I am a recent St. Thomas gradate and a Houston native. My degree is in History and Russian Studies. Throughout my education, I have been quick to begin and lead study groups, no matter the subject. My teaching and study style is engaging, comprehensive, and logical, and I make sure that the topic is understood before moving on. I have recently begun teaching ESOL and hope that this will become my main focus. I am friendly, punctual and easy-going. I hope that I will be able to help you learn!

For ESOL and knitting, I will take 20% off for the second student, and 30% for the third. Having a group to study with is invaluable!
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.
While difficult, English is one of the most versatile and rewarding languages. I am a native speaker, and as an avid reader, creative writer and student of the Liberal Arts, I can help any student learn to appreciate both its capricious and austere sides.
Whether you need help as a native speaker regarding literature or as a learner, new to the language, I can help you advance your command of the English language.
I have been knitting since 2006 and would love to share my knowledge! Knitting is a fun, relaxing, skill-hobby, and can build confidence. For beginners, I can teach you the basic stitches, how to read a pattern and show for supplies, and guide you through your first three projects. For those who have mastered the basics, I can help you learn how to move on to lace and color work. I'm also willing to teach groups of friends, students, or families.
I love to read, and I want everyone else to as well! I am patient, easy-going, and have great mnemonic devices for remembering pronunciation and word meanings.
My degree in History was reading- and writing-intensive, and I can both help students find meaning in high-level literature and texts as well as assist those who are still learning master the basics.
An increase in your vocabulary is an increase in your expression. When I was younger, I diligently read the dictionary (For fun! Seriously.) because on every page were new words that I could learn and work into my speech. I can help you garner the same enthusiasm and ability in linguistic creativity.
As a History major, I wrote several term papers per semester over the course of my education. I have developed a great method for research, outlining, documentation and everything else a great term paper needs. On the other hand, if you're looking for creative expression, I have been writing a novel a year for five years thanks to National Novel Writing Month. I'll show you how to plot your story, develop characters and keep up stamina!
