About Lucy

Hi, my name is Lucy. I graduated from Loyola University Chicago in May 2013 with a bachelor's degree in English: Creative Writing and a Bachelor's degree in social work. I was a volunteer tutor for elementary school students in the Inspired Youth tutoring program. I tutored 1-4th graders in math, English, science, phonics and reading comprehension. I also worked for two years as an after school supervisor, where I helped with homework/studying strategies for students in 1-5th grade.
I am passionate about literature and creative writing. I excel at helping students comprehend literature through practicing close reading. I work well with younger children and try to take creative approaches to teaching and tutoring. I am very organized and help students with study skills, note taking, and homework strategy.
In the fall I will begin a masters program for social work at the University Illinois Chicago. I believe my experience in social work helps me to work closely with students and respond to their particular challenges and needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I have experience working with students with ADD/ADHD at my previous job as an after school supervisor. I helped these students organize their work, study, and complete various homework assignments. As a tutor I make sure to break down work so that it does not become overwhelming for students so that they can complete tasks. I also have my bachelor's in social work and have had many different case management positions working with and understanding the needs of individuals.

Reading

I majored in English: Creative Writing at Loyola University Chicago, where I studied literature, poetry writing and fiction writing. I won the Frank C Lawler poetry award in 2012 and 2013 and have been published in Loyola's literary magazine, Diminuendo. My love of literature encouraged me to volunteer at Inspired Tutoring where I tutored students in phonics and reading skills. I also worked with students on spelling and vocabulary. As an after school supervisor at Sacred Heart I also tutored older students in reading, phonics, spelling and vocabulary. I love reading and working with students.

Study Skills

I have experience in helping students study. As an after school supervisor I spent a lot of our homework hour helping students organize notes, review flashcards, highlight important passages, and review study sheets. I often review old homework and test sheets with students, as well. I also encourage students to break down studying into different sections so that they do not become overwhelmed.
