About Wendy

I have an M.A. in English and have won an award ("Teacher of the Year") for my teaching English grammar, punctuation, writing, reading, vocabulary, and spelling.

My main focus is elementary and junior high students, for whom I've developed a series of Common Core rubrics (assessments). The first meeting with me is free and includes the Common Core rubric for your child's grade and a sample lesson plan.

Most importantly, I love tutoring this age range and am known for my empathy and expertise with students that represent diverse backgrounds.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
