I am currently an English Literature Major with a Creative Writing Minor at Seattle University. In addition to being a full-time student I am also a stay at home mom to my five-year-old son Landon. Being a mom has taught me how to be patient, how to handle significant responsibility, how to be a better person. English is also something that speaks to who I am. Whether I am reading or writing, analyzing another author's work or creating my own, I adore every facet of the subject. I am a new hire with Frog Tutoring and I look forward to expanding my experience as a professional tutor. While I was in high school I informally assisted other students when needed but I have no formal tutoring experience. I am currently in the process of helping my five-year-old son learn the alphabet and understand reading/writing and this has contributed to my experience teaching others. My academic history and passion for helping students translate well to tutoring and mentoring. I feel that an individualized approach to tutoring is necessary. I want to get to know a student, fully understand their needs, and formulate my plan using the information I've gathered. It is also key to establish a good relationship with the parents and teachers in order to provide the highest quality tutoring experience possible. I absolutely adore helping others and I would love to help students of all grade levels achieve their academic goals. Fun Facts: I love to write and illustrate children's picture books in my free time. I never tire of pulling characters from my imagination and putting them on paper. Another passion that I have is running. It can be a tricky hobby in a state without year-round sun but I crave it. In addition I love to go camping and get outdoors. Hiking, swimming, biking, kayaking . . . if it is something to do outside, chances are I love it!
