Hi! I am a Massachusetts certified English teacher with three years' classroom experience teaching English at both the high school and middle school levels. My passion for reading and writing is contagious and aside from fostering a love of reading and writing in those I tutor, I will help them become better writers, more fluent readers with increased comprehension, and highly analytic thinkers.

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.

Bodybuilding

I have been on various lifting programs for both toning muscles and building mass, for the last 5-6 years. I am comfortable performing and teaching lifts like: squat, bench press, deadlift, etc.

Fitness

I played a variety of sports - baseball, football, basketball, tennis, soccer, swimming, volleyball, racquetball - throughout my childhood, high school, and college years. for the past 5-6 years I have lifted regularly and developed my own lifting programs to increase strength and tone. I've taken yoga classes and understand the importance of flexibility and holistic wellness.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for ten years, having started in high school. I took lessons from a Berklee educated and trained guitarist for the first two years of my learning. Over the last three years I've played dozens of open mic nights.

Public Speaking

In college I took a public speaking course and gave several speeches of varying length (10-20 minutes) and of various types (argumentative, informative). I now teach full time wherein I am in front of students all day speaking confidently and with expression.
