Personal English Tutor
I am an individual English, Literature, and Non-Fiction Writing tutor. I am an editor for published authors, college students, and a Language Arts and Grammar tutor for 3rd through 12th-grade students.
I have a passion for teaching people the art of language and writing. Interpreting literature is something I have always enjoyed and I love to share that passion with others.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Each student learns differently and requires different needs. Whether the student needs help with a specific project or overall improvement, I go through a short questionnaire to assess their needs as well as ask to review a recent piece of the work they wish to improve on. This ensures that all of the student's requirements are given the proper amount of attention.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have worked with students for over 7 years, I have edited books for two published authors, and I am currently receiving Montessori training as an assistant teacher.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Watching a child I mentored earn her Girl Scout Gold Award.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Tutors should be kind, patient, and understanding of the student's needs. Usually, tutors are called upon when the student's actual teacher cannot afford the time, does not teach in a method helpful to the student, refuses to help, or gives up on the student. Find a tutor that you are confident can adapt to your needs, and who takes the time to help without frustration.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
I pride myself on never just giving a student the answer, but guiding the child through their own knowledge to an answer they find themselves. This allows the child to come to a conclusion on their own, cementing the concept in their mind because they learned it themselves.
All questions should be asked, but the answers should not all be given.
