About me

I am an English Language and Study Skills Coach. At UCR, I work on a freelance basis in the Study Skills and Writing Center. Mostly students come to see me when they need help writing a paper. I also offer workshops and tips on topics like reading more efficiently, memorizing material, taking good notes and writing personal statements. Enabling people to find a study/work/life balance gives me much joy and satisfaction. For that reason, I am grateful to be a member of the well-being team at UCR. I am also a certified Dru yoga and meditation teacher. So when I am not at UCR, I am typically teaching yoga or meditation. My qualifications include an Efficient Language Coaching Certificate (2015), TESOL certificate of Educational Studies in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (2008) and a B.A. in English Literature with a minor in Religion from Denison University (1983).

Please contact me by email if you want help writing a paper, or need advice on how to study more efficiently.
