What I love most about working with students, from middle school to college age and beyond, is sharing my love of writing and literature in a way that sparks their curiosity and engages their appetite for learning.
Even the driest essay assignments offer an opportunity to experience the satisfaction of developing a command of clear thinking and writing, whether the subject is science, history or literature. Even the most challenging novels, plays or poems offer the excitement of exploring the way literature can open up new worlds and experiences.
My studies as an undergraduate and masters student at Harvard have given me an ease with high standards of writing in any subject. I have also spent many years teaching ESL, in the US and Central America, and enjoy working with students from diverse backgrounds and at all levels of English mastery.
My greatest gift – and satisfaction – as a tutor is helping students discover the rewards of improving their writing in all subjects, and of expanding their gifts as readers.
I am new to WyzAnt, but bring a deep well of experience as a private tutor and adjunct professor, as well as patience, empathy and a sense of humor. Developing a rapport with students of all levels and abilities is a key part of inspiring them to improve their work, and I deeply enjoy the process of helping students discover and develop their strengths.
