...Writing and grammar have been my strongest points as a student and young professional. I received high grades in all my college and graduate classes that involved excellent writing skills, such as rhetoric, film theory, philosophy, environmental law, etc. I served as editor and author for Yale's premier graduate student-run publication SAGE Magazine.
...Students feel rewarded, rejuvenated, and ready for more challenges. I love encouraging my students and supporting them in their goals, be it keeping up with their class, remedial support, learning and growing as fast as they can, studying for the SAT or ACT, or finding techniques that help them learn that they have never experienced before. They are always successful!
...I have edited manuscripts from books to cover letters, resumes, bios and websites as well. As a teacher for 11 years with a Masters in Education, I understand the importance of study skills to attain and retain pertinent information. Students who struggle need strategy.
