University of Mississippi (English Education)
Hi there! My name is Rachel! I am a current senior at the University of Mississippi, studying English Education. I am working on my student teaching practicum, so I am familiar and comfortable with working with teenagers and young adults in my content area. I find great joy in helping young adults to find that "lightbulb moment" where they finally understand the material they are studying. I enjoy guiding students toward achieving their maximum potential.
Though I have little experience with tutoring, I have a breadth of knowledge in my content area, as I have studied American and English literature in my college courses. Additionally, I have done extensive coursework in grammar, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, American poetry, Old English, and fiction. I am the recipient of many university level awards, including the Foran Curriculum Planning Award and the Horatio Alger Scholar Award. Additionally, I am a member of three honor societies: Phi Kappa Phi, Gamma Beta Phi, and Golden Key Honor Society.
I have a 3.9 overall GPA, and a 4.0 GPA in my English courses. Coursework includes: Shakespeare, British Fiction, 19th Century British Novels, Literary Criticism, Early American Literature, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Grammar, Old English, Film Studies, Advanced Writing, and Fairy Tales.

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.
