Need help with English and/or math? I'd love to work with you. I have tutored students in English (ESL, grammar, and writing) and math, and I work with students in school settings on a daily basis. After majoring in English and Secondary Education, I student taught and have been substitute teaching for seven years. A few of my favorite things about both tutoring and teaching have been helping students understand literature, improve their writing, or overcome difficult math problems. I enjoy working with students to help them meet their goals. Students, colleagues, and friends have described me as a peaceful and encouraging person (good qualities for test prep). I have a year of experience in special education, so I'm happy to help with special needs (ADD, ADHD, autism, OCD, etc.). I have worked with people of all ages: elementary through adult.

When we meet for tutoring, our first step is to set goals: what are you hoping to achieve? If applicable, I can design a pre-assessment for you so we can measure your progress. Then we'll work on practicing the skills you need to be successful. This could be your homework, practice test questions, or an essay you're writing. When we initially meet, I'll ask whether you have your own practice questions to use or if you need me to bring them for you. I enjoy explaining concepts and giving examples, and I often use a question-based, interactive approach so that we can have a conversation about the subject matter. As I work with you, I'll target the concepts and skills that are most difficult for you so that your time is spent efficiently.

I often substitute for math teachers and scored a 660/800 on the math portion of the SAT (previous version). I make math interesting and less intimidating! I'm also great at breaking down the steps of writing an essay and explaining how grammar works. I scored a 740/800 on the verbal portion of the SAT. Beyond majoring in English and teaching at the high school level, I enjoy reading in my free time.

Please let me know if I can help you with your math and English goals-- I'd love to work with you to get through a difficult class, write an essay, or prepare for a test.
