Olivet Nazarene University (English Education)
I am about to graduate from Olivet Nazarene University on May 7th. As of May 9th, I will be certified as an English/Language Arts teacher. I have not tutored before, but I have a lot of experience with teaching through my practicum and student teaching that I have just recently completed. I love helping kids get better in their skills, and I absolutely love to teach writing. I feel that writing is such a challenging and time-consuming skill these days, but in the real world, being able to write well is critical. I would love to help prepare the younger generation become better readers, writers, and problem solvers. I care about my students, and it shows through my teaching.
I would make an incredible tutor because, I went to the International English Honor's Society Conference two years in a row. My Literary Theory submissions were accepted, and so I read my papers at this conference two years in a row. This shows my skills and abilities in formal, critical writing. Furthermore, I am a member of the Illinois Reading Council and having the Illinois Reading Conference two years in a row. At these conferences, I go to workshops for three days, learning all sorts of new teaching strategies. Some of the best workshops I have attended have included: working with children with autism, poetry stations, Romeo and Juliet unit, Close Reading strategies, activities for a drama unit, and simply making reading fun and approachable for kids who have not been a fan. Therefore, I know quite a bit about how to make reading and writing more exciting and how to differentiate for students who learn differently.
I will also be graduating with Honor's. I currently have a 3.86 at my university. Overall, I am a very dedicated and driven person by nature; I have always highly valued education. I give 100% in everything I do. Additionally, I have been working with children for a long time. I started out with volunteering in the nursery, babysitting, and then I moved on to become a Day Camp Counselor in high school. I later became a full-time summer counselor at the YMCA for two years in a row. I worked with the 11 and 12 year old group. I am about to graduate from Olivet Nazarene University on May 7th.

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.
