"Teaching is my passion. I just started my tenth year of teaching in the Howard County Public School System. This year I teach 8th grade English and GT English, and I have also taught 6th grade English, 7th grade English, 9th grade GT English, 10th grade English, a 10th grade ESOL/English class, and an 11th/12th grade creative writing elective. During my first year of teaching, I was nominated for the First Year Educator Award. I am very dedicated to my career and would love to increase the number of students I teach and help to succeed through tutoring.

I specialize in all aspects of English, and I am also certified to teach ESOL, middle school math, and German. Although tutoring sessions would focus on English, I would be more than happy to help with other subjects. My goal as a teacher and a tutor is to set high yet attainable expectations and challenge my students while providing support. I design my tutoring sessions around whatever best fits my students' needs; I am happy to help students review and/or practice skills taught in class, work on homework and/or papers and projects, and/or essentially teach an additional class that covers new but important skills with assigned homework. I am truly willing to work with you to meet your individual needs!

Before starting our tutoring sessions, I offer a free consultation meeting to discuss students' needs and develop a format for our sessions that works best. Periodically I would like to reflect on the effectiveness of the tutoring sessions and, if necessary, redesign the format.

Time is valuable to all of us, and I try to be as flexible as possible. I have a 1-hour cancellation policy, and I offer makeup tutoring sessions. The most convenient in-person location for tutoring sessions for me is the Elkridge Branch Library, but I am willing to travel to another nearby location if that is more convenient for you. I am also happy to tutor virtually through Google Meet.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies." less...
