I love English! I have been a bookworm all my life. I have my degree in English from Ursinus College and graduated in 2011. Since then I have become a part-time babysitter and regularly help the little girl I babysit with her homework. I can tutor any level from about fourth grade and up and have a definite patience for children. My experiences babysitting in the past year have really helped me understand children, and any child who is willing to learn can most definitely be helped. I tutored abroad while I lived in France and would love the opportunity to share my language and writing skills with kids that want to learn. I try to keep things fun and interesting and be as understanding as I can while maintaining discipline. I also think that one thing that sets me about from other tutors is my passion. I love literature, language, and grammar and welcome the opportunity to share my love of words with any child that needs help or doesn't understand something. I think one thing that sets me apart from other tutors is my willingness to laugh while maintaining focus on the subject.
Being someone that spent 6 months in France without being allowed to speak English, I understand how hard and frustrating it can be to learn a new language. I am extremely understanding when it comes to this and am good at tailoring each lesson for each student.
I have a minor in Film Studies from Ursinus University which allows me to analyse, critique, and review films based on what is seen and heard in the film and also using scholarly articles as evidence to back up arguments.
I have been a bookworm for years, making me especially astute in the subject of Literature. I am also extremely analytical, making it easy for me to analyze entire books and willing to help with book reports and literary papers. Anything from Animal Farm to Beloved to As I Lay Dying. Bring it on.
How can I put this...I write all of the time. I write blog posts, journal entries, short stories, arguments, papers, speeches, and everything else that you can think of. I'm a whiz at writing and I love to teach it.
