About Alanna


Bio

In 2012, I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in English education. From there, I have taught middle and high school English, at both private and public schools. I even spent a year teaching in the mountains in Colorado! My favorite part of teaching is seeing students recognize their own growth; it is one thing for me to see their improvement, but it is twice as rewarding when a student says "Wow, I've really improved" or "I get it now" or even makes a connection from a...

In 2012, I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in English education. From there, I have taught middle and high school English, at both private and public schools. I even spent a year teaching in the mountains in Colorado! My favorite part of teaching is seeing students recognize their own growth; it is one thing for me to see their improvement, but it is twice as rewarding when a student says "Wow, I've really improved" or "I get it now" or even makes a connection from a concept we've talked about in class to their own life. I enjoy helping students better understand plot and characterization, strengthen their writing, showing them how to connect ideas in writing, as well as prepare for standardized tests.

Outside of the classroom, I am an avid runner. I have coached track and cross country for six years and have been blessed with amazing athelete and have gotten the opportunity to see them run at the state level! I enjoy coaching as it allows me to get to know my students outside of the classroom and share something I love with them. Aside from running, I have two kids and two dogs who keep me busy and on the move!

I am a strong English tutor as I work inside the school and know what is expected of students. From being a teacher for nine years, I have the skillset to help students reach their full potential. Having worked with honor students as well as students with EIP's, I know how to meet students where they are and break down the material so that they are able to understand it and master it.

I am excited to work with you and help you become a stronger student who takes pride in your work!
