I have a lifelong passion for learning, and I love to pass on what I have learned and help others attain the success that I enjoy through academic achievement. I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Oregon who has achieved success as a tutor at the university level. I worked as a tutor for the University of Oregon to help pay my way through college, and I was so successful, I was allowed to teach a remedial writing course while still an undergraduate. In addition, I worked as a teaching assistant for college composition courses and assisted professors with reading and grading papers.

After graduating from UO, I returned several years later and was hired by the university to coordinate and manage the tutorial program for UO Athletics. While in this position, I continued to hold individual and group tutorial sessions for student-athletes. Students who worked with me became more successful in all of their courses because I worked with them to improve their general study skills and strategies in addition to course-specific study.

Words are powerful, and the proper use of them is essential to a successful life. I am a successful English tutor because I am a master of words. As a writer, tutor, and a lifelong reader and student of literature, I have the ability to look at the words, behind the words, and beyond the words to see the subtleties of language often overlooked by a superficial reading. I am also an expert in grammar and punctuation, which are integral components of communication.

I am an expert in argumentative writing, composition and literary, and I excel at reading and writing about all literary genres. I am a Shakespeare fanatic, and I have studied many of his plays. I am proud to boast that many of my former students, who came to me thinking the literature they were assigned to read was a foreign language, left our sessions excited about literature and able to understand, analyze, and write about it successfully.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success!

I studied the Bible as literature in college, and I completed the Episcopal Church's Education for Ministry course, which includes studying the Bible.
