I am a recent English MA graduate who has spent nearly 6 years tutoring at the high school and college level, as well as teaching college level writing at a university for a year. When working with students I encourage more than just rote memorization; rather, I want students to engage with subject content in a way that promotes independent thinking and creativity. There are few jobs more rewarding than tutoring, and I have been lucky enough to tutor a diverse group of students throughout my career.
I specialize in tutoring English at all levels, particularly in writing skills and reading comprehension. I also specialize in tutoring for GRE, SAT, and ACT English and Math (I have passed the SAT, CBEST, and GRE with above average scores in all subjects). When working with students, I focus on building the student's knowledge by beginning with what they know and using a Socratic method of inquiry. In order to encourage lasting intellectual growth, review and revision are central to my tutoring philosophy.
I am a very flexible tutor. I try my best to meet the wishes of the parents and the needs of the student. As such, I encourage communication and feedback between myself, the student, and the parent to ensure that everyone is satisfied.
While I am also flexible with appointments, I do require a 24-hour cancellation policy. Makeup sessions will be accommodated at the earliest possible time.
I work at a location of your convenience, whether at the student's house or at a public location of your choice.
Thank you for considering me as a tutor and I look forward to helping you meet your education goals.
