I'm Georgie G., a 28 year old female with a true passion for literacy. I am fairly new to the tutoring field, but have a Bachelor's degree in English
and a Master's degree in Library and Information Science
, with an emphasis in School Libraries. Additionally, I have over 2 years of experience as an elementary school librarian which has allowed me to work with children of all ages and skill levels. As the librarian, I not only manage the library, but am responsible for developing lesson plans for Pre-K through 5th grade
that emphasize literacy and reflect subjects and skills being learned in their classrooms. While working at the library I have also been lucky enough to work with students in a one-on-one environment to improve their reading
skills. In addition, I spent 2 years as a nanny to elementary aged children that allowed me to work with them individually on subjects ranging from Math
. While I have loved my experience leading and managing a classroom, I feel that I excel
when working one-on-one with students to meet their individual goals.
I have both teaching and tutoring experience ranging from elementary students to high school students and from large classrooms of 25+ to sessions with students on an individual basis. In addition to my wide range of experiences, I am passionate about education and seeing student improvement in their reading, writing, and English speaking and listening skills. I find so much fulfillment in being able to help students meet their goals and grow in confidence and understanding. I am reliable, experienced, personable, and above all passionate about tutoring and improving literacy skills!
