Bio

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours," (Henry David Thoreau). The passion I possess from reading and writing began when I read "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder while I was in the second grade.

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours," (Henry David Thoreau). The passion I possess from reading and writing began when I read "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder while I was in the second grade. I enjoyed the class weekly visit to the school library and I ensured I chose a different book written by Laura Ingalls Wilder during her childhood. While reading Laura Ingalls Wilder's book my imagination took my mind to her era. The more I read her books, I developed a desire to write short stories.

I began tutoring other students while I was in high school and I have continued until present. My desire for each student I come in contact with is to assist in becoming in touch with their creative side. Becoming a great writer is developed through a love to read and the ability to allow an individual to be creative. I specialize in all aspects of English from Literature, Vocabulary, and Reading. I enjoy working with all age groups from elementary to an adult who has decided to return back to college.

I am currently an online student at The University of Memphis majoring in English and minoring in Literature. I have completed all of my course work for my English major and Literature minor. I pride myself on the success of my students so feedback from the parents of my students are welcomed. I prefer to work with my students at a nearby library until a trusting relationship is created between the student and myself. Once developed I am opened to tutoring either at my home or the student's home.

I request if the student has to cancel, a 24 hour notice is given so I may plan accordingly. I am able to tutor on weekends and evenings.

I look forward to working together.
