ExperienceI am a certified English teacher, with a Masters in English Education, and a nearly complete Masters in English Literature. I am an English professor - at Tunxis Community College I taught developmental reading and writing and at Southern Connecticut State University I taught Composition and Inquiry. I have been tutoring for nine years at a wide variety of levels, from middle school aged to adult students.
HobbiesFencing, summer stock technical theatre, yoga, skiing, dancing (competitive Irish step, salsa, folk, swing, ballroom), cooking international cuisines, squash, singing, playing the oboe and the cello, hiking, and canoeing.
I speak ASL and Spanish, and have studied Thai and French.
I enjoy teaching students to work on their own, equipping them with the tools needed for them to master skills and concepts without my help.
