About Teri

Hello! My name is Teri and I've been working with teenagers for 11 years! I have a BA in English Education and an MA in Child and Adolescent Literacy. I love working with young people who want to improve their reading and writing skills. I use a variety of techniques to practice reading comprehension, vocabulary memorization and use, critical thinking, and writing.

Aside from my interests as a professional, I love dancing, hanging out with my friends, and trying out new recipes. My students would describe me as passionate about English and creative. They would also tell you that they know what to expect from me and they know what I expect of them!

I have a minor in Spanish and speak it proficiently. I use my background in linguistics to help students understand the grammar and structure of the language. I have also lived in Spain and Venezuela, and have spent time in Mexico and Peru, so I have a working understanding of the language.

As a high school English teacher, I have worked with students of all reading and writing levels. I know how to cater to a students' individual learning needs and have an arsenal of activities and strategies to use!

Do you think we would be a good match? I would love to hear from you! Feel free to contact me and tell me about yourself. What are your academic goals? What kind of activities help you learn the best? What is your favorite kind of cookie?
