I have a degree in high school English. In college, I worked in the writing lab tutoring students in writing and basic school skills such as test-taking, study skills, and note-taking. In college I was the student editor for the English department's annual literary review. I have also attended and presented at the National Conference for Peer Tutoring. I look forward to working with you or your child so that we can make and achieve the skills he or she needs to be successful in school and in life.

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.

ACT English

I took the ACT in high school. I would be able to provide the student with tips in how to take tests, along with practice questions we would go over.

Literature

This is my favorite subject! I can help with all levels of high school English and other English-related subjects.

Proofreading

Proofreading does not just end with Spell Check! I can help you or your child learn better techniques in proof reading that with help produce better writing.

Public Speaking

I have taken two classes in college on public speaking. I have given numerous presentations in college to groups and have taught in front of classrooms. My area of assistance would be to provide the student with tips concerning public speaking, including getting over fears.

Reading

Reading comprehension is a subject that can be taught using various reading strategies. Improving reading comprehension can help students in many areas. I can help you or your child learn to read better and smarter!

Soccer

I played soccer growing up and played in high school. I have also played recreationally through college and beyond. I have also coached travel teams and assisted in coaching high school teams.

Writing

As a former writing tutor in a university, I know the pressure many students face to produce good pieces of writing. I can help with all aspects of writing, from brainstorming to proof reading and editing.
