About Lydia

Hello! My name is Lydia and I am wrapping up my second year as an English Language Arts (ELA) tutor at Great Oaks Charter School in Bridgeport, CT. As a second-year tutor, I also coach first-year tutors and help establish rules and systems for ELA tutorial. Our student body consists of 215 sixth- and seventh-graders, though it will eventually house grades six through twelve. Every student at Great Oaks has one period of Math tutorial and one period of ELA tutorial Monday through Thursday, in addition to their four core classes. Tutorials are essential to our students' education because they provide individualized instruction tailored to our kids' specific learning needs. I teach five tutorial groups composed of two to four students at approximately equal reading levels. We focus on reading fluency, comprehension, and writing skills.

I love tutoring because it is so exciting to watch my students learn. Great Oaks' mission is to prepare our students for college success, and it is so rewarding to be an integral part of that process. I also love getting to know my students on a personal level, which tutoring in small groups facilitates. I'm thrilled to be staying on at Great Oaks another year to continue building relationships with students and helping them achieve the goal of college readiness.

I have been tutoring Great Oaks for two years, and was rehired for next year. Over the past two years, I have prepared common core-based lessons, implemented two reading programs (Six-Minute Solution and Leveled Literacy Intervention), and watched my students make tremendous strides. I've also been able to assist observe and provide feedback to first-year tutors so that their students could make similar gains.

Please contact me if you're interested in private tutoring this summer!
