Methodology

I approach teaching through the lens of critical thinking and personal expression. I ensure students build a solid foundation in the given subject and then challenge them to reach their full potential. By offering flexible lessons, students achieve their academic goals.

Background

I have published my work in literary magazines and specialize in teaching Creative Writing, English Literature, and Literacy to students ranging from elementary to college-age. Additionally, I hold my MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop where I taught Creative Writing to undergraduate students.
