Tutoring is about the growth of the student. I specialize in helping students realize their goals in reading, writing, grammar, and study skills. Sometimes a little help outside the classroom can make a huge difference in confidence and content mastery! Together we will set goals, identify areas of weakness, and create a plan for personal success.

I have five years of teaching experience and am dual-certified in both English Language Arts and as a Library Media Specialist. My Master's of Instruction degree from the University of Delaware and teaching at the secondary level have provided me with knowledge of diverse instructional strategies and individualized instruction.

From working with all different types of learners, I have many tips to help students become organized, stay engaged, improve comprehension, analyze texts, and communicate effectively. I am patient, creative, and innovative. And, most importantly, I love to teach. My goal as a tutor is to complement the classroom instruction with related and engaging lessons and activities. We’ll work hard, but we’ll have fun!

While my main area of focus is English Language Arts, I can help with other subjects in the humanities, as well as study skills, SAT prep, and college essay writing. I am available Monday through Thursday after 4:30 p.m. and on Saturdays.

I hope we can work together!
