Bio

Hello! I am a high school English teacher with a B.A. in English Education and two years of classroom experience. I studied at Illinois State University, and did my student teaching at Dwight Township High School. I then taught for two years at LaSalle Township High School. I worked as an after school tutor during this time as well. I absolutely love working with students, but am taking a short break from teaching to stay home with my own kids.

Hello! I am a high school English teacher with a B.A. in English Education and two years of classroom experience. I studied at Illinois State University, and did my student teaching at Dwight Township High School. I then taught for two years at LaSalle Township High School. I worked as an after school tutor during this time as well. I absolutely love working with students, but am taking a short break from teaching to stay home with my own kids. Tutoring allows me to do what I love at the same time, and continue my passion of sharing reading and writing life skills with students. I have grown up in this area, and enjoy riding horses and playing flute in my spare time.

I have an extensive background in writing and literature both throughout my college experience and teaching career. I have taught students from 9th through 12th grade in the classroom, and tutored students from 6th grade to the college post-graduate level. Classes I have taught include speech, Shakespeare, creative writing, and American Literature. I have assisted with teaching Advanced Placement. My tutoring experience is based in writing and grammar. I also have experience working on reading comprehension and preparing students for the SAT. My students have come from diverse backgrounds, from having Spanish as a first language and more. I have enjoyed working with and learning from a wide variety of students. I am also the author or the adventure novel No Matter What and a contributor to the anthology Illinois' Best Emerging Poets.
I meet students where they are and help them to find their own way to build important skills. In tutoring, I like to take a student lead approach in which I guide and facilitate them into finding their own voice in writing and study methods that work best for them. I have assisted students with everything from grammar homework to reading comprehension to college entrance essays.

My hours are extremely flexible both online and in person. I will include a free consultation before beginning sessions upon request. I am open to half hour or hour long sessions and can meet at your home, a public location, or possibly my own home. Though most of my experience is with high school students, I am open to working with junior high students or adults as well. Please contact me for more information and for scheduling. I look forward to working with you!

Knowledgeable and Smart Tutor

Go through writing exercises, and improve grammar. Monica is a smart teacher that knows where you are weak at, and she points out the parts that could be enhanced through the class or offline activities.

Kaiyin, 5 lessons with Monica

Excellent tutor!!

Monica was very helpful and professional. She helped me to proofread my essay, was very punctual and thorough. She just started on this platform but she is very experienced tutor and did an amazing job with my essay. In addition to proofreading she also explained me the rules and logic behind her corrections which I found very helpful. It was a pleasure working with her! I highly recommend her!

Knowledgeable and patent tutor

Monica is a great teacher. She is very patient, resourceful, and fun. We went over my writing together during the class efficiently. She helped raise my awareness of the grammarian mistakes I made. It helps me to identify the errors by myself in the future. It’s very useful. I enjoyed the class.
