Education

Arkansas Tech University - Bachelors, Creative Writing

Experience

My educational background sets the stage for my tutoring specialties. I have bachelor's degrees from Arkansas Tech University in creative writing and theater. I am beginning my journey toward a graduate degree in creative writing in my new home - Denver, Colorado. I have been an editor for the Arkansas Tech University literary magazine and a substitute teacher of children from elementary to high school in many subjects. I tutor English, reading, writing, elementary math, and public speaking, to name a few subjects. I also help students prepare for the reading, writing, and English sections of the ACT and SAT. My philosophy is to make the learning experience one in which students can express themselves. I try to relate concepts to my students in ways that may be untraditional, but make sense to them. For instance, I am knowledgeable about video games and use that knowledge to relate concepts to students. This engages them and makes learning more fun. I strive to be compassionate and empathetic as a tutor, and I believe my students respond to both. When I'm not working, I enjoy dogs and other animals (and learning about them in documentaries), public speaking, yoga, poetry, writing, and reading.
