I am a certified teacher and Reading Specialist and have experience teaching English Language Arts both at the middle school and high school level. I also have experience in test preparation, including ACT prep. I have taught Writing, English, and Reading ACT prep classes at a very competitive high school. I am currently teaching 7th grade gifted and 8th grade Language Arts.
I recently completed my Master's degree as a Reading Specialist. I am also a summa cum laude graduate from DePaul University with a B.A. in English Education. I also completed coursework for an ESL approval.
I enjoy working with students of all ages and subjects. I have over six years of experience tutoring in a variety of subject areas. My areas of expertise are reading, writing, study skills, and test preparation. My experience is with a diverse range of students from the elementary level to the college/adult level.
I gear my tutoring sessions to match the unique needs of my students. I incorporate a variety of materials to help make concepts understandable and relevant to my students. I also build off of my students' strengths and help them to set and achieve their learning goals, and I can help you achieve your goals too!
