Bio

Hello!

I'm currently enrolled in the Lesley University School of Education, pursuing an M.Ed with initial licensure in teaching English 8-12, and will also get a license to teach 5-7 as part of that same process. I already hold preliminary licensure to teach grades 5-12, and I expect to complete my program May 2014.

Hello!

I'm currently enrolled in the Lesley University School of Education, pursuing an M.Ed with initial licensure in teaching English 8-12, and will also get a license to teach 5-7 as part of that same process. I already hold preliminary licensure to teach grades 5-12, and I expect to complete my program May 2014.

I spend my summers working as a day camp counselor in the School's Out program through the Beverly, MA school district. School's Out is comprised of 8 staff working with 23 students (most with Aspergers) to help develop social and emotional skills. Time in the program is split between in classroom curriculum and field trips to public spaces around the Greater Boston area. In the offseason I do some 1-on-1 mentoring with some of these same young people.

I spent 2 days per week this past semester student teaching in an 8th grade classroom at Fuller Middle School in Framingham, MA. I am currently working as a substitute teacher in all content areas in Boston and Salem.

In addition to the M.Ed I'm working on, I have an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College, and a BA in English from Skidmore College. I also manage a book-focused website and short-run literary magazine publishing press in my spare time. I read constantly and avidly, both published books and unpublished writing for edit.

I'm comfortable and capable working with children and teens, having grown up and worked at a summer camp in New Hampshire, as well as worked in the past as a ski instructor and coach of a high school racing team. I will be coaching again, in Haverhill, this winter.

I'm a friendly and easy going tutor, who prides himself on his rapport with students. I look forward to working with your family.
