English and Literature Teacher with twenty years of teaching and tutoring experience

Methodology

I love teaching and tutoring because I get to work one on one with students to meet their individual needs. Each student is unique, and nothing makes me happier than helping my students achieve their goals. I want to be a valuable resource in the lives of those I can help, using my experience as a student and as a teacher. Furthermore, I want to be an aid in whatever they want to achieve. Nothing makes me feel prouder than seeing my students succeed. They teach me as much as I teach them. We learn together!

Background

Hello students! My education includes a Bachelor's in English and a Master's in English Education, both obtained from Piedmont College. I have taught both locally, abroad, and online. In addition, I also have extensive experience in human resources, writing, reading, editing, and communications.
