About Erin

After receiving my undergraduate degrees in English Literature and Writing, I received a Master's degree in Education, leading to my teaching certification. Over the years, I have taught classes across the following areas: English, reading, writing, creative writing, poetry and fiction. Additionally, I specialize in test preparation for both ACT and SAT.

My nine years of teaching experience across grades 6-12, combined with my passion for growing lifelong learners, makes me a quality tutor. As a professional, I hold myself to a high standard and, therefore, appreciate feedback to continue to grow my own abilities. I believe each student is unique; thus, I do my best to tailor each lesson to match the needs of the student.

The combination of my educational background and hands-on experience leads to my ability to provide high-quality English tutoring. I have a passion for writing and reading and share that with all of my students. Whether delivering grammar lessons or exploring new mediums of writing, my goal for each lesson is to assist students in reaching their highest potential while having fun.

I look forward to the opportunity to tutor you. Please note that I ask or a 12-hour advance notice for all cancellations.

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.

ACT English

For the last 4 years, I have been the head of the Humanities Department in my school network. In this role, I helped over 500 students improve their ACT scores in English and Reading.

Proofreading

I have been a freelance editor for over 10 years, beginning during an internship in college. Not only do I perform freelance editing for undergraduates and graduates, I often help professionals in the health and business sector with editing projects before they submit to Directors/Vice Presidents/CEOs.

Reading

I have been a Secondary teacher for more than 7 years, specializing in standardized test prep help, reading, writing, and proofreading.
