About Hayley

My English teachers taught me more than Shakespeare; under their guidance I learned how to form and express my own ideas, to listen carefully to the ideas of my classmates and to engage in conversation. I think that every student has the right to realize the value of their contributions, within and beyond the English classroom, and I make it my goal to help students recognize their worth.

I practice active listening. I've found that when given the opportunity, students often reveal interests and strengths that don't make it into tests and papers. During my five years spent as a college writing tutor, I learned to recognize deep reservoirs of inspiration, of individuality, and ask the open-ended questions that encouraged students to tap into these sources themselves. The goal being: develop the student, not just the paper.

Creativity resonates, and some of my most memorable moments as a student were born from an English teacher’s decision to introduce modernism with a painting, or to compare Slaughterhouse Five to Harold and Maude. Just as I have an assortment of interests (film, photography, baking, running, ballet, to name a few) so do my students; I do my best to incorporate these natural attractions into our discussions to make the lessons more effective.

Above all, tutoring is about the student. I look forward to getting to know yours and learning a thing or two, myself.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information.

Approved subjects

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.

Film

Within my English major, I concentrated in Film Studies. In addition to analyzing frames, scenes and themes in analytical essays, I have experience with the filmmaking process; I shot and edited (using Final Cut Pro) two short documentaries for a college film class, I created short web videos about the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, and I taught filmmaking at a technology summer camp. I have taken one screenwriting class, so I have a basic knowledge of the screenwriting process.

A+ Online Sessions

Hayley is a very knowledgeable and thoughtful tutor. I utilized her online sessions for thesis papers, analysis essays, and compare/contrast assignments. Her guidance and flexibility has eased A LOT of the stress that comes with intense and demanding college courses. Quick responses, quick editing turn-around time, and college "convenient" hours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
