My name is Lana, and I am a certified Middle School ELA teacher currently looking to tutor students in Reading, Literature, and/ or Writing. I have 9 years of teaching experience in local public schools, mainly with 6th and 8th graders. I am familiar with state and national education standards such as Common Core and PARCC. I am organized and genuinely enjoy working with teenagers.
Some of my strengths as a teacher include being able to-- explain topics in engaging ways (videos, discussions, etc.), give students authentic feedback to improve their writing, and build excitement for reading both fiction and nonfiction. I am adaptable and flexible and would love to work with a family who values providing the best education for their child(ren). I am excited to start this new venture and look forward to connecting with you soon! Dear families:

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.
