I love teaching and sharing what I know. If I don't know something, I will definitely find it out for my student. I love explaining things so they are tangible and seeing the knowledge come alive. I don't believe knowledge should be hoarded. I think with the proper motivation, a student can learn anything. It is a wonderful feeling to suddenly see something that seemed unattainable within one's grasp. It has happened to me and will definitely happen for you!
I have a BA in English literature and grammar with elective emphasis on linguistics and history of language(s). I completed Upper Level coursework at SNHU as a grad student. I worked for Ashford University as a lesson planner and teacher as well as grading papers. I was the recipient of the R.U.M. Poetry award two years in a row for JSU -- Runner Up and Third place.
I am enthusiastic about teaching! My only flaw is that my eagerness comes across too strong! I am very excited to be your tutor and I can't wait to walk with you along the path that you will take to reach your academic future! I will go at the pace YOU dictate and allow you to ask all you wish to ask about subject matter! If I am stumped, I will find an answer for you immediately! I hope that a respectful learning environment can also be wonderfully fun!

Thank you. You made things so easy to understand. I am glad you also went over the vocabulary with me as I'm a foreign student. It all makes more sense and thank you for the study tips.a year ago
Wow, I never thought of German that way. It is kind of fun and I am getting interested in learning foreign languages now. It actually really is a beautiful language when you take the time to listen and hear it spoken. It is different than what most people think. Thanks for taking the time to work with me.a year ago
I really appreciate you being available on such short notice and for answering all of my questions! Thank you for also writing down notes that I can look over later if I need further help!a year ago
Thank you very much for your help and taking the time to work with me, encourage me, and correct my English errors. Your encouragement really means a lot to me and makes me feel wonderful as I often feel invisible away from my home country. You have told me that my writing is good and helped me strengthen it. I feel more confident and pleased with myself.a year ago
