Salutations! I have enjoyed teaching in Montgomery County Public Schools for nine years as a high school English teacher. My favorite subjects include Creative Writing, AP Language and Literature and TV Production. I have also taught 10th, 11th and 12th grade curricula on both regular and honors levels. While teaching, I also sponsored the school's literary magazine for several years. I hold a B.S. in English and Education as well as a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.
I am passionate about English, Literature, Poetry, Language, and Reading. I also like earth and space science, as well as anatomy and biology. I love hiking, origami, and traveling. More than anything I like to spend time reading or playing with my dog, Brekean. I like to think of teaching and tutoring as a partnership built between the educator and the student: we both have to come prepared with questions and an open mind to get the most out of our time together. I like hands-on learning, and the benefit of immediately applying newly learned skills. I've learned more from being wrong or making mistakes during the learning process than I have from getting it right the first time, which has taught me to value perseverance and creativity.
