Helping students achieve success in the classroom and sharing my love for the English language and writing has always been a goal of mine. I love to teach and being a tutor with Wyzant Tutoring Service is a great place to reach out to those children who need help the most. My goal is for the student to be engaged and eager explore ways of learning new concepts.
I received my Masters in Secondary Education and am currently working on getting certified in English for grades 5-8 this fall. In 2011, I worked with Club Z Tutoring Service where I tutored students in the "No Child Left Behind" program. They made excellent progress through the program, as was reflected in their post tests. I enjoyed the interaction with my students, and I made the time fun and brought additional material in order for them to grasp the concepts better.
I specialize ELA, SAT English/essay preparation, research papers and GRE assistance. I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy but will allow students to make up any missed classes. I engage parents in the tutoring process with progress reports and assessment reviews.
I want to make the tutoring experience for each child a safe and comfortable environment. My tutoring sessions will be conducted at the student's homes unless other arrangements can be made. I currently live in the Blackstone Valley area but willing to travel throughout the Metro West and Worcester County areas.
Please contact me today about any setting up a time to meet with me. I am planning to post picture of myself soon. I look forward to helping you to excel in your studies!
What makes me an excellent English tutor is my ability to make the child feel empowered and enjoy encouraging them to find the language fun and interesting to learn. I have strong writing skills and have a solid background as a teacher in American and British literature.

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.
