Manhattanville College (English Writing)
Manhattanville College (Master's)
I found tutoring at my first teaching job and I fell in love with helping students in a one on one setting. Teaching is rewarding but I could never get as much accomplished with a full class as I could with tutoring. I found that in my 4 years I tutored I saw my students change and improve so much.
I've now been teaching for 9 years and I still use the strategies I used with some of those previous tutoring students in my busy classroom of 26 active 5th graders. As a teacher, sometimes that one student can be the most inspiring to you.
I received my undergraduate degree in writing and I took my SAT II in writing (prior to the SAT writing being on the test) and scored over 725 out of 800. I currently am the lead literacy teacher at my school and I am constantly learning new trends to help students learn to be better writers. I am constantly working on writing with my own students daily and feel this is an art we all must improve because in all occupations people must be able to communicate in written form.
I have worked with both upper elementary as well as lower elementary students. I love working with students who need extra help in a subject. I set goals with my students and use various strategies in order to help my students achieve success.

CT certified in elementary education with 9 years experience. 4 years of tutoring experience.
I have used many reading strategies to help struggling readers over the years. My goal always is to help make a student fall in love with reading. I never want a tutoring session for reading to be something a child dreads. I like to find reading material that a child will find interesting and engaging and hopefully from there that child will find the joy in reading.
I took my SAT II's in writing and scored very high. I can use my own test taking strategies to help others. I went on to study English writing in college and have a firm sense of grammar rules that are needed for this portion of the test.
I have four years' tutoring experience helping students with study skills. I worked with both elementary and high school students to prepare for tests as well as doing daily homework. I also am able to help students learn organizational skills.
My bachelors degree is in writing. I have also taken post graduate classes in writing education. I have tutored many students in this area over the years from elementary age to high school and even have helped college students. In my work I am teacher that other teachers look to for help with the teaching of writing in their classrooms.
