I have been an employee with Barrington School District #220 for five years. During that time I have worked as a paraprofessional with students who have special needs, as well as ESL students. I also taught Sophomore level speech at Barrington High School. I am familiar with multiple pedagogical strategies and have experience implementing strategies for a variety of students' needs and abilities. I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a Bachelor's in English Secondary Education with Honors. Currently I am a graduate student of Linguistics and ESL (English as a Second Language). I know the Ukrainian language, and have worked with students from Ukraine with English skills. I currently, will be going to graduate school full time and I am looking to tutor on the side.

English

I have a bachelors degree in English Secondary Education with honors. I have taught Sophomore level speech at Barrington High School. During my 5 years at Barrington School District I worked with students with varying needs and abilities on improving their English Language Arts skills.

ESL/ESOL

I am a graduate student of linguistics and ESL (English as a Second Language). I have tutored and worked with students, friends and family from Ukraine with learning English.

Grammar

I have implemented a variety of grammar strategies during my 5 years at Barrington School District. Specifically, a linguistics approach to teaching grammar using "Code-Switching" to break-down the structure of grammar used by students as it compares to standard English grammar rules.

Reading

During my years at Barrington Middle School I worked one on one with a student who had special needs. When this student arrived to the middle school, this student could not read. During a 3 year period I worked with this student from phonics to word structure using a variety of teaching strategies and following the direct instruction this student left the middle school reading close to a second grade reading level.

Writing

I have tutored students at the college level on a variety of writing projects from different disciplines. Furthermore, I have worked with students at the middle school and high school level during my 5 years at Barrington School District.
