Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my profile. As a passionate and dedicated educator, I believe that my experience and knowledge will effectively fulfill your tutoring needs! ALL students possess the ability to grow and succeed academically, and I am committed to providing focused and individualized instruction--along with understanding and enthusiasm--until my student reaches each of his or her academic goals.

Over six years, I taught 9th-12th grade English/Language Arts, including Honors and AP English; I also instructed semester-long test prep courses. I have a Master's degree in Secondary English Education and hold a current ELA teaching certificate for grades 6-12.

I have been in Chicago for one year, and my husband and I love living in the Wicker Park area! I am a nanny, avid reader (not surprising!) and runner. Maintaining strong relationships is also something I strongly value, and I believe that certainly applies to the student-teacher realm. I promise to know my students on a genuine level, which will nurture the lines of communication and confidence that will provide the foundation of classroom success!

I look forward to meeting you and working together towards our common purpose!

ACT English

I have developed curriculum and instructed semester-long test prep courses for high school sophomores and juniors.

English

I have my BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Virginia, as well as my Master's of Teaching in Secondary English Education (also completed at UVa). I am passionate about language, written and spoken, and am a qualified and dedicated educator. I taught high school English for six years and helped hundreds of students achieve academic success; I am eager to help you and/or your child as well!

Grammar

I am passionate about language, written and spoken, and am a qualified and dedicated educator. During my time in the classroom, my courses were largely based on a writing emphasis; mastery of grammar and mechanics is an essential building block! I am experienced in teaching and developing all genres of student writing (persuasive, expository, analytic, etc.). I also have extensive experience in teaching students how to effectively produce their college application essays. Additionally, I taught AP Literature for years, and so am highly capable in teaching the skills and techniques to write fluent AP essays.
