Education

Portland State University - BA, English (w/ minor in Secondary Education) , Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology - MA, Learning Technologies

Experience

As an instructor, I want to share my expertise and help all individuals enjoy writing and reading like I do. Whether grasping exam taking strategies or writing essays, individuals will learn to immerse themselves in their work and, along the way, learn valuable things about themselves. When I help individuals with the materials for their college admissions or classwork, I stress the importance of understanding the concepts fully over memorizing the material mindlessly. I want to impart to these young students that they need these skills to navigate school and successfully progress through their entire lives. I received a bachelor's degree in English at Portland State University. I continued my education at Pepperdine University and received my master's degree in learning technology. I am presently a freelance consultant for software firms where I develop educational materials. I am able to tutor in essay editing, prepping for the SAT exam, reading, writing, grammar and mechanics, English, literature, and ESL/ELL.In my spare time, I really enjoy exploring all the things that the city has to offer, including the local food culture. I also love hiking the beautiful trails. I like to cook and play piano. I currently reside in Portland, OR.
