For the serious student, even if you don’t know it yet.

I am a teacher and a recently graduated Masters student who has been studying and learning how to study for some years now. I have insights and tricks to make the grueling hours of studying for survey courses as well as for writing and defending a thesis as easy as possible. I have studied abroad twice and taught ESL classes, so I have a lot of advice about living in different cultures, using a new language, and how to enjoy your time while getting work done.

I am hoping to turn this blog into a tutor service, where I can give one on one suggestions to help students complete projects, papers, a dissertation, or otherwise important assignments through planned video conference sessions. The video platform would also serve as an archival area for lectures, study prompts, and probably a few pictures of my cat wearing my glasses for students to peruse.

This is otherwise an affiliate website, or an attempt at one, so there are links to products that can earn me a commission (gotta pay those loans some how!), but I’ll do my best never to be a pushy type. Here is the required disclaimer–“We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.”  I use the products that I suggest, which, by no means, are the only route to go during the course of your studies. What I offer has worked for me and I hope can work for you.

Best of luck with school!
