I have been tutoring students for the past 10 years, and currently teach 9th Grade English full time in New Jersey. For a while I wasn't sure if I wanted to become a Math or English teacher, and I greatly enjoy learning/teaching both subjects. Ultimately, I decided to pursue English, since reading is my passion. However, I really enjoy math, especially Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Middle School Math.
As a tutor at The College of New Jersey (the former Trenton State) I became a Master Tutor for Tutoring over 100 hours. By the time I graduated in May 2011, I accrued over 200 tutoring hours. For three semesters at TCNJ I took courses on tutoring to help me become an experienced tutor. At the TCNJ Tutoring Center, I would tutor writing, Literature, linguistics, language, and Math for Liberal Arts Majors. As an English Secondary Education major, I took classes on how to teach reading and writing.
I love reading Young Adult Literature, and share that love of literature with my current students in a variety of ways, constantly buying new books for my classroom and providing reading recommendations. My students joke that I have a better collection of books for teens and young adults than their public library. Some of my favorite authors include Suzanne Collins, Markus Zusak, Veronica Roth, J.K. Rowling, and Laurie Halse Anderson.
Thank you for considering me!
