I have been a secondary English teacher for the past seven years at a private, college-preparatory school. I have taught multiple language arts courses such as AP English Literature and Composition, American Literature, British Literature, and English 10. I have been trained as an Advance Placement English instructor in literature and composition, and I have had much success in the past several years with my students scoring high on the AP national test. Additionally, I have tutored students in reading, writing, and standardized test preparation such as the ACT.
I have always had a great rapport with my students. I am passionate about the language arts and feel that my job as a teacher/tutor is to help my students see the value of reading and writing on both a professional and individual level. I believe I am successful as a teacher because I have an ability to understand each student's learning style, and develop lessons that target that particular style, which in turn helps the student achieve his fullest potential.
