I am a second-career teacher with experience teaching English-Language Arts and Social Studies at the middle and high school levels. I have taught both gifted and special needs students. I have a Master's degree in Education- ESOL and am an adjunct instructor at the Community College of Allegheny County.

I am a voracious reader, with familiarity in three languages other than English. I am also a writer, with several articles published online. I love to write, love to share writing and love to help others find their writing voice.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Reading: exploration of fiction and nonfiction with reading comprehension pairing with critical thinking.
Writing: Vocabulary, grammar and frequent writing pieces of increasing lengths, with prompt feedback and revision practice.
