ExperienceI spent time as a volunteer tutoring at-risk 4th-8th grade boys in an after-school program in Philadelphia. I worked with these students on a full range of elementary and middle school subjects. I enjoyed helping these students improve their understanding of the material while encouraging them to be excited about school and their hard work.
I also have years of experience editing undergraduate and graduate level college writing, including a dissertation that was accepted for review by the University of Georgia Press without further revision. This experience, along with my degree and work in journalism, makes me well-suited to helping high school and college students hone their writing skills. I strive to help students improve their writing by coaching them on issues relating to spelling, clarity, flow, punctuation, and formatting while making sure their work remains in their own voice.
HobbiesI recently moved to the area with my husband, who accepted a teaching job here after receiving his Ph.D. in history. We have two cats and enjoy music, movies, playing games, and exploring our new home!
