I have always loved reading! I used to hide with my books as a child so that I could read for extra time. I have two bachelors degrees in literature (English and German literature), and as a teacher I have taught American, British, and general literature courses at the high school level and general English courses at the 7th and 8th grade levels. I can help you understand and interpret texts on a deeper level and craft essays that will make your teachers sit up and take notice. I enjoy helping students who have been reluctant readers find texts they are passionate about.
