I am a teacher's teacher, having a strong background across multiple grade levels. I completed my student teaching in an 8th-grade classroom, and have taught students in grades 9 through 12 for the last decade. Just recently I have started tutoring online, as well, working with middle school, high school, and college students in the disciplines of English, essay writing, and college essay writing.
I use a variety of teaching styles in my classroom, including cooperative learning, individual writing tasks, group writing, image vocabulary, and many more. When you purchase a unit, lesson, or any material I offer through my store, I will do my best to make it clear what type of learning experience you can expect your students to have when those materials are used in your own classroom.
I have been teaching for eleven years and have been awarded continuing contract (tenure). I was also awarded the Master Teacher distinction through the State of Ohio.
I attended Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with a minor in Professional Education. I then went on to earn my Master of Education degree through Indiana Wesleyan University.
I live in a rural community in southwest Ohio with my wife and growing family. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and friends, hanging out and going on adventures whenever possible.
