With my certification, experience, and credentials, you may be confident that I am qualified to help your student improve his or her grades, test scores, and academic perception. I have successfully helped each of my students significantly improve in all of these areas with measurable scores as evidence.
As a private academy teacher, I understand the difficulties students have in a classroom setting. I also understand the concerns and frustration parents have with the education system. As a private tutor, I am able to provide each of my students with engaging and individualized instruction. I work with their school curriculum, so as to raise their grades, their test taking skills, so as to increase their scores, and their specific strengths and weaknesses because your student is not a carbon copy.
I graduated from the University of Georgia and I am fully certified at the T-4 level to teach English Language Arts in grades 6-12. I am currently a high school and middle school teacher at a private academy; during nonschool hours, I tutor professionally.
Literature ought to be taught holistically through using all the language arts to enable students to become active participants in their own learning. Through literature and the guidance of qualified teachers and tutors, students can cultivate and sharpen their perspectives of themselves and of society as they transact with texts as writers, readers, and interpreters. My goal for students is to help them participate in exciting, beneficial experiences with literature and encourage them to become life-long learners engaged with self, society, and the whole of life. These goals can be fostered and met through individual tutoring in which I can provide focused attention and detail to a student's needs.
During my education, I have been both a classroom teacher and private tutor. I have worked with students of high needs. I am aware that many students learn better in a more focused and individualized environment. This is not because of a difference in intelligence, but because of learning styles and multiple intelligences.
If you are an invested parent of a student or you are a student wanting to enhance your education in the language arts (grammar, reading, writing, vocabulary, test taking, etc.), I would be glad to help you.
I also work with the home-school community of students, so please contact me if this is your need.
