As a current graduate student in the master of arts in teaching (MAT) program at Seattle Pacific University, I understand the value and the importance of education. I strongly believe that through the power of education, we have the ability to change not only ourselves, but the path we choose to follow as well. My passion for learning and education in general are as strong as my passion for literature; I believe that literature has the power to help us discover who we are, and that it is through reading and writing that students develop the ability to communicate with the world. While I am on route to becoming a secondary English teacher, I would love to be a part of aiding you in becoming the best that you can be.
As an English major, and a cum laude graduate, I have a vast knowledge of grammar, reading comprehension, spelling, proofreading, writing, and more. Although admittedly this is my first time as a professional tutor, I do contain a vast amount of experience working with kids. I was a volunteer for YMCA where I read to students in the after school program, and I have also volunteered for Seattle's Union Gospel Mission in the YROC program. As a part of the YROC program, we met with students after school, and taught them (as a group) about subjects such as: organization, confidence, self-image, and respect. I also have three years of experience working with students in a martial arts setting; I have led classes for students aged 7-16, and within classes I have helped students perfect their form and master their techniques as well as understand what it means to be a martial artist. I have also recently accepted a job as an instructional assistant at Open Window School and am working primarily with 4th, 5th and 6th grade students as well.
I would design my work to be both challenging and rewarding for the student. Throughout our tutoring sessions, I would keep track of progress and improvement, and assign small assignments that I believe will help them to master the subject.
Currently, because I am taking classes at SPU, I would not be available some nights of the week. However, I am happy to set up a schedule that works for both of us. I also have a 2 hour cancellation policy, but would be happy to schedule makeup classes.
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you improve in your studies.
