My name is Seth. I currently live in Manchester and work as a special education aide at Manchester West High School. I have six years of English and language arts teaching experience at the middle and secondary levels, and I specialize in helping students improve their understanding of and performance in essay writing through skill building exercises such as use of a detailed writing process, revising strategies, graphic organizers, and activities focused on developing mastery with expository, persuasive, and research writing. I also have experience working with students on college admissions essays, which have their own ins and outs to consider and practice.
I also have experience working with students to help them improve their analysis skills, mostly within the realm of literature and American history. I have in the past championed various active reading strategies and analytical processes that have made the process more manageable and smooth.
I pride myself in my sense of humor and easygoing personality, and I have a real passion for working with students. I relish the opportunity to work with students of various ability levels and interest areas, and I accommodate a number of learning styles and personal idiosyncrasies, given that I have some of my own!
I look forward to meeting and working with you!
