About Hillary

Hello! My name is Hillary, and I am a professional English tutor! I graduated from the University of Rochester with a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature with an emphasis in Creative Writing. Writing and Dance are my passions, and I truly enjoy working with children in ways that foster creativity and self-expression. I firmly believe in having a growth mindset and encouraging students to believe in themselves and work hard toward their academic goals.

My top subjects are English and Writing, SAT/ACT Reading and Grammar prep, and Spanish. I've been studying the Spanish language all my life, and advanced my studies in college. I can tutor students in proper Spanish grammar as well as conversational Spanish. I am a professional SAT/ACT English prep tutor, and I have extensive experience tutoring students of all ages in English. I can guide students in what strategies to take for each test as well as tutor grammar and writing rules that students need to master. I work extensively on essay writing and creative fiction and non-fiction as well as grammar and advanced reading comprehension. I teach literature analysis as well.

I have plenty of background experience in supporting students of all ages in their academic needs. In 2009, I was an Assistant Teacher for a variety of elementary school aged children in a Creative Writing class. During the 2014-2015 school year, I tutored in a middle school with City Year Los Angeles, under AmeriCorps. I worked extensively with 8th graders in this setting, providing academic coaching in class as well as homework help after school. I'm experienced in creating fun and engaging lesson plans for math and ELA material for elementary and middle school students. Currently, I provide advanced SAT/ACT preparation tutoring for middle and high school students as well as grade level English tutoring for students of various ages between 5 and 18.

Feel free to contact me! I can meet your availability needs and answer any questions you may have.

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.

Sign Language

I studied Sign Language as a cluster concentration in college. I am educated up to Intermediate II, and have conversational experience from ASL clubs and class events throughout my undergraduate career.

Writing

I am a professional English tutor and I work on writing with a full range of students grades K-12. I assist in essay writing for standardized tests as well as school assignments. I have a Bachelor's degree in English literature and Creative Writing and am a writer myself.
