I have an engaging, compassionate, and patient tutoring style, and I believe that building confidence and improving skills is possible for any student.
I have a substantial amount of experience helping students write and revise papers of all kinds, from elementary school to college-level work. I love writing, and I can help take the intimidation factor out of writing papers, whether long or short. I can help to demystify grammar and help students build confidence in their ability to express themselves in writing.
My experience also includes tutoring geometry, algebra, and English literature. I have tutored ESL for adults and led workshops for college freshman writing classes.
Learning is an ongoing process, and each person’s experience is unique. I can design personalized lessons based on individual students’ needs and objectives, or I can simply offer help with homework and other assignments as needed. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!
I am new to the Lawrence, KS area, and I will be available to meet with new students starting around March 15th! I am located within easy walking distance of Cordley Elementary School and Lawrence High.
My educational background:
I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a B.A. in English and a minor in Writing. In addition to the usual coursework in literature and writing, I have taken many courses in creative writing. As a result, I am able to bring an element of spontaneity and enjoyment to my tutoring that helps to decrease stress and make learning more fun.
Study skills and time management are essential to finding success. I can offer a variety of techniques to help with organization and time management, and I specialize in managing procrastination.
I try to be flexible with time, and I am available at a variety of day, evening, and weekend times. I ask that if you must cancel or reschedule a tutoring appointment for a non-emergency, you do so at least 24 hours in advance.
I am available between sessions for email correspondence.
It is important to find a good fit when looking for a tutor, so I offer a free initial consultation meeting to find out if we are a good match, and to assess your initial goals and concerns.
