Don't get English? That's all right. I don't get math, fashion, or sports. English, though, is my strong suit. I'm young, I don't have a degree (actually, I'm enrolled in college right now), but I do have a few unique qualifications.

First, I'm young. I remember what school is like from the student's perspective (Shame on you for having a life and wanting justification for your schoolwork, right?). I remember what study tools worked and what didn't. I know what it's like to balance schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and (heaven forbid!) friends. I have a passion for expressing myself, I love reading and literature, but I understand if it's not your cup of tea. Are you just trying to pass a class? That's fine. My goal is to help you understand and appreciate, not start a career in English.

Second: Not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty good at English. I got a perfect 36 on the English related portions of the ACT. (I got an 18 on the math portion. Just goes to show you, right? Should have found a tutor...) My strength is more in the principles than the labels. It took me the longest time to figure out the difference between an adjective and an adverb. Now I know, and I can help you figure it out. I love Mnemonics (memory tricks), because they give you a reason to remember something. You can remember something a lot better if there is a point to remembering it. Go figure.

Third, I'm the second oldest of eight kids. Why does that matter? I've helped with a lot of homework, endured a lot of demands, and taped together a lot of essays torn in frustration. I won't get mad at you, I promise. I know what it's like to struggle. Look at my math scores. As much like a quote from your obnoxious English teacher as it sounds: Reading/writing/'rithmetic (I guess, but don't ask me) can be fun!
