About

I teach high school and middle school students at Tilden Preparatory School in Walnut Creek. The classes I primarily teach include English, History, Art and Art History.

For over 10 years, I taught writing at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, CA.  I helped students in the Writing Center as well as in the classroom leading classes such as Critical Thinking & Writing, Intro to Academic Writing, and World Cultures & Art Types.

I have served as a writing consultant at several university writing centers and edited academic papers in the fields of psychology, art history and education. I also have experience tutoring elementary phonics and comprehension using methods from Lindamood-Bell and Orton-Gillingham learning systems.

My patience and skill have successfully supported students with dyslexia, autism spectrum disorders and other learning challenges.  When not teaching, I enjoy playing the fiddle and drawing.
