As you can see by my title, I am a bit of a logophile...

That aside, I've done a great deal of tutoring, and have come to realize that there is simply no substitute for thorough, patient, one-on-one attention for a student who needs academic assistance. My experience ranges from
tutoring pre-k to elementary aged children in language arts/phonics as well as an ESL native-Spanish speaking
adult. I also peer-tutored students in writing at DePaul University at the beginning of my undergraduate career. Additionally, last Autumn I began tutoring at 826 CHI, a local organization which emphasizes the importance of
language skills as a springboard for creativity and academic achievement.

When I tutor a client, I thoughtfully customize a curriculum and make adjustments according to the precise needs
of the student. My approach places careful emphasis on retention for long-term learning, since it's one thing to memorize dates and yet another to develop a connection to the material. I enjoy implementing fun techniques, which engender positive and effective learning outcomes. I believe that a truly enriching environment which provides meaning beyond the assignment creates the best possible academic experience. Language arts, literature, linguistics and etymology are true passions for me, which translates into success for my clients.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Phonics

For me, tutoring phonics begins by utilizing a phonemic awareness program based on multi-sensory flash cards. Using this method in addition to other complementary techniques and mnemonics, language mastery may begin.
