I am currently available to refresh students' skills as they head back to school! Middle school readers and writers who need a bit of a refresher in reading, summarizing, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar or starting essays might especially benefit from working with me.
I am a Massachusetts certified teacher with a license in English for grades 5-12, Social Studies for grades 5-8, and Drama (which includes Dramatic literature, public speaking, and performance skills) for grades K-12.
As a former journalist and middle school English teacher, my strength is in writing and editing, helping students generate ideas, as well as helping them organize thoughts and essays. We will work together to create strategies that they can then apply to other assignments.
I also have experience as a Title I Tutor, working on reading and math skills for students in grades 3-8. I observed their classes, worked with them one-on-one, in small groups, and after school in Homework Clubs. I also tutored Special Education students individually and have worked in Learning Centers as well.
I am currently earning my second Masters degree in Middle School Humanities and would be happy to meet you and learn how I can best help you create learning strategies, study skills, organizational skills, and confidence.
