I am a former elementary school teacher (grade 5) and a current PhD student at the University of Maryland, College Park. I've centered my entire academic and professional careers around educational services because I love learning and being a part of the learning process. I find tutoring and teaching to be highly rewarding and enjoy working with students from all age groups. I have experience working with a diverse clientele ranging in age from pre-k through adult education in both formal and informal settings. Let me help you with your English homework, or your college admissions essay. I can assist your child with reading comprehension and language skills, or help you brush up on grammar for that term paper you've been dragging your feet on. Aside from the academic "stuff" I'm very personable, patient, and professional. Most importantly, I want to help you reach your academic goals in a way that meets your individual needs. I look forward to working with you!
