Having completed a BA in English from St. Bonaventure University in 2001 and an MA from the same school in 2003, I had very successful positions as a Writing Instructor at St. Bonaventure University, Alfred University, Elmira College, and New Mexico Highlands University. In addition to those experiences, I have substitute taught English and American history classes in middle and high schools in the Horseheads Central School District, the Elmira Heights Central School District, and the Elmira City School District. I also felt very excited to be a tutor in the Horseheads Central School District's "homebound" tutoring program, and I have enjoyed tutoring many of my freshman composition students during office hours as I discussed their papers and the class readings with them.

As a tutor, I want our sessions to be beneficial to you and cater to your learning style. This means I will listen to what you would like to gain from our meeting and hope to have a one-on-one, give-and-take, collaborative conversation about your work.

I can provide sessions in more of a lecture format if you feel you like to learn better in that style. I am also willing to take the time to provide you with helpful handouts and worksheets. I like to be as creative as I can, especially with helping out your writing skills, in finding fun writing prompts based on your personal interests. I always make strong efforts to relate English literature and writing course content to your life or to current events. I also understand that writing, even an academic essay, is personal; thus, I start by looking at and stressing" less...
