About Miranda

Hello! I am an MFA Writing graduate with experience working with diverse groups of children and adults. I currently teach college ESL, Composition and Research Writing as well as small-group ESL workshops. I have worked with children as a substitute teacher throughout Chicagoland and held a long-term subbing position as a reading specialist teacher. I have tutored subjects from reading and writing to elementary science and math. I volunteer as a creative writing instructor, leading children through the process of story and poem writing. I find that practicing creative writing is a great way to improve writing and reading skills that carry through to their more academic writing!

I specialize in reading and writing, though I am great at helping younger students with math, science, social studies etc. as well as general study skills. I am a patient tutor who is great at meeting students where they are and discovering how a particular student learns and works best. I find creative ways to make work more engaging and fun!
