Calling all parents of readers and writers: looking for an experienced language arts tutor to help your student hone those crucial skills? Whether your child needs help learning their ABCs or writing an outstanding college admissions essay, I'm here to help them reach those goals. I tutor in all areas of English at virtually all grade levels. I teach phonics, reading, reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, and writing (both scholarly and creative).
Prior experiences include working as an instructor in various (primarily Language Arts-based) subjects with grades K-5 at the I.Q. 180 Academy, two years of Peer Mentoring as a writing/academic tutor at Whittier College, as well as work private tutoring. In addition to all that, I am presently employed with The Princeton Review, Professional Tutors of America, and The Literacy Guild, helping students of all ages become strong writers, creative thinkers and more confident scholars.
I hold a bachelor's degree in English, with an emphasis in Creative Writing. Since I know how to write both as a student and as a storyteller, these are both skills I try to pass on to my students. Reading and writing aren't everyone's favorite subjects, but with clear direction, constructive feedback and plenty of room for imaginative fun, I make it my mission as a tutor to get students to take pride in their work and discover talents and passions they might not otherwise know they had.
