I have been an English teacher for eight years at the high school level. I am also two classes away from finishing my Master's in English, where I will also receive my Certificate in Teaching Writing and Certificate in Teaching Reading. I am a lifelong learner and through my years of working with students, I have developed a passion and a a skill for motivating them to work beyond what they thought they could.
I have taught SAT preparation courses in the past, and I have always worked with my students to help them prepare for the reading comprehension and writing sections of standardized tests such as the ECA. I know it can be overwhelming, and I know tests, and reading and writing in general, can produce anxiety for students and parents alike. I can help students see the process of writing in a new light, and I can help them break down the reading in ways that make comprehension easier. I know many tips to pass along for standardized testing. Mostly. I have a love for all areas of English (even grammar!) that allows me the patience and desire to help others who are struggling. I believe everyone can do well in these areas. Sometimes students just need someone to take time to sit with them one- on-one and help them in a way that maybe a classroom hasn't been able to provide before. I look forward to working with you and your student! I have been an English teacher for eight years at the high school level.

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.
