About Miriam

I have loved reading and writing since the age of 3, so it was only to be expected that I became an English teacher! I have a BA in creative writing and anthropology, and I have a Master's in Education, as well. I currently teach English at the high school level. I have five years of teaching experience, a current teaching certificate, and lots of tricks up my sleeve to help my students understand the content of an English class. I enjoy teaching both reading and writing, and I know how to make them make sense to students at the secondary level (grades 7-12), and college-level or adult students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I am a certified English teacher. I teach at the high school level, but I am versatile and able to tutor students of any age.

Literature

Even before I became an English teacher, reading was my passion. I have read a ridiculous amount of books in my lifetime. I am well-versed in how stories work and function, and I can analyze one to pieces. I also thoroughly enjoy teaching students that skill!

Proofreading

I had an editing business for about two years before I became an English teacher. I can catch nearly any grammar, spelling, or usage mistake. I can also make suggestions for improvement based not only on conventions, but also on syntax and content.

Reading

I have been reading since age 3. It has been one of my passions for my entire life, and it is the main reason why I became an English teacher. I can teach the skill of literary analysis because I do it in my sleep!

SAT Writing

I have five years of secondary English teaching experience under my belt, and I know what a good essay looks like. I am very confident in my ability to help students understand the structure, organization, and content necessary to write a clear, on-topic, and well-thought-out essay for the SAT.

Vocabulary

Because I have been reading for 25 years, and teaching English for five years, I have a large and varied vocabulary. I'm also not afraid to look up and use new words! Vocabulary is a natural extension of English instruction, and I can definitely tutor someone in it!

Writing

I teach writing in some way every single school day. I can focus on little pieces of a writing until students understand the whole, or teach the larger picture of writing and then break it down into small pieces.
