About Jo

I am a determined 'go-getter' who is a life-long learner. I have an AA in Secondary Education (Summa Cum Laude), a BA in Pre-Professional English Studies with a History minor (Magna Cum Laude), and a Master of Liberal Arts with a European History specialization. I have been a substitute teacher in local school districts for 3 years. I, too, have 5+ years of volunteering and working in both educational and public library settings.

I use techniques, which have been taught to me in my undergraduate English classes, to mentor others in successful writing and research skills. I purposefully make my tutoring experiences as non-stressful as possible since the classroom experience can be, in and of itself, intimidating.

I enjoy feedback and I appreciate each comment, which helps me become a better educator.

I have a flexible schedule. I have a 4-hour cancellation policy and offer make-up lessons.

I will gladly meet my students in a mutually conducive environment such as a library's study room. I will travel to another location if it is more convenient for my students.

I have a love of English Literature, vocabulary, grammar, and reading. A well-versed writer is an asset in any situation because they have the capability of critical thought and analysis to understand and perceive circumstances.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve your academic goals.
