Hello. I'm a friendly, dynamic tutor with experience teaching students from middle school age to adults returning to school. I have three years of experience teaching high school English and five years of experience teaching college composition. I also have taught speech and reading classes. I really enjoy working one-on-one with students because it allows me to "see the wheels turning" as they learn to understand what they are reading or express their ideas in writing. I can be a proofreader, but I'd rather help students through the entire process of writing an essay so they develop skills to eventually be independent writers.
My other academic strength is math; I taught a basic algebra (college) class for six years and tutored many students along the way. It is so rewarding to hear students tell me that I presented a math concept in a way they could finally understand. And, of course, my uncommon combination of verbal and math skills makes me an ideal tutor for the ACT and admission tests like the TEAS.
It's important to me that my students build confidence as well as skills, so whether you are struggling with English, math, or a big test, please know that I have a non-intimidating approach, a good sense of humor, and a lot of patience.
