My careers have entailed overseeing public relations at a Catholic high school and managing the local branch of a charity for missing and abducted children, though I always found myself being pulled into the world of teaching. I was an English major as an undergraduate, after which I went through the Master of Arts in Teaching program, earning a secondary teaching certification with endorsements in both English and Art. I am currently obtaining an educational doctorate in Educational Leadership. My time in the secondary classroom and my experience as an ACT and SAT instructor for a local learning center have collectively taught me how to effectively focus on student success. There is a science to turning student deficiencies into attainable benchmarks, but it is only achieved with an empathetic approach.
I’ve always believed that it is essential to realize the value of a content area in terms of how it can benefit the learner. The teaching of a subject is a means to an end in demonstrating the bigger picture of how a certain discipline can connect to real-life experiences. Rather than instructing in a vacuum, I’ve always taken a practical approach in enabling students to see how English Language Arts can prepare them for the world. I also see the virtue of teaching students how to learn. Memorizing facts is necessary for some levels of a content area, but it is equally vital to have students be able to think critically about what they learn as well. The old adage about teaching someone to fish rather than simply giving them a fish gets to the heart of what makes for good teaching. I strive to help learners understand the surface-level aspects of a lesson, while also comprehending the deeper meanings found in the content area. A student who learns how to learn will not only be successful academically, but also as a human being in the world.

The teachings aids found here contain content that has contributed to increased test scores for students taking the ACT or the SAT. The methods are proven to bring about success because they cover foundational information while also addressing common misunderstandings about grammar, reading, and writing that can make or break test scores. These study guides provide the necessary scaffolding for comprehension, allowing students to master the content needed for test success.
