Hello,

My name is Haleigh, and I'm a tutor living in Chicago. I've had a lot of experience helping people with their writing and reading skills, and I'd like to help you, too.

I’ve worked as a tutor in various volunteer programs and in my free time since high school, and it’s made me a very patient person. In college, I worked as the head of our student-run newspaper. Although it wasn’t in my job description, I worked one-on-one with students struggling with writing journalism, turning newbies into editors in only a few months. It was a challenge for both parties, but patience and laughter go a long way. I quickly learned that although the professors at my school were talented and intelligent, they didn't have time to spend with every student, and some very bright kids can ended up falling through the cracks.

After graduation, I took on my first private student: an 11-year-old boy who loved science and hated reading and writing. Although he's really smart, he was quickly getting bored in his writing classes, and when he came home with a D on his report card, his dad knew he needed help. Within just a few months, his D grew into an A, and he's been writing fiction - when we're done talking about his schoolwork, we talk about his superhero story.

I still work with him today, and his interest and ease with writing has become his strong suite. For his required journal entries, I ask him to write about what he likes, and we worked on his grammar, structure, and comprehension. He reads everything back to me, and together, we find all the frayed edges that he cleans up to form really solid pieces. At the age of 11, I feel like he's becoming a better writer than I was!

When I tutor, I get to know a person first, but I really believe everyone has good ideas and natural reasoning ingrained in them. Everyone's going to need a different approach, but all they need is the confidence and time to find it.

Thanks for your consideration, and I hope I can help!
