About Erica

Hello and thank you for considering me as your and/or your student's tutor! My name is Erica, and I have been working in the education field for the past eight years. I began teaching at academic discipline-based, Harry Potter camps, where I facilitated history, plant science, cooking, and writing classes with students ranging from 4 years old to adult in Illinois and Pennsylvania. After studying and earning my B.A. in English Education at Northern Illinois University, I worked in public schools as a middle school Language Arts teacher and high school American Literature teacher. My time spent in the school district also included after-school tutoring in multiple subjects including Algebra, American History, and Environmental Science.

My last full-time teaching position was at Elgin Community College where I taught developmental composition, English Composition I, and English Composition II. There I collaborated on rewriting curriculum and placement standards as well as participated in the development of an accelerated learned program aimed towards students who required support in removing mental blocks to writing.

I work well with most students, though I have a gift of reaching those with negative beliefs about themselves and/or the subject. We will only go as far as we believe we can go and no further, until, of course, we believe differently.
