1) When and why did you first become involved with TutaPoint?

I struggled with confidence in math, so I try to increase students’ confidence in their writing.
3) What was your favorite and least favorite subject in school?
My favorite subject was choir, and my least favorite was math.
4) What is your tutoring philosophy?
I make better writers, not just better writing. I focus on students’ writing process and on identifying their strengths to increase their confidence.
5) What do you do for work outside of TutaPoint?
I tutor writing at a local college and edit books.
