University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (English)
Since elementary school, I have taken a liking to the English language arts. I was initially drawn to this subject area when I realized that my skills in it came to me naturally. However, I am no stranger to the difficulty of learning something that does not click right away. For this reason, I love teaching students who find English concepts to be particularly challenging. Through my easy-going communication skills and willingness to be thorough when breaking down an idea, no concept will be impossible for a student to master, whether it be grammar or reading comprehension.
I recently graduated from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Education. I am currently employed as the English Doctor in suburban Oak Forest, Illinois, where I tutor students at all skill levels and grade ACT preparation essays. Although my discipline is in English, I also have an interest in and grasp on the Social Sciences, so I also grade DBQ (Document-Based Question) analysis essays. I have taken advanced level Social Sciences classes at the collegiate level, and I am on my way to being endorsed as an educator in this area.
Although I am currently occupied during the day (8:00 - 3:45), I am flexible with my evening and weekend hours. During the summer, I will be available most hours of the day. If you must cancel a lesson, I simply ask that you let me know 24 hours in advance, and we can reschedule.
I hope to hear from you soon and provide you some clear, comprehensive assistance in your studies! Since elementary school, I have taken a liking to the English language arts.
