No matter where you are in life – a student, a recent graduate, or a member of the workforce, chances are you have some reading and writing-related goals. Wouldn't it be great to meet those goals and feel at ease along the way? I'm dedicated to helping you do just this! I'm an English professor and former paralegal, who also does private tutoring. This unique blend of academic and corporate skills makes me a more dynamic tutor. I'm just as comfortable instructing someone in junior high school as I am teaching an adult. In addition, I teach everything from basic composition to upper level technical writing. Here's more about my tutoring practices:
I typically work with ages 12 through adult.
I promote a supportive and positive environment by taking a holistic approach to tutoring. This means that I can help you determine outside factors that affect your performance, such as lack of sleep, fear of failure, or anxiety. I'll help you work through some of these academic trouble spots, or refer you elsewhere if you need help outside the scope of my services.
I'm patient and sensitive to each student’s needs.
I provide customized lessons based on your personal learning goals, in accordance with Common Core Curriculum.
I make sessions engaging, with techniques such as timed-writing exercises and readings that match your interests.
