About Meredith

I believe that every child is a unique individual with momentous potential. In order to mature emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically they must be provided with a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere. As an educator it is my desire to promote a tutoring environment that is safe, supportive and welcoming, pushing my students to their fullest potential. In order to establish an environment conducive to this learning, I believe the tutor must act as a mentor, and students must be encouraged to explore their natural curiosities.

I have tutored in various environments including elementary and middle schools as well as in hospitals and after school programs. I love tutoring because I'm able to make learning fun for students who more often than not, aren't excited to learn because of the struggles they have in the classroom.

I studied English at the University of Michigan during graduate school and hope to help you improve your grammar, reading, writing and proofreading skills.

I am a certified K-6th teacher in both Illinois as well as Michigan. I have taught in a variety of different elementary schools and with a number of different age levels.

Contact me today and get all the tools and confidence you need to be a successful student now! I look forward to hearing from you soon!


Testimonial:

"Meredith was very quick to respond to my emails, and we quickly had a first session scheduled. We are so happy we found Meredith. She took the time to understand my daughter's tutoring needs and goals while also offering tips throughout our time working with her. She was able to explain things in a way my daughter could understand. Meredith was great at letting me know my daughters strengths and what we needed to work on as well as some things I could do to help at home. She by far exceeded our highest hopes and we look forward to working with her in the future!" -Mother of Student
