BA, Washington University in St. Louis (English)
I am currently a Washington University in St. Louis student. I am an English major and a Creative Writing minor. I am also a part of the Howard Nemerov Creative Writing Program. I have volunteered and worked with kids my entire life and immensely enjoy helping them think outside the box, especially in regards to writing.
I have a passion for grammar and literature, and believe that reading and writing are skills that can be acquired by any individual with enough practice. If one method of understanding does not make sense to a child, or if a technique or rule does not click, that of course does not mean that the latter is above the child's comprehension. I enjoy working with kids most predominantly because their minds are imaginative. It is this creativity that can help a child understand and grow as a reader and a writer. As a tutor, I want to help improve these skills in a way that suits each child as the creative individual that he or she is.
I took all AP or honors English and Writing courses available to me in high school and excelled in them. As an English at Washington University, I am taking courses focusing on grammar, analytical thinking/writing, short story collections, and creative writing.
I would love to work with anyone needing a little extra help with reading, language arts, or writing. I am willing to work with any age student up to high school, so please feel free to contact me!

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.
