I am a certified English teacher with a Master’s in Education and a Bachelor’s in Communication Studies. Over the last three years, I have taught directly in both the middle school and high school environments. I also have experience working with upper elementary students. As an English teacher working in a public school, I've learned that every student learns differently.
I am committed to creating a positive tutoring environment for your child where he or she will feel comfortable asking questions, thinking critically and growing as a reader and writer. Together, we will work to clearly identify learning objectives for your child, and I will tutor your child in a way that suits his or her learning style. For a student struggling with grammatical concepts, this may mean kicking a soccer ball back and forth in order to understand the difference between direct and indirect objects. For another student who struggles with reading comprehension, this may mean diagramming the elements of plot or making character cards.
I believe every student is capable of learning and with specialized one-on-one instruction learning can become so much less intimidating. Generally, I work with students on homework assignments or class projects. This could mean spending time generating a thesis for an upcoming paper, proofreading a rough draft or organizing a book report. If there is additional time after going over homework and preparing for upcoming tests, I’m happy to use supplemental materials to help your student excel!
