"Karibu (welcome, in Swahili)! I'm a native Nebraskan, with a global perspective of over ten years in international education. I currently teach at a high performing international school in Prague, Czech Republic. I most recently taught college writing/composition at University of Nebraska-Kearney. My experience includes teaching in Madagascar, Indonesia, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, South Africa, the Czech Republic and Seattle. I graduated from Northwestern College, cum laude, with a B.A. in English Education and from UNK with a Masters of English with specialization in Composition/Rhetoric. I hold a current Masters teaching certification from the state of Iowa.

My classroom experience includes teaching English grades 8-12, leading ACT/SAT prep courses, coaching students through the college essay writing process, and instruction in AP Lit and Comp. and AP Language and Comp. I am also experienced with IB English curriculum and assessments included the Personal Project and the DP English Literature Extended Essay. I've also created curriculum to master the TOK essay. My students have gone on to Princeton, MITT, and Yale.

Learning should be fun and interesting, even if the topic isn't a student's favorite. When teaching, I introduce lessons in a fun and creative way, then teach the material to be both accessible and actionable. I believe learning should be practical, so I do my best to structure lessons to be transferable to other subjects. My teaching style is to challenge students while coming alongside them to grow in an encouraging way. I try to bring the combination of appropriate challenge and encouragement into my tutoring. I love empowering the students I teach to become better writers.

I am easiest to reach online and welcome feedback from students and parents. Feel free to contact me with any questions or schedule a lesson! I'm excited to help you succeed in your writing and look forward to connecting with you." less...
