Although I ultimately aim to teach at the university level, I have always found joy in teaching younger students, and look forward to the opportunity to expand and enrich their learning experiences. I am available for any English-related tutoring at any level. For high-school and beyond, I will be happy to support your student with summer reading comprehension, essay-editing, or preparing/refining college study skills. For younger students, I offer help with spelling and vocabulary, grammar basics, and developing writing skills.
HobbiesAlthough I primarily focus upon research and academic writing in school, I also enjoy reading and writing poetry. When I'm not at work (Carrabba's Italian Grill), I also love singing and playing guitar, traveling, hiking, painting.
