I love to help students learn to express themselves effectively in writing, and to acquire reading skills that cause them to enjoy and retain the new information they garner from their reading. This includes helping them to gain confidence in taking the reading and writing components of the ACT and SAT college prep exams.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Help them to become familiar with good internet sources for news and information. Provide inspiring stories of how others have changed and improved their lives through education. Work with parents to provide incentives for spending time in researching and reading, analyzing the articles and arguments others present in their essays and reading opinion pieces in scholarly magazines and periodicals.
