About Erika

My effectiveness as a teacher stems from my love of literature and passion for helping students set and achieve personalized goals. I have experience teaching curriculum that combines a rigorous college preparatory program with coursework that promotes competency in areas of personal development and creative expression.

I have eleven years experience teaching challenging courses such as Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition and Creative Writing as well as intervention classes that focus on remediating specific skill deficits as identified on student MCA and MAP scores. I am a certified 7-12 Language Arts teacher and a certified K-12 School Counselor and specialize in AP Literature Exam Prep, Creative Writing, College Applications, ACT Prep as well as MCA Reading Prep. I love helping students master the the state and national standards to help them gain important 21st century skills, but more importantly, I love seeing students' self confidence soar when they meet and exceed expectations!

I find that one of my greatest strengths is my ability to make connections with students. I treasure the opportunities I have to know my students as individuals, and I am passionate about helping them set and achieve goals. I am committed to helping each student reach his/her greatest potential and believe in approaching each child as a whole, addressing all aspects of his/her life as interrelated. My goal as a tutor is to customize lessons to meet the unique needs of each individual.

I am currently a school counselor so my availability is limited to weekends during the school year, but I will be more available during the summer months. Presently, I'm available from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. I charge $50/hour and am available to travel to students but can also meet online if necessary. Looking forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Writing

I taught middle and high school language arts for eleven years before becoming a school counselor. I specialize in creative writing, literary analysis, and persuasive writing. Please feel free to email with specific questions! I'd be glad to share more about my teaching experience.
