I am a certified English teacher and experienced tutor. I am certified for grades 6-12, but have tutoring experience with students as young as six and as old as fifty-five. I feel it is important to get to know the student in order to be able to successfully teach him or her. We do not teach subjects. We teach students and as such, we need to find out the best way to reach each of them. I am interested in new and innovative approaches. The look on the face of a student when (s)he actually gets it is priceless. I enjoy proofreading and editing papers. School has always been my happy place. I want to help others to feel that way.

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.

English

I have a BA in English Literature with Distinction from the University of Michigan. I also am certified to teach English/Language Arts at the secondary level. When completing my Master of Arts in Teaching I wrote my thesis on using contemporary music to teach poetry to students at the secondary level.
