"I love the English language--words are magical. Initially, I set out to have a career in publishing because of this love. While that did not transfer well to my relocation from New York City to Buffalo, move passion for language did not disappear. I was fortunate enough to 'fall into' teaching, thinking it would be an interesting challenge. What I discovered was that teaching is what I love to do.

I've been teaching for over ten years. Currently, I teach at a community college, but I've also taught at other two-year colleges. Additionally, I'm certified to teach English at the middle school and high school level. Over the years, I've done private tutoring with students ranging from 12 to 60 years old. I am incredibly passionate about what I teach, everything from proper grammar to analyzing literature. My students can see this and frequently begin to see a subject that they dreaded transform into something that they, too, love.

In addition to having degrees in English (undergraduate and graduate) and Education (graduate), I spent almost a decade working as an editor. This allows me to have hands on experience with editing and proofreading, which is driven by strong grammar, spelling, and vocabulary skills. I've taught composition for over ten years to a wide array of students in different learning environments. I have also taught literature at the college level for over ten years. This includes understanding, analyzing, and writing about literature in a variety of formats--novels, short stories, poetry, and plays.

I have made a career out of teaching classes that the majority of students take simply because they have to. Because of this, I am driven to bring my passion for English to the table. My students continually tell me that the see things a new way because of my classes; and, that I bring an often seen as dull subject to life. If you or your child are having trouble with English, please contact me to discuss opportunities." less...
