About Rae

Dear Prospective Students,

My name is Rae. It's nice to e-meet you. A few categories I have experience in (but not limited to) are as follows: Public Speaking, Research, Writing, Editing, Elementary/High School/College English, Elementary/ High School/College History, European/African-American/Afro-Caribbean Literature etc.

Currently, I am an associate editor for a consumer magazine, Consumers Digest. In this role, I am solely responsible for the research, writing and editing of 41 stories for 5 sections in the magazine. My favorite subjects in school were English and History. I specifically enjoy 16th century French history. I love tutoring to learn from my students and see them excel in their courses.

Previously I reviewed and copy-edited (check for grammar, structure etc) 10 contributing writers and 3 student workers as the editor of chief of DePaul University's Modern Language department newsletter. I assisted the writers in structuring sentences and paragraphs, writing concise and descriptive content and incorporate research into and informative online articles.

My personal approach to teaching is hands-on. For example (for writing tutoring) I will give my critique of the students first attempt and next we will go over each paragraph and work through each sentence to evaluate how they tie into the overall theme or thesis. I enjoy a collaborative environment, thus, I will ask how much the student understands the assignment, their opinion on how well their paper ties into the assignment and how they want to approach the second or third draft that fits their learning style.

Any students looking for assistance with their English, Literature, History or Communication courses, please contact me.

Looking forward to working with you!

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.

Cello

I have played cello for 15 years. I majored in music performance in high school (Lincoln Park) and in undergrad (Illinois State). I have tutored children from ages 4 to 18 in cello and ensemble for six years at Apostolic Church of God's Youth Strings and Wings program. References are available upon request.
