I have experience tutoring English, reading comprehension, and writing for students from beginning readers to adult students. I have also assisted students in preparing for the English, Reading, and Writing sections of the SAT/ACT exam, and have helped students perfect their essays for college applications. I'm a professional fiction writer with a degree in Creative Writing and Critique, and am working towards becoming a writing instructor. I have always done well academically, enjoy helping others learn and grow, and love working with kids.

I believe in taking an individualized approach to learning, in accessing each student's strengths and areas needing improvement in order to comprehensively expand their reading and writing skills.

For two years I participated in Reading Partners, a tutoring program for beginning to intermediate readers in elementary school. The tutors worked one-on-one with students to help them improve their fluency, vocabulary, word recognition, and reading comprehension. Last year the student I worked with tested above grade level and no longer needs to be in the program; I miss working with her but am very proud of her accomplishments!

I'm also available to tutor adult students in subjects such as ESL, English, Literature, Essay Writing, Creative Writing, and Technical Writing, and in computer skills such as Web Design, Graphic Design, and Photoshop, with 8+ years experience in the interactive design industry.
