I am passionate about all things related to literature and language, and to be able to share that love with others is an honor. I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in English Language and Literature with honors and am currently pursuing a graduate degree.
I have tutored students of all ages, from elementary school children to juniors in college, in subjects ranging from library science, ACT preparation, reading comprehension, and writing skills. At university, I took twenty-one hours in Secondary Education; these classes included Literature Study for Teachers, Teaching Writing, and Language Study for Teachers. Not only did these classes instill in me a love for teaching others, they also taught me invaluable advice for reaching students in effective and inspiring ways.
I attended ACT preparation camp in 2011 where I learned priceless test-taking strategies. I made a 30 on the reading section of the ACT and a 34 on the English section. I worked hard for those scores and developed my own strategies in addition to using taught strategies to help me achieve those scores.
Additionally, I have over 500 hours in experience tutoring a wide range of students, varying in age, background, and academic standing.
I believe I have a lot of information and strategies to share with students concerning reading, writing, and test-taking skills, and I can't wait to have an opportunity to do so.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
