I received my BA in English Studies and Middle School Education from Lesley University in June 2011, and I am licensed by Massachusetts to teach English in grades 5-8. I completed my Masters of Education with a specialization in Learning and Instruction at Northeastern University in 2013. I have implemented lessons in vocabulary, grammar, and literature. I have also become familiar with the EmPower writing program as well as the six traits of writing, offering constructive feedback and modeling writing assignments. I have been tutoring for eight years and have seen students' grades improve in every class: not only English. I help students to develop skills in note-taking, test preparation, organization, writing, reading, and grammar. I enjoy tutoring because I love helping students succeed. My teaching style promotes confidence in students to help them reach their full academic potential.

Reading

I am happy to read books along with students. We will work on developing reading skills by practicing reading aloud and independently. I will also check the student's reading comprehension regularly. We will look into theme, plot, setting, point of view, figurative language, reliable narrators, unfamiliar words, predictions, accessing background knowledge, foreshadowing, and much more.
Spelling,

Spelling

I will work with the student to help them remember spelling rules and reminders that should make the process easier. I will encourage them to try writing independently rather than using spell-check. By seeing which words the student struggles with, I should be able to find a pattern and develop strategies to help the student overcome their struggle with spelling.
