I believe that every student has the ability to improve. It may be a student currently struggling with a subject. Or perhaps the student is already proficient but wants to improve in a few key areas. In any case, the right combination of dedication and guidance from a tutor can help tremendously.

I also believe that each student is different, and their tutoring should be tailored to their strengths and weaknesses. That is why I view each student individually and attempt to match the sessions to what will help the student the most. I am a positive person and will always approach a student with positivity, even when they are having difficulty, because confidence, combined with knowledge, is one of the most underrated and important elements in academic success.

I have a Master's degree in English with a focus in writing. I have taught and tutored at the college, high school and elementary school levels. I can help improve the reading and writing skills of you or your child.

Grammar

Grammar can be a very difficult skill to master because there are so many different rules. However, if students practice and focus on these areas, they can begin to fully grasp the ways to properly punctuate.

Study Skills

I have tutored a number of students on study skills, focusing on organization, note-taking, reviewing material, and assessment. I have created and provided study skills materials for students I have tutored. I also have four years of classroom teaching experience, so I know what sorts of study skills are valuable.

Writing

Writing is about more than simply constructing sentences. It's about generating ideas, sorting out the best ideas, developing those thoughts, and finding proper support for one's main idea.
