I love teaching one-to-one and specialize in demystifying grammar and the writing process and especially enjoy revealing the power of the written word.
My love for teaching has brought me to the College of Charleston where I teach Introduction to Academic Writing, Honors English, and Introduction to Poetry. I have over 15 years’ experience teaching, and tutoring, intermediate and remedial English as well as reading, writing (academic and creative), language arts, literature, and academic studies to students of all backgrounds and levels. In addition, I am an experienced ESL and College Prep. instructor.
Each lesson will focus on developing student strengths and competencies then applying them to the learning challenge at hand in such a way that he or she can proceed with confidence and the least amount of stress. Whether writing a paper, preparing for a test, or gaining understanding of a text, students will come away feeling motivated and prepared.
Students who work with me tell me they love my teaching methods and approach. I receive consistently high evaluations and positive feedback from students who say they find me approachable, encouraging, and organized. Students also recognize how my high expectations of their work directly contribute to their success.
Learning can be fun and personally rewarding. Contact me to learn how! I love teaching one-to-one and specialize in demystifying grammar and the writing process and especially enjoy revealing the power of the written word.

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.
