"I graduated in ELA from Purdue University in 2010. While there, I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful collection of professors and peers that challenged me to become the passionate and knowledgeable educator that I am today. I studied literature and creative writing with an emphasis on world literature and fiction writing, while also adept at curriculum planning, assessment, grammar, and composition.

Every child has a right to a solid education, but parents face a difficult decision as class sizes grow and teacher salaries drop. It is my intent to provide you and your child the same level of commitment and professionalism that you would find in a classroom, but with the added benefit of one-on-one instruction.

I believe in collaborative learning, the Socratic method, and active engagement; I believe in allowing students choice and helping students find the intrinsic motivation they need to be successful students and citizens."
