My name is Heather, and I'm an experienced and personable tutor for a range of subjects. I have worked with students of all ages, as a homework help afficionado at an after-school program, a nature instructor, and as a substitute teacher. I'm a master proofreader who can help you make your papers shine, and I got a perfect verbal score on the SAT - twice! My main subjects are writing, proofreading, reading, and grammar; I earned a minor in writing in college, and like to keep those skills in practice. I am also experienced in working with elementary school students in math, reading, social studies, and science.
I recognize that everyone learns differently, and I will work with you to make sure my lessons fit your needs. My goal is to help you find solutions on your own. Most importantly, I am enthusiastic, endlessly patient, and love nothing more than making a concept click for you.
For the last two years I worked at an after school program, where I helped elementary students of all grade levels with their homework every day. In addition to homework help, I found and created worksheets and extra exercises for the kids in our program to further practice their skills. I find great joy in guiding kids to find the answers for themselves, whether we're reading, studying state capitals, or doing long division. Before working at an after school program, I taught at a nature center, and engaged kids in the natural sciences through hands-on experiences and enthusiasm for learning. I bring these skills to all subjects, along with endless patience and a sense of fun.
I earned a minor in Writing from UMBC, and I am particularly experienced in creative nonfiction and research papers. I have written and proofread extensively using MLA format, as well as the Chicago Manual of Style. As an administrative support staff member I have used my proofreading skills in numerous professional environments, and as a childcare worker I am experienced in providing writing help to a range of grade levels. I continue to practice writing in my spare time, and even volunteer to help friends edit their work, as it is something I enjoy doing!
