Dominican University (Communications)
National-Louis University (Graduate Coursework)
As the Literacy Center Resource person at Lake Zurich High School, I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of communication. I love grammar and have been a Copywriter for many years. I have a B.A. from Dominican University in Communications and I am happy to tutor your children from 1st-12th grade with English and the writing of papers. Although I am rather new to Wyzant, I have tutored 6 students that have heard about me in our area and I have experience with tutoring Reading and English. I have a substitute teaching certificate.
I can assist your struggling student or help your high-achieving child, as well. One of my clients is a Mensa-level 10 year old. I like to spend our first session discovering where your student is struggling (if you are not completely sure) so I can cater our future sessions to the student's needs. I can assure you that I will connect well from the first session with your child, as it is normal for the child to be initially resistant to tutoring.I am also very involved in a teen program outside of school and take a lot of pride in the fact that I connect well and understand children, from young to older. I am willing to come to your home (if there is a quiet space) or meet at a library in a quiet and private study room. I am free from 4pm on during the school year. I am off in the summer and have great flexibility with my time. This summer, I am scheduling day sessions and would love to meet your child! Hello!

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.

Catholicism is the faith I know and teach to grammar and high school students. I am capable of teaching Catholic education in lieu of your formal Religious Education class (with approval from your parish) so that your child may complete their Sacraments. I have taught most grades and am very familiar with the doctrine of the Catholic faith, all the way through Confirmation.
