Framingham State University (English)
I have spent the past two years since attaining my BA in English from Framingham State University working at a private school. Some of the positions held at this school included third grade Paraprofessional, Librarian, ELA pull-out specialist, and permanent substitute. Aside from working within this school, I have also privately tutored students since December 2014. One of the most important skills I insist upon the children I work with is that they are able to master these lessons and class/homework. After students leave me, they have a new outlook on reading and schoolwork in general. I am a huge believer in positive reinforcement and bringing out the child's confidence regarding schoolwork.
During my time at Framingham State, I have taken many courses focusing on Children's Literature and grammar analysis. In the past, I have specifically worked with children boosting his/her reading skills increasing his/her reading level by several levels. When I was in high school, I studied Latin and even had the opportunity to temporarily teach Latin at a middle school level while that school was searching for a permanent Latin teacher.
I worked as a permanent sub in a first grade classroom where I was teaching children the basic principles of phonetic and phonemic awareness and the breakdown of syllables. While at FSU, I took a phonetics course with a specialist in that field. Recently, I passed my Foundations of Reading MTEL which tests all the principles of phonics and reading.
I believe that my history with Latin gives me strong Spelling qualifications. I have studied root words, word families, and the history of the English Language.
I am a young, dedicated, and energetic teacher/tutor who has a passion for educating students of various ages. I have worked with students from ages 6-12 and would be a great tutor for your child. If you are interested please contact me and I look forward to working with your child boosting his/her confidence regarding school work and academic success!

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.
