Looking for a tutor who can help develop your child's writing and reading skills in a positive and confidence building environment? Then look no further! Graduating from Marymount University in 2009 with a B.A. in Liberal Studies, my two concentrations being English and Communications, I received a very well-rounded education.

I worked as a Writing Specialist at the University of Maryland's athletic department and the English department's writing center for two years. During my time at the University of Maryland, I aided students in brainstorming, developing, drafting, and editing papers and comprehending and analyzing text. The majority of my students were incoming freshman who lacked basic writing skills and confidence in their writing ability. I helped them expand their writing and research basics, and watched them develop a clear, concise, and confident writing style. My main focus is to teach my students how to develop an organized and cohesive paper while stressing the importance of analyzing and synthesizing literature and research.

I also served as a Learning Specialist at the athletic department for a year, and I was responsible for more than ten students who were labeled "at-risk," or in danger of failing out of the University's program. I helped these students with basic study skills such as time management, organization, note taking, and accountability. All of my students raised their GPAs by the end of the semester and continued to excel semesters after. At the English department, I assisted several ESL students who were unfamiliar with the language. Working at Huntington Learning Center for the past year, I have gained extensive experience tutoring SAT/ACT prep as well as writing, history, literature, and study skills.

Currently, I teach 9th and 1oth grade English at a local high school.
Working with multiple students on a daily basis, I am knowledgeable of various learning styles. Being exposed to these different styles, I have been able to tailor my teaching approaches to fit each student's personal needs. I am willing to work with students of any age and look forward to working with a variety of students.
