About Me



I believe in a positive and individualized approach to teaching, using as many modes as possible. These include: auditory, visual, kinesthetic and tactile approaches. I strongly believe that every student should experience success to build confidence.

I have had experience working as a freelance writer, assistance editor, copyeditor, contributing writer and sole writer or various newspapers, magazines and websites which has helped me improve my style of writing immensely over the years.


I have a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master of Arts in Creative Writing. My specialty focus was poetry, but I also studied fiction extensively. I also studied Psychology and Education during my time in University.


As an education major, I had practical experiences in the classroom, and was an early education teacher as well. I home schooled for several years and lead group teaching sessions in writing. I have worked with students with special needs such as writing, math and reading disabilities as well as ADHD.


I enjoy writing both literary short stories and poetry, as well as, writing for young people. I enjoy music, travel and spending time with family.
