About Stefanie

Teaching has always been a passion of mine. I fell in love with literature in college and have shared my passion with students in grades 7-12 over the past three years. I have found unique and engaging ways to encourage student-engagement with positive outcomes. Students have increased their personal levels of reading comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. I love watching students connect with literature. Once that connection is made, the possibilities are endless!

In college, I studied English literature with a focus on Shakespeare. During my teaching, I have taught rigorous curriculums on Lord of the Flies, The Great Gatsby, The Outsiders, Night, Seedfolks, Edgar Allan Poe, Romeo & Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. With each curriculum, I have embedded vocabulary, grammar, writing and comprehension. I have also taught an Expository Writing course to high school seniors. With the writing course, I have helped students prepare for the SAT and college applications. Recently, I helped my students prepare for the Smarter Balanced Assessment through responding to text-based questions and writing timed performance tasks.

I hope I can help you succeed in achieving your future goals! Please contact me for your English-Language Arts needs!

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.

Literature

I have a Bachelors degree in English from the University of Connecticut. I have been an ELA teacher for the past 3 years. I focus on teaching my students how to critically analyze literature. I have taught novels such as, The Outsiders, Lord of the Flies, To Kill A Mockingbird, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Night.

Proofreading

I have a Bachelors Degree in English from the University of Connecticut where I took multiple classes on writing composition. I have been a writing teacher for the past 3 years to middle school students. I teach writing daily and help students correct punctuation and grammatical errors . I also teach students proofreading tactics. I act as an editor-in-chief for the students in my classroom. I help them expand their ideas and make their writing even better.

Reading

I have a Bachelors degree in English from the University of Connecticut. I have been an ELA teacher for the past 3 years. For the past two years, I have also been a summer school literacy teacher for students struggling with reading. I was responsible for progress monitoring my students in fluency and comprehension. I helped 6th grade students reach 150 words per minute and increase their Aimsweb Maze scores to between 20-30 correct. I taught students strategies to increase their reading speed, and helped other students in small groups to improve their comprehension.

Vocabulary

I have a Bachelors degree in English from the University of Connecticut. I have been an ELA teacher for the past 3 years. I focus on teaching my students how to critically analyze literature. I have taught multiple novels that require students to learn vocabulary acquisition. With each novel, I incorporate vocabulary instruction and integrate vocabulary comprehension activities. Students learn the connotation and denotation of words. They are taught to use close reading strategies to define the terms contextually.

Writing

I have taught writing for the past 3 years as a middle school English teacher. I teach writing consistently and help students correct punctuation and grammatical errors daily. I have taught my students how to create narrative, persuasive, argumentative, informative and research papers.
