Experience

I've always had a love for learning, starting in primary school. After high school, I went on to the University of Wisconsin - Madison to obtain my Bachelor of Arts in English and French. From there, I went on to Arizona State University to finish my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, emphasis on Poetry. Since obtaining my master's degree, I have been teaching French and English classes. Most of the past decade, I have been a professor of writing and English. I also have experience teaching composition at the college level, literature, film, and many more subjects. Additionally, I have taught numerous summer school courses on SAT and ACT test prep. That is not where my experience ends, I have also instructed courses on writing for the essay part of the standardized test, grammar, and reading sections. All of the experiences above and more is where my love of teaching stems from. I love learning, therefore, I love teaching students what I know. As a tutor, my goal is to make my lessons fun and challenging. I also firmly believe that teaching your pupils to be confident is just as important as teaching them the subject matter. I am looking forward to helping you or your student achieve academic success!
