My passion for education helps fuel my desire to help students perfect their individual learning styles. Presenting any given material in such a way that enables a student's specific learning abilities to shine is very important to me in my teachings. Everyone studies differently and everyone has their own set of unique strengths and weaknesses when it comes to understanding a subject area. It is my job as your tutor to search, identify and target your specific needs.
I truly enjoy reading, writing, and analyzing text in a number of different materials. This is why I became a teacher in secondary English (grades 6-12), receiving a 4.0 average while in graduate school.
Student teaching and becoming a substitute in the middle school and high school grade levels helped my teaching abilities to reach new heights. Learning happens everyday and not just in your typical classroom setting. At one time I owned and ran my very own nursery which produced and sold annuals, perennials, fruits, vegetables, and garden supplies. Inviting inner city students to my farm to explain what a beneficial bug was to a tomato plant or the importance of planting and harvesting your very own organic garden were just a few of the ideas that I taught students. Introducing new material, new experiences, and new ideas into a child's mind holds the title to the best feeling I have ever felt.
I specialize in reading, analyzing literature, writing, vocabulary, understanding and writing poetry, and preparing for SAT tests concerning English material.
I am a caring, understanding, patient, and encouraging individual who would love to instill lifelong learning skills into yourself or your child. Every child should feel confident in their schooling abilities, especially in reading and writing which is crucial in all subject areas.

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.
