"I help people achieve their educational and career goals, which creates more opportunities for them and enables them to make better lives for themselves and their families.

I provide tutoring in English, beginner English (ESL, ESOL, and ESP), writing, grammar, conversation, test prep (SAT, ACT, TOEFL, IELTS, and GED), literature, screenwriting, and drawing. I have successfully worked with students of different backgrounds, cultures, and ages.

I have earned a Ph.D. in English (Morgan State University), a 120-Hour TEFL certification (myTEFL/Footprints Language Education), an Intermediate Spanish Certificate (la Universidad Autónoma Benito Juárez de Oaxaca), an M.A. in African American Studies (University of Iowa), and more than 18 hours in graduate-level history.

I have taught for more than 10 years at the college and high school levels, including English, writing, literature, U.S. history, African American history, world civilization, film studies, and screenwriting.

I also teach drawing classes such as manga/anime styles.

Since 2011, I have also been a professional copy editor, proofreader, and script analyst.

I have been drawing since I was a toddler watching re-runs of the funny Batman TV series and trying to imitate what I saw. BAM! BIFF! KA-POW! As I got older, I drew other comic book characters and Transformers. I took art classes in high school and college.

My tutoring is tailored to fit your unique needs. My strengths include patience, helping you understand and eliminate your mistakes, and breaking complicated tasks down into smaller, simpler parts.

I am a patient and encouraging teacher and tutor. I welcome your input, and I enjoy seeing my students build their confidence, make progress, and meet their goals.
