About Bobbi

I'm currently a retired educator with 40+ years in the public and private school system. I have a MAT degree in Secondary Reading. Since I was chair of the English department, I am familiar with all aspects of the English curriculum as well as the common core. I have written and implemented curriculum for the English department in the public school setting in which I taught.

When I retired from public school, I continued my career as an educator at a private school. I have taught all levels of English from 7-12, although I prefer working with high school students. At the high school level, I have taught English 9, 10, American Literature, World Literature, Advanced Composition, Creative Writing, AP English Literature and AP English Language and Composition. One of the courses that I designed for the public school was that of a college writing course. In my after-school hours, I spent many hours assisting students who needed to develop and polish college essays.

Currently, I tutor students from my home where I have an office. It works well in that I make sure that there are no home distractions. In addition, I have the resources I might need at hand. Not only can I work with students on individual assignments, but I can build reading comprehension skills as well as give individual attention to students who need help in writing. If I am asked to travel, I would need to assess an additional fee as the time it takes to travel will take away from additional tutoring.
