My tutoring experience ranges from general homework help for young children to intensive SAT tutoring for high school juniors and seniors. I have been an SAT tutor for five years, and have done ACT tutoring sporadically.I have tutored individually, with small groups, and taught in classrooms in the Northeast. I have tutored both privately and with organizations, and am happy to work with children of all ages. I am comfortable tutoring in all levels of English and social sciences, Spanish (which I write and speak fluently), up to pre-calculus in math, and basic biology and chemistry.
American history was always one of my favorite subjects in high school. I thoroughly enjoy learning and teaching about our country's history.
As a mentor with the Let's Get Ready program, I guided hundreds of students through the college application process, including SAT tutoring, college searches, help with college essays, and more. I am passionate about helping students get into the college of their dreams!
I have been a Teacher's Assistant in six elementary school classrooms (for semester-long placements) over the past five years. I have worked with students ranging in level from special needs to advanced, and have tutored one-on-one in reading, writing, phonics, science, math, geography, and history.
My long-standing plan to become an English teacher is still underway. I took the Praxis exams for teaching high school English and passed all of them. Although I took a detour to go to graduate school, my passions for literature, grammar, and writing are still as strong as ever!
I worked as a GED tutor on and off for three years in Holyoke, MA. I worked with my students (who ranged in age from 17-65) on math, reading, writing, science, and history projects and problems to help them pass their GED.
My favorite books include To Kill a Mockingbird, Slaughterhouse-Five, Catcher in the Rye, Franny and Zooey, and Beloved.
For my first two years in college, I studied to be a literacy specialist. I have a strong background in phonics coursework.
In high school, I was my school newspaper's editor in chief, and I thoroughly enjoyed correcting the grammar and punctuation of my peers in order to make better-written articles. In college, I edited all of my friends' papers. I'm one of those grammar nerds who can not only correct grammar and spelling, but explain exactly why and how something should be punctuated differently.
I have worked with students of all ages and ability levels on reading skills, including phonics and comprehension. As a TA in a first grade classroom, I worked one-on-one with students who were struggling to read for the first time. Later, I worked with adult students facing similar struggles in a GED program. I have also worked with advanced readers to encourage them to read more deeply and understand further meanings and implications of books, essays, poems, etc.
For five years, I worked with Let's Get Ready, an SAT preparation organization, as a director and Head Verbal Coach. I have coached students in small groups and one-on-one in both the reading and writing sections of the SAT. I help students tackle all parts of the critical reading section, from vocabulary to passage-based reading comprehension.
For five years, I worked with Let's Get Ready, an SAT preparation organization, as a director and Head Verbal Coach. I have coached students in small groups and one-on-one in both the reading and writing sections of the SAT.
I concentrated in sociology in my undergraduate education, and I am currently pursuing a MA in educational sociology.
