My name is Mr. L. and I hold a degree from West Chester University to teach English at the secondary level, in grades 7-12. I chose to be a teacher because I love working with kids. I chose English because I have always had a love of words and language. English was always my strongest subject throughout school; I have never had a moment's struggle when it came to expressing myself either orally or on paper. I have a particular passion for grammar and I truly enjoy being able to demystify this topic for students. If you require help in strengthening your reading comprehension, I can definitely help you in this area as well. In addition to English, you probably noticed that I included 'Basic Math Skills' in my profile. Although I don't hold a degree to teach math, I am very proficient with these basic number skills leading up to Algebra. I have taught English in both Pennsylvania and California. During the school year, most of my time is spent substituting for the Downingtown school district.
It was my love of books that inspired me to become an English teacher. I have always enjoyed reading and few things give me greater pleasure than helping students discover their love for literature. Books, for me, are doorways to the past and, through them, we are better able to understand the present. I am well versed with the plot structure of most of the twentieth century classics and have taught analysis of the same in both California and Pennsylvania.
