About Betsy

My interest in tutoring comes from a real passion for leading students to their fullest potential, utilizing positive guidance and facilitated dialogue. I empower my students to discover their own love of learning, in order to establish lifelong habits and healthy curiosity!

I am a graduate level student simultaneously finishing my Masters Degree and working as a Training Director at Northeastern University. I have experience as a professor, academic trainer, and copy editor, both at Northeastern and at MIT. My personal teaching philosophy follows a constructivist approach, and I employ Socratic 'question and answer' teaching methods to allow students the space to find their own answers. In this style students are appropriately challenged and become confident in their ability to learn, and not simply memorize lectures.

I have a strong background in elementary, high school, and college education and training, with expertise in adult learning and college level advising. As a Masters student I write and research on public policy, and as a professor I served as a resource for undergraduate students around lesson planning, academic writing, and professional development.

Starting as an AP English student in high school, I have always been a strong writer and resource for peers, editing papers throughout college while I pursued my humanities degree. After college I gained professional experience at MIT as a copyeditor for an international academic, skills I now utilize in my position at Northeastern University. My career is in facilitating public trainings, and I have strong expertise in public speaking for diverse audiences, from professional athletes to college freshmen. I am also in charge of all academic writing and editing at my job, and have worked as a professor for university students.

I look forward to hearing from you and working together on your personal learning goals!

Approved subjects

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.

Public Speaking

Hello, my public speaking training is from my job as a professional facilitator and trainer. I am currently a Director of Training at Northeastern University, where I conduct public speaking and facilitation trainings in Boston and around the country. As part of my graduate degree I have also delivered public presentations, for professionals and academics in Boston and Washington DC. Finally, I was an adjunct professor for two semesters at Northeastern University, teaching facilitation and training courses for undergraduate students.

Writing

I am qualified with a 100% score on the WyzAnt writing test.
