I was fortunate enough to have several amazing teachers, and that has led to my interest in teaching and helping people succeed. I have my B.A in Children's Literature and 8 years of tutoring experience. I have also worked as a teacher's aide/paraprofessional in a public school for six years.
I specialize in tutoring ESL (for adults and youth), English, Reading, Phonics, Reading Comprehension, Literature, Spelling, Writing (ages 4 to 12), and Grammar. I want kids to know that learning can be fun, so I often teach using educational games, some of which I create myself. I have more than six years of experience working with kids with special needs as well. To increase motivation I often incorporate student's interests (whether it's baseball, basketball, dance, or comics, etc). into their reading and writing lesson topics and homework assignments.
