Hi!
My name is Monica, and I enjoy tutoring students in middle school, high school, and college. I graduated with honors from the University of Michigan—Dearborn with a BA in French and Political Science and completed my MA in Teaching in 2010, at Grand Canyon University. My experience as a professional educator has involved both teaching and tutoring on various platforms, both in-person and online.
As a French teacher, I have learned that students in French I, II, and III succeed in learning a foreign language study when they have opportunities to speak the language and experience communicative activities with a fluent speaker. That is why I always include dialogue and conversation in my teaching. I can assist your student with vocabulary, verb conjugation, reading comprehension and more. I use World Languages and OPI standards to guide my lesson planning.

English tutoring is helpful to students who face challenges in reading comprehension and writing skills, and those are two areas of specialty in my tutoring. I am well-versed in various forms of literature and have been instructing students on essay writing for over 10 years. I have developed custom resources, which I share during our lessons together. Following our lesson, targeted feedback will be included and any whiteboards used in the sessions will be sent to you via Wyzant Messages.

I am excited to get started tutoring with you, and I hope that you enjoy our tutoring lessons. If you would like to meet me for an introductory meeting to set educational goals, I am happy to schedule one free of charge.

Grammar

I have been editing and proofreading professional resumes and college essays for the past 10 years. My experiences as an avid reader and writer have informed me of the best way to convey a message. Whether your writing needs to be more concise or you need some pointers on sentence structure, I can help you learn the rules of grammar as you seek to understand how to properly apply them.
Proofreading

Proofreading

I specialize in editing and proofreading college and post-graduate papers. I am strict when it comes to grammar, because it can “make or break” your paper. I can explain grammar rules, mechanics, and usage to make it easier for you to improve in these areas overall. My approach is to allow students to make the necessary changes to their writing as I provide support. I will walk you through the grammar, pulling examples from your writing so you can recognize where mistakes have been made. Writing is a crucial skill to your studies, so learning to read your paper with an eye for grammar, sentence structure and punctuation is essential.

My educational background and teaching experience has introduced me to study tools and methods that can work for every student. I base my methods on Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory, which focuses 7 learning styles, including: visual/spatial, auditory (sound), linguistic (words), and logical- mathematical (logic and reason), to name a few. I assist students in discovering their unique learning styles and teach them the time management and organization skills needed to support academic growth and achievement.

I have successfully tutored many students in all phases of the writing process. Students come to me with an essay's first draft. Beginning with a critique of the content, I continue providing tips for improving structure, grammar, and walk them through editing and proofreading. "Fine-tuning" to check for concise writing, word choice, sentence structure and spelling allows me to help the student produce their best work, using their own words.

In obtaining my advanced teaching degree introduced me to current and effective methods for teaching writing across the curriculum. My goal is to help you develop writing skills that will make you a more confident writer. I can be your "sideline coach" through the 5 phases of the writing process: pre-writing, 1st draft, revision, editing, and proofreading. I am a strong proponent of pre-writing using graphic organizers, concept maps, and outlines. I've also created custom resources to help you understand grammar conventions and citation formats (MLA, APA). I look forward to working with you!
