Peggy has an absolute love for teaching Test Prep, English, Reading, and Writing. She spent more than six years as a lead instructor in test prep at a center in Alabama, and she confidently teaches strategies for the verbal sections of the SAT and ACT. Before that experience, she devoted years to teaching English at both the college level and as one-on-one tutoring. She has taught English to students ranging from 2-year-old toddlers to Business English for CEOs and Speech Writing and Editing for members of the House of Representatives in Japan
Peggy has practiced meditation on and off for approximately 20 years. Perhaps not surprisingly, practicing mindfulness on an everyday basis has greatly affected her teaching, whether she is teaching a class of 25 college students, a group of 15 ESL adult students, or a one-on-one ACT tutoring student. Consciously practicing compassion and empathy towards a student in place of giving in to frustration when something isn’t “clicking,” has led her to many alternative solutions that she believes she otherwise would have never stumbled upon. Understanding why a student may not be grasping a specific concept and taking into consideration his or her perspective has greatly benefitted both her teaching and her students. Without a doubt, becoming more serious about meditation and mindfulness was one of the most impactful paths that Peggy has chosen.
