"Hello! I'm a recent graduate of the University of Michigan's Master of Arts in Educational Studies with Secondary Teacher Certification program, and am certified to teach English to 6th-12th graders. I completed my student teaching at a Middle School in Ann Arbor, where I worked with 7th and 8th grade ELA students. Prior to this, I worked as a K-12 substitute in various schools throughout Metro Detroit and as an editor for Master's and Doctoral students through a private company. With a variety of different experiences with reading, writing, and teaching under my belt, I’m excited to help your student hone their analytical thinking, bulk up their argumentative skills, and become more confident as writers and readers.

I deeply understand the importance of making learning one’s own -- as a self-directed learner with a diverse and growing collection of academic interests, the personalized approach to education that tutoring allows is exciting to me. Rather than working within the confines of established curriculum, tutoring allows for instruction tailored to student needs and interests. I want to know what my students find compelling, challenging, and important. I want to work with students to help them turn into more engaged scholars, more curious readers, and more self-assured communicators. I entered education to have the opportunity to learn from my students; by building a responsive, empathetic rapport based in mutual respect and openness, I can help your student build new strategies to strengthen their writing." less...
