Hello. I am an energetic, engaging ELA teacher with 25 years experience in the classroom at both the high school (Saline High School, Saline, Michigan) and college level (University of Michigan, Comprehensive Studies Program). An expert at understanding the intricacies of the English language, I am adept at teaching college-level writing skills to young people through a number of practical and tested strategies. My teaching experience is quite vast, having taught AP Language and Composition, Honors Ninth and Tenth Grade English, Film Studies, Journalism, and ACT/SAT Prep courses. Recognized for being outgoing and compassionate, I am able to reach a wide variety of personalities, abilities, and backgrounds in academic, professional, and social environments.
I teach: AP Language and Composition, Honors (and regular) English 9, Honors (and regular) English 10, Film Studies, Journalism (Newspaper and Yearbook), SAT and ACT Prep, American Literature, Speech, Rhetoric, Argumentative Writing, Creative Writing, Research Writing, and Grammar
