Bio

I am a highly motivated, dedicated, enthusiastic and experienced teacher who has nearly ten years of experience teaching students at various levels and abilities in an urban community. I am extremely qualified to tutor students of all ages; I have a love of learning and literature and find no greater pleasure than helping students ignite that same passion within themselves. I hold my students to high standards, while at the same time, I strive to make sure that all of my students feel safe...

I am a highly motivated, dedicated, enthusiastic and experienced teacher who has nearly ten years of experience teaching students at various levels and abilities in an urban community. I am extremely qualified to tutor students of all ages; I have a love of learning and literature and find no greater pleasure than helping students ignite that same passion within themselves. I hold my students to high standards, while at the same time, I strive to make sure that all of my students feel safe and comfortable, therefore creating the perfect environment for students to push themselves further than they thought possible. I work extremely hard to become well acquainted with my students and their abilities, which, I have found, has been the key to my success as an educator.

Having been the leader of the English Department for three years, I am highly knowledgeable about my discipline and the trends in education. As the lead teacher, I helped to create the Year Long Plans for both ELA 9 and ELA 12 classes that were aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Furthermore, I developed the curriculum for two classes, a Composition I class and a Shakespeare elective entitled Shakespeare Alive!, both which I taught. I also took part in the creation of department-wide rubrics for narrative, research, and textual analysis writing assignments with the aid of Envision Learning Partners and Stanford Center for Assessment, Learning, & Equity (SCALE). I also have seven years of tutoring experience at the high school where I recently taught for nearly a decade. The program was called Homework Help which involved teachers staying after school for an hour and a half to essentially tutor students in a variety of subjects. We would help with homework assignments, projects, writing and reading assignments, college essays, SAT prep and registration, etc. For the last five out of those seven years I ran the program since the former supervisor was stepping down; I knew just how valuable the program and did not wish to see it close.

I am extremely qualified to be a tutor because of my years of experience teaching English, my years of experience as head of the English department, and the hundreds of students that I have had the pleasure of teaching who truly loved my class and could vouch for my teaching skills.

I am very much looking forward to meeting and working with my new students! Please feel free to contact me at your convenience so that I can learn about how I can best help you!

I have taught English at the high school level for the past nine years at a school outside of Boston. During that time I taught my students a number of successful reading strategies to help them not only in their English classes, but in all their academic classes. For seven years I also tutored students after school at a program called Homework Help where I worked with high school students and would help them in a number of subjects (though English was my specialty) with a variety of homework assignments, writing and reading assignments, organization and study skills, etc.

Literature

I have taught literature at the high school level for the past nine years at a school outside of Boston. During that time I taught a number of different literary genres such as British literature ( Shakespeare, "Lord of the Flies", "Brave New World"), American literature ("The Great Gatsby", "To Kill a Mockingbird"), poetry, short stories, and rhetoric. In addition to English classes I also taught a Shakespeare elective as well. For seven years I also tutored students after school at a program called Homework Help where I worked with high school students and would help them with any literature assignments they may have had.

I have taught English at the high school level for the past nine years at a school outside of Boston and therefore am extremely comfortable teaching and tutoring students with any writing assignment they may have. Additionally, I also taught a Composition class to freshmen at my school. I can easily help students with expository, narrative, research, descriptive, persuasive, and rhetorical writing assignments.

Excellent with Middle Grade Students

Amy was able to immediately engage with my son who was reluctant to work with a tutor. She did not dictate how they would work together but gave him a voice in the process. he was very calm and involved and pleased at the end that they accomplished their goal.
