About Ivy

I knew teaching was the right career for me the first time I stepped foot in the classroom as an educator. I have spent the last two years honing my skills as an English teacher, and I know that I can students reach their full potential with tutoring. I feel that tutoring is an especially rewarding job because it will allow me to see the direct impact I can have on my students in very personal and immediate manner.

I feel that I am a particularly successful tutor because of the personal commitment I make to each of my students. I specialize in tutoring English Language Arts. I have taught in an English classroom for the last two years, including grammar, reading comprehension, and writing skills. I feel that you will most certainly see your skills improve as I assign reasonable homework assignments and implement lessons that will challenge, but not overwhelm each student. I hold my students to high expectations, but I also believe that learning should be a truly joyful experience.

Although I specialize in English Language Arts, I have tutored Algebra students before and after school for the last three years. I work hard to help students struggling with Algebraic concepts because I have been in the position myself! Every student I have tutored in math has gained the skills to perform to their true potential in math.

I studied English in college, earning a position in the English Honor Society Sigma Tau Delta. I call English my true passion, and I have been lucky enough to exercise this passion in the classroom for the last two years. I feel that my personal enthusiasm for the English language allows my students to really enjoy learning. I have seen countless students turn into avid readers over the years, and I take pride in knowing that there is something in English for every student to enjoy.

I take pride in my ability as a tutor. If after a lesson a student or parent is not satisfied with my tutoring the lesson will not be billed. I enjoy feedback and I want to personalize each lesson to the student's needs and learning styles.

I have a flexible schedule, and although I require a 24 hour cancellation period. I am more than happy to offer makeup classes.

I am happy to travel to any location that the student feels would be the most comfortable. I look forward to hearing from you and creating a plan to help you succeed!
