About Alicia

I am 37 years old, wife and mother of a teenager. I recently moved to Lake Zurich from Florida and am enjoying the weather here very much! I have three pugs and a yellow labrador whom I love to show off to everyone I meet. I enjoy cooking, reading, and writing in my spare time. I am currently enrolled in a bachelor program of English at Columbia College here in Chicago.

I have experience in private tutoring as well as in the writing center at Florida State College at Jacksonville. I have worked with students of many different backgrounds, educational levels, and ages. I taught preschool for seven years and was the director of a child care center for two, building my knowledge of early education. At the college, I was fortunate enough to work with many students in the English as a Second Language program and absolutely admire the tenacity of those who undertake learning a to use another language fluently.

I have been writing for over 20 years, 15 of which included paid positions. I have written numerous articles and papers for others, working to build a freelance business on my own. For a time I specialized in Search Engine Optimized content for the internet and very much enjoy writing as much as I do teaching.

English has always been my passion! Any part of the subject, from learning the letter sounds to writing that final research paper brings me excitement. I enjoy getting to know my students and finding methods that help them reach their highest potential. I am compassionate and patient with a goal of progress rather than perfection. Asking for help is never easy, but we all have to do it sometimes. I understand how difficult it can be to struggle over a subject, because math is my nemesis. I have spent many nights tearing my own hair out, not understanding an assignment and I believe that makes my English tutoring better. We can work together to become stronger readers, writers and students overall.

Take the stress off of yourself and contact me today! English does not have to make you crazy or lazy. As a team, we can tackle any assignment, any project, any hurdle!!

Approved subjects

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.

English

I have always been interested in English and was a peer tutor in middle and high school. I am currently seeking a bachelor degree with an English major and Literature minor from Columbia College. I have tutored students from preschool to college level privately as well as at Florida State College at Jacksonville as a paid position.

Literature

Literature is my current bachelor degree minor and I spend many days in class analyzing literature. I am familiar with many different genres and have amassed a large collection of books as well. I enjoy reading many types of literature and feel confident discussing it with others.

Writing

Writing has always been my specialty, even as a young teenager. I enjoy writing of many types from essays and research papers, to creative pieces and expository articles. I have tutored writing students from elementary school up through college and worked in a college writing center specifically with remedial classes.
