Hello and thank you for considering me as your and/or your child's tutor! My name is Erica, and I have been working in the education field for the past six years. I began teaching at academic discipline-based, Harry Potter camps, where I facilitated history, plant science, cooking, and writing classes with students ranging from 4 years old to adult in Illinois and Pennsylvania. After studying and earning my B.A. in English Education at Northern Illinois University, I worked as a public school teacher for middle school Language Arts and high school American Literature. My time spent in the school district also included after-school tutoring in multiple subjects including Algebra, American History, and Environmental Science.
I left Illinois to pursue my MFA in Creative Writing in Maine. I taught Basic Writing courses at a community college in Maine and co-taught a graduate-level prose writing workshop while finishing my MFA.
I get along with mostly everybody, but I work very well with struggling students--those who are apathetic or have difficulty concentrating--because I have been in that mindset as a student before.
