I love helping people better understand the English language. The more I study the language, I find that there are rules that govern how we speak and spell words, and I love sharing my new discoveries as the “language that doesn’t follow the rules” begins to make sense and follow rules. My greatest joy is when a student finally understands a new concept and has an “Ah Ha!” moment with new understanding lighting up their eyes. It brings me so much joy to be working with these younger kids. We help set a foundation in reading and writing that I saw missing in most of the college students I tutored. I feel it is a privilege to be a part of each student’s journey as they overcome challenges and realize how much they can accomplish with some hard work and a little bit of guidance.
