I specialize in lessons tailored to the student's needs. Having trouble with a particular text and need some help figuring out the theme? I can do that. Need to nail your essay? I've got you covered. Want to improve your vocabulary? Let's talk about it. Basically, I work with my students to determine where they need assistance then we come up with a plan to help them reach their goals.
I hold a B.A in Creative Writing and English and an M.S. in Secondary Education. I have years of classroom experience working with students from diverse backgrounds teaching everything from Language Arts to English as a Foreign Language.
