Hello! My name is Mike D., and over my years working in education I have provided individualized reading and writing instruction to students from pre-K to college, and everything in between!

I would love to help your student with any and all reading comprehension, writing composition, grammatical, or essay-based challenges. Over my years working in education, I have found that genuine learning most often happens when individualized tutoring is a component of the student's education. This is important, not only because education is in and of itself valuable, but because so many students (regardless of their age) need that feeling of self-assurance that is so crucial for developing a genuine interest in learning. Tutoring provides the student with the maximum opportunity to experience that moment when something just *clicks*, and they begin to develop the confidence and self-esteem that all students deserve.

My years of experience providing personalized writing assistance to both undergraduate and graduate students, both in classroom and individualized settings, makes me well suited to tutor students of all ages. As a recent graduate of a Masters program at SAIC, I amassed countless hours copy-editing and proofing the work of my peers. During this time, I also worked as an undergraduate teaching assistant. It was my responsibility to help students develop their final papers, helping them to articulate both to me and to themselves what exactly it was they wanted to express about the class material.

Aside from my experience tutoring college-age students, I also have years of experience teaching pre-K and elementary school children. At a Jewish Community Center in Chicago, I was a lead teacher, responsible for thirteen 2-3-year-old children. This position helped me to develop the social and emotional intelligence necessary to effectively tutor students of all ages. I also have experience teaching elementary school students, having been a teacher's assistant in second, third, and fourth grade classrooms.

I hope my past work experience demonstrates my genuine passion for teaching. I recognize that each student is different, and I am more than happy to continually collaborate with you and the student on an individualized tutoring method that compliments the unique way they learn. I hope to hear from you soon!
