About Stacy


Bio

I tutor English and anything related to English. I currently have a MS in library and information science and a BA in English (Linguistics), so I love anything to do with reading and the English language. I have taught high school and junior high English as well as been an elementary school library media specialist.

As much as I love to read, I have a passion for writing and that passion shows when I help others. Many of my teachers have told me I have a knack for writing and teaching...

I tutor English and anything related to English. I currently have a MS in library and information science and a BA in English (Linguistics), so I love anything to do with reading and the English language. I have taught high school and junior high English as well as been an elementary school library media specialist.

As much as I love to read, I have a passion for writing and that passion shows when I help others. Many of my teachers have told me I have a knack for writing and teaching others how to write well. When I was an undergrad, I tutored writing during my four years at ASU and loved it. During that time, I provided one-on-one and group tutoring in writing skills. I am also very familiar with MLA, APA, and Chicago writing styles. My students as well as many professors gave me positive reviews.

Excellent tutor

Our son took his SAT exam and scored 1030. We scheduled him to take another and Stacy helped him get ready for the exam. We just got his results and they are 1240 which has made the needed difference in his University application. Stacy made all the difference in preparing our son for his SAT. I would definitely recommend her!

Ian, 5 lessons with Stacy

Very knowledgeable

Stacy is very knowledgeable on writing a research paper. She answered the many questions I had on the 'how to' and where to find information and material needed to fulfill the assignment(s). Even though I didn't completely understand how to it all, she reassured me of being available to answer any future questions and concerns that may arise. She didn't seem to mind that I didn't 'get it' all. She's worth the money!!

Awesome tutor

Stacy is an amazing tutor! She is patient, knowledgeable and comes to lessons well prepared. She is courteous and easy to get along with. Stacy takes the time to go over what she taught my son after each lesson and as a parent I really appreciate her letting me know what she is teaching my son. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good English tutor.
