About Hillary

With a Master's in Education and teaching certifications in High School Social Sciences, Adult Education, and Literacy, I have a strong background in content knowledge and application. I love helping students find deeper meanings by "connecting the dots." To do this, I create meaningful learning experiences by helping students become aware of their own learning styles and strengths... because we all learn differently.

With years of experience teaching Social Studies, English as a Second Language, and Literacy courses for high school students and adults, I am prepared to help you succeed in and out of the classroom. Beyond help with specific content, my tutoring expertise is in reading and comprehension. I can help students expand their reading comprehension through tapping into higher-order thinking skills, such as analysis, evaluation, and synthesis. These skills can allow students to understand ANY text... and be prepared for college!

Additionally, I have tutoring experience in ACT prep for reading. I am a certified Social Sciences teacher and have taught American History, Geography, and World History; along with college-level courses as a Teaching Assistant.

I can help you engage in difficult concepts and help you effectively engage in the content. I look forward to hearing from you!
