"Hello! I am a high school English teacher with a B.A. in English Education and two years of classroom experience. I have been tutoring and working with students since 2016. I studied at Illinois State University, and did my student teaching at Dwight Township High School. I then taught for two years at LaSalle Township High School. I worked as an after school tutor during this time as well. I absolutely love working with students, but am taking a short break from teaching to stay home with my own kids. Tutoring allows me to do what I love at the same time, and continue my passion of sharing language and communication life skills with students. I have grown up in this area, and enjoy riding horses and playing flute in my spare time.

I have an extensive background in writing and literature both throughout my college experience and teaching career. I have taught students from 9th through 12th grade in the classroom, and tutored students from 6th grade to the college post-graduate level. Classes I have taught include speech, Shakespeare, creative writing, SAT prep for the reading and writing sections, and American Literature. I have assisted with teaching Advanced Placement classes. My tutoring experience is based in writing and grammar. I also have experience working on reading comprehension and preparing students for the SAT. My students have come from diverse backgrounds, from having Spanish as a first language and more. I have worked with English Language Learners at many different levels and in many age groups to build their language proficiency, as a tutor and as a conversation partner for exchange students in college. I have enjoyed working with and learning from a wide variety of students on speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. I also work with my students on organization and study skills if needed. I am the author or the adventure novel No Matter What and a contributor to the anthology Illinois' Best Emerging Poets.
