Hello, my name is Sandy. I am going into my fourth year of college and I am working on my teaching certificate. I have majored in English and studied many other courses as well.

I feel very comfortable tutoring is Literature, Creative Writing (including essay writing, poetry, and flash fiction). I have also taken several critical thinking and ethics classes.

I have not tutored professionally yet, but I have taken Intro to Ed courses and a tutoring/self-learning course.

I also am a mother of three children who have all done very well in school.

I have been interested in creative writing ever since I was very young, so I have a lot of practice in teaching this subject. A couple of my poems have been published as well.

Please feel free to contact me to see if we would be a good "fit".
