I offer one-on-one academic support tailor-made for students who need additional support in reading and responding to literary texts, passing high-stakes tests (ex. Florida State Assessment, ACT, SAT) and essay writing. I provide personal instruction based upon the assessed standards and benchmarks required by the Florida Department of Education and the new Common Core Standards. My goal is to ensure academic success and personal achievement for every child and prepare students for college or a career.

I am a highly qualified English teacher with full endorsements in reading and ESOL and have taught English Honors, Yearbook Journalism and Intensive Reading for students in secondary school.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
