I'm a lifelong student who loves learning! My passion for education has led me to pursue studies in a wide field of subjects. I have been teaching private lessons, tutoring and teaching workshops/classes in a variety of subjects for nearly a decade. I have taught ages 4-65 in a variety of settings. I'm extremely adaptable.
I have also been performing improv, comedy, theatre as well as writing, storytelling and exploring creative topics my entire life. I have always had a passion for uninhibited creativity that uses a solid foundation in theory and practice. Using a practical approach to right brain activities, I am able to merge creative desires and it's practical applications in an effective and fun space that students love to explore!
Students who take my lessons walk away with not only pragmatic advice and theory but incredible confidence, passion and a desire to explore their creative subjects further.
I graduated from the University of North Florida with a degree in English. I furthered my studies with a graduate degree at Queen's University. After graduating college in 2005, I began working as an independent researcher for several non-profit and government organizations including the Florida Commission on Human Relations. My work with those organizations prepared me for a career in Academic Writing and teaching. I have an interest in a variety of subjects and have written many research papers for organizations and companies. This experience has given me the opportunity to expand my areas of knowledge and interests.
I tutor a variety of subjects including English, Reading, Writing, Test Prep, Study Skills and Acting/Theatre. I believe encouragement and support is of upmost importance. I teach with compassion and understanding, first and foremost. My lessons are customized to each individual's needs and I offer progress reports, constructive criticism and homework assignments as needed. Most importantly, I want to make sure that each lesson sees the student walking away feeling empowered, encouraged, confident and successful.
As I approach tutoring with honesty and respect, I expect my students to be held to the same standard. In this way, I encourage feedback.
I look forward to speaking with you about your goals and how I can help you achieve them!
