I worked as the Assistant Director of College Counseling for a private school in New Jersey. My role was to help students create a list of colleges suitable to their academic interests, to discuss which standardized tests to take, and to guide the student throughout the college application process. I worked one on one with students, helping them with their college essays. I answered all questions and assisted students in every aspect of the college selection process.
I am an experienced English teacher with 13 years of public school and private school teaching experience. Grammar, writing, reading analysis, essay and research reporting, and Advanced Placement (AP) and pre-AP courses are my specialties. I earned a BA in English with a concentration in secondary education and an MA in Humanities. Patient, caring, and friendly, I love working with students of all ages. I hope I can help you with your English skill needs!
Literature is a mirror held up to society, and I particularly love to read and analyze it with students. Whether it's ancient Greece, Shakespeare's England, or another time and place, literature is a journey of the imagination, and we can learn so much about life through the author's eyes and the character's words. I have extensive experience teaching and analyzing literature -- novels, plays, poems -- and through patient discussion and analysis I can help students understand the author's intent and purpose. My love for literature is contagious, even for the reluctant reader!
I have worked with students of all ages, helping them with study skills. From organization of materials to time management skills, I have helped students know how to tackle an assignment and how to study for tests. Being prepared, having the right materials, repetition, adequate time management, and preparation helps students do their best.
Writing is an art form, and I love to help students of all ages improve their writing, research, and communication skills. I have had my writing published, so I practice what I preach! I would love to help you with your writing needs.
