I currently teach critical reading, writing, ESL, and SAT preparation at two nonpublic schools in the New York City area. Previously in the Chicago area, I taught courses on literature, philosophy, and music in the humanities department at Harold Washington College, as well as all levels of English coursework at Prairie State College--developmental writing classes through upper level literature courses. Additionally, I have several years of tutoring experience in college writing centers, as well as private tutoring experience on the high school level.

I have a BA in English from Appalachian State University and an MA from the University of Chicago. I can help students with all stages of the writing process, from brainstorming to proofreading final drafts, as well as reading comprehension, from Plato to Shakespeare to Joyce. I genuinely enjoy tutoring and look forward to working with you!

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. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have experience teaching English at the high school and college level, including critical reading, essay writing, grammar, and literary analysis.

Grammar

I have taught grammar at the high school and college level.

Literature

In college, I specialized in 20th Century British Literature and Japanese literature in translation. As a teacher, I have taught a wide range of literary genres, including Shakespearean drama, African American literature, and general surveys of American and British literature.

SAT Writing

I have worked my high school students and college students to learn the skill of writing a timed essay. Additionally, I have worked with high school students on SAT preparation specifically.

Writing

I have taught and tutored writing at both the high school and college level. In addition to expository writing, I have completed coursework and have an interest in creative fiction and nonfiction writing.
