Teaching has always been my passion. I have taught English and writing for five years. I have taught both freshman and seniors. Throughout those five years, I have had practice integrating ACT work into daily lessons, along with teaching the art of college personal statements. I have done extensive teaching of letter writing, college essays, persuasive writing, creative writing, literature analysis, quote identification/analysis, vocabulary, reading strategies, and comprehension. I am currently getting my masters degree in Special Education. I should finish my masters in the summer of 2013.
I truly believe that teaching can be fun and that all students have the ability to learn from any situation. Students that I tutor will be expected to work hard and not expect the answers to be given to them. Rather, I will work with the student to ensure that they are learning the given concept for future use. I enjoy using real world examples to tie the material to situations that the student is familiar with. I can help with homework, studying for tests or various skills to improve overall knowledge of a subject. Tutoring can be completed at any time during the days and on the weekends. I encourage parents to ask questions often about how their student is progressing within the tutoring sessions and any concerns that they have about their student's success.
