Teaches students:

Teaching since:
August 2011

Literature, reading and writing, and communication are my forte. With over 4 years of studying English Literature and Cultural studies, I aim to help students become more comfortable with not only expressing themselves, but helping them understand literature and grammar.

As a tutor, I aim to teach students through easy-to-understand, accessible communication that can make vague concepts more concrete. Additionally, I have been an artist for most of my life, and love incorporating visual tools to teach!

My past teaching experience has involved assistant coaching for more than three years in policy debate and theater at the high school and junior high school level. This involves lecturing to students about sociological, philosophical, and political issues, as well as working one-on-one with students on speech-making and argumentative skills, which directly impact critical thinking skills and writing.

Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you!
