Education

Seattle Pacific University - BA, English Literature

Experience

I have concentrated my studies to focus on the subjects of English and literature. I obtained a B.A. in English from Seattle Pacific University. My philosophy is that a student has to raise their communication abilities to the highest level they can attain in order to get better grades. I believe that the study of literature gives students many examples of how writers communicate abstract ideas to the reader in both fiction and nonfiction. The effort a student puts into such an intense study of literature will always help their own writing styles and increase their vocabulary. Confidence will grow when the student sees the effect this work has on improving their grades. I tutor all the subjects related to English. These courses include the mechanics of reading, writing, editing, phonics, and grammar. I tutor American, British, and Medieval literature. I also cover study skills and organization, plus literary analysis. I do tutoring for ACT and SAT test prep in the writing and verbal sections. I have tutored and helped a wide range of students from elementary grade levels to those in middle age. I like to read and do puzzles. These activities help me stay mentally sharp with my own language skills.
