of my past students on social media. My favorite aspect of tutoring is that I get to know the students on a one to one basis. This personal connection is sometimes all a student requires to be successful, and my goal is for my students to succeed regardless of the challenge.

I teach language because I understand how essential good communication is. Being able to read, to write, and to incorporate these skills with todays technology is vital. For this reason, my lessons usually involve some type of technology. I have students prepare Power Point presentations. I use video, Newsela, Quizlet, and Word. I am not a drill master, I am a teacher. I believe learning is hard work, but I am positive it can be fun. With a positive outlook all things are possible.

Throughout your life you will be judged by your command of language. This is why I teach reading, writing, English, Literature, and Public Speaking. It is essential when dealing with all of these subjects to master the mechanics of English as everything flows from this base. For example, if you don't know how to write a sentence, and if you don't have an extensive vocabulary, you wont be able to create a speech or be an effective speaker. My favorite subject is Literature. I like to see what new authors are writing and I adore the classics. I also enjoy teaching writing, as it gives me a glimpse into the soul of my students. When teaching Public Speaking I enjoy seeing personal growth in confidence. The subject I excel in is Remedial Reading. I have been able to bring a students reading level from 2nd grade to 8th grade within the period of one year. This is the most gratifying life gift I can give.
