I am a young, energetic, certified English teacher and experienced tutor looking to work with students in the Greater Manchester areas. I strongly believe in differentiating instruction to meet the individual needs of students. No one lesson or method fits every student, and I make it my mission to bring instruction to students in a manner the best fits their individual learning needs and styles. Learning should never be tedious!

As a current middle school teacher, former study center intern, and private tutor, I am experienced in assisting middle school students in all subjects. However, my passion lies in English literature and language arts, both of which I am adept at teaching across all age and learning levels. I hold a BA in English Literature from Kenyon College and an MA in Teaching from the University of Southern California with an emphasis in secondary English/Language Arts. I have taught English at both the middle and high school levels, as well as middle school study skills. Having grown up as a native English-speaker living in Japan, I am well-versed in assisting students learning English as a second language--especially in speaking confidence and reading comprehension.

ADD/ADHD

Through my Masters program, I was trained extensively in assisting students with ADD/ADHD to be successful in a classroom setting.
