About Erin


Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring for 12 years. While I like being in the classroom, I really prefer the one-on-one or small group environment. I have taught French, English, AP prep, and SAT/ACT/CAHSEE prep. Writing is my favorite subject to tutor and I think it is such a crucial form of expression.

I lived and studied abroad in France, and have traveled to more than 27 countries around the world.

Elementary (K-6th)

While my teaching credential is for grades 6-12, I regularly tutor elementary school students to help with homework, particularly reading and math. My Master's degree is in Language Arts and Reading, so my coursework was with primarily elementary school teachers learning how to teach kids to read and write. I believe this informs my work as a Foreign Language teacher, but also allows me to understand the needs of younger students. Having six younger brothers and sisters probably also adds to my comfortability with tutoring younger students.

Understanding, Educated, Efficient Tutor

I recently started sessions with Erin, and so far they've been great! I'm not a good writer but since getting help from Erin I feel a lot more confident with what I write. She's actually takes her time to listen to what you have to say , and she easily understands what your trying to get at. She's very nice and easy to work with, highly recommend!

Knowledgeable, Efficient, and Highly Recommended

Erin is clearly very knowledgeable when it comes to writing. She has given my daughter the tools and confidence she needed to help her really improve her writing skills. My daughter says that she is easy to talk to and is very encouraging! She was afraid of being criticized, as English is not her strong suit, but this was not the case at all. She looks forward to her sessions as the essays have improved so much. We especially appreciated how quickly she was able to correspond and work with us. My daughter was able to communicate with Erin through FaceTime, which she really enjoyed. My daughter and I have been more than pleased with all of her help and would recommend her to anyone looking for some great help from a very friendly person.
