I have four years of teaching experience in American History. I have a BA in History from Michigan State University.
I have taught English and Creative Writing for the past 4 years. I am an avid reader and writer. I have a lot of experience with different types of writing genres as well as with citations. I can assist with grammar, word choice, adding detail, and other aspects of improving writing.
Study Skills include many important aspects required for academic success. Things I would focus on when teaching study skills are test-taking strategies, organization of writing, personal organization (finding a system that works for homework), reviewing of notes, and note-taking skills.
I teach middle school students, and one of the biggest challenges I see with them is the difficulty of balance. I spend a lot of time with students working on time management, organization, and setting routines. This has helped tremendously and has helped many students be more successful.
