I have worked with various populations in differing capacities. My most recent tutoring venue was with Lincoln University where I taught remedial writing to college students. Most of these young adults needed basic grammar and could neither read nor write above a fourth grade level. During that time I presented "mini-lessons" on grammar, worked with individual learners on their essays, and prepared materials for lessons in grammar and in African-American History.
From the spring of 1989 through the summer of 1991 I worked for two Literacy Volunteers of America programs. I served first as Student Coordinator for the Lancaster-Lebanon Literacy Council in the capacity of Student Coordinator. I arranged Tutor/Student meetings and tutored in both Basic Reading and ESL. I served much the same function as Tutor Coordinator with the Adult Reading Program of the Trenton Free Public Library.
Additionally, I assisted the classroom teacher with five blind and special needs students at Royer-Greaves School For Blind.
I possess a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Creative Writing, as well as a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature. I spent a semester abroad at the College of St. Paul and St. Mary in Cheltenham, England.
My tutoring methods are interactive and tailored to the needs of my student. I expect to work with the parents and the students to create the right curriculum for the students.
My experience at Lincoln University included preparing and presenting lessons in grammar and punctuation.
I tutored adults in basic reading while employed with two different LVA programs.
One of my duties as a Writing Tutor was to help students with their papers.
