I am no stranger to the classroom or to tutoring. As an M.A. student in English at Penn State, I teach a course section of English 15, the university's entry-level writing course. I am certified as a tutor by the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA), and I have tutored a wide variety of subjects, including writing, speech, ESOL, and Ancient Greek. I am also a published author; my middle grade novel was published in 2009.
My greatest joy as a tutor is being able to adapt my teaching strategies to meet the unique needs and interests of my students. Even after teaching the same subjects for years, I have never grown bored of the material I work with, because my students' varying needs and interests constantly transforms the experience of teaching and makes it fresh, new, and exciting.
