Brigham Young University (English Education)
I am a certified English teacher with significant experience tutoring one-on-one. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in English Education. As an undergraduate, I worked for five semesters as a writing tutor and, in this capacity, was awarded BYU Writing Fellow of the Year. In addition to one-on-one tutoring experience, I taught high school English for five years--one year in Utah and four years in New York. I am now a stay-at-home mom who tutors as a part-time job. I have worked with all levels of learners, from special education students to honors students.
I offer students the following services: assistance with college and scholarship application essays (I specialize in memorable, creative essays); individualized feedback on written assignments for high school or college courses; tutoring for high school students who are struggling with their English classes (I am widely familiar with the novels and curriculum, as I have instructed 10th, 11th, and 12th grades); SAT Prep for Reading and Writing (I taught the English portion of an SAT Prep course at a NY high school); and general reading and writing tutoring for students at any grade level who are interested in improving their skills.

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.
