FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I understand that time is valuable, so my first priorities are to diagnose my student's needs, to develop an understanding of my student's expectations (e.g. deadlines, what students hope to achieve, etc.), and to set goals, all while developing a friendly rapport.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I received my Bachelor's Degree from Indiana University in Secondary Education, with a major (36 hours) in English. 

I received my Master's Degree from Michigan State University in Education, with an emphasis on academic advising for student-athletes and Sport Administration.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

According to Tutors.com, a private tutor will generally cost between $25 and $80 per hour. Depending on the services needed, you can expect the following from me:

- Minimum $30 per hour

- Maximum $60 per hour

Let's talk it over and see what works. Money isn't everything - I'm here to help.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching at the high school level: my first year I taught 9th, 10th, and 12th grade Language Arts classes; my second year, I taught 5 sections of 9th grade Language Arts classes.

After that, I began teaching ESL as an adjunct instructor at Michigan State University, and, following the completion of my Master's Degree, continued teaching ESL at Albion College.


What types of students have you worked with?

Native English Speakers - Grades 9-12

English Langague Learners - College/University

Adult Learners - University

Student-Athletes - University


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Know what you need, and clearly express that need. I'm a big believer in meeting students where they are in their learning and taking steps forward from there. At the same time, I can help you to identify and achieve goals that are important for you.
