I have been an English tutor for almost 3 years, and absolutely love what I do! I help students from kindergarten to graduate school improve their reading and writing abilities. I firmly believe in every student's capabilities and potential to succeed and that they should be given every possible tool available to help them achieve their goals and dreams. I teach by example and positive reinforcement; I always try to point out what the student has done correctly before offering constructive criticism.
Reading has always been one of my favorite pastimes; I believe books are the key to greater insight and understanding of the world. Some of my favorite books are Jane Eyre, Hamlet, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. One aspect of being a tutor that I enjoy is proofreading papers; I find great pleasure in going through essays or any other assignment in great detail to ensure a student is turning in a quality work.
All in all, I find language arts to be a very fulfilling and enjoyable subject and love helping others find meaning in it as well.
"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them." ~Mark Twain, attributed
