Colgate University (English)
As the daughter of two teachers, I had the benefit of understanding both sides of the teacher-student dynamic from a young age.
I recently graduated from Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, with a major in English Literature, earning Honors, and a minor in Studio Art. In addition to my academic success, I have tutored students with learning disabilities at an Elementary School on a weekly basis for three out of my four years. The students range in grade level from fourth to sixth grade, and need help in Math, English, or both. In tutoring students with learning disabilities, I have experience not only in teaching English and Math, but also in keeping them focused on the material. From my English classes, I have experience critiquing essays, and the mandatory critiquing process in my Art classes has taught me how to provide constructive feedback in a positive way.
While my only formal tutoring experience has been in elementary education, I have taken advanced courses in English and Math throughout high school, and have taken AP tests in both areas, so I am familiar with the material, although my strength is in English. I have also taken Art classes throughout high school and college, and outside of school at Staub Art Studio since the age of nine, so I have years of experience in both painting and drawing.
I am flexible with the location of tutoring, because I feel that students learn the best in an environment in which they feel comfortable. I have a 3-hour cancellation policy to allow for last minute emergencies, and I can re-schedule any missed class for a more convenient time.

For the past two years, I have tutored students with learning disabilities like ADD and ADHD at Edward R. Andrews Elementary School in Morrisville, New York. Before I began tutoring, I had to attend two tutoring workshops where I was taught how to help the children learn as well as introduced to the Common Core curriculum.
Because the students I tutored had learning disabilities, part of my job was to keep them focused and teach them how to study successfully on their own.
