About Meredith

I would be excited to be part of helping challenge, nurture and prepare your child for the greatest possible academic success. I am a certified English Language Arts teacher with more than 13 years of successful classroom experience. I have taught almost all levels of English, from Creative Writing, Honors and Advanced Placement courses to developmental English. I started teaching at Weaver Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, which was listed among Newsweek's top 100 high schools in the nation. I also have taught an evening course at Rockingham Community College. I am currently in my sixth year teaching in Orange County Schools, having taught three years at a Middle School and in my third year at a High School.

I can help students achieve success on a variety of assessments, including state-administered End-of-Course exams, Writing Tests, the Advanced Placement English Language and Composition Exam, the Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition Exam, the Praxis, the ACT, and the SAT.

I have taught students from a variety of backgrounds and know how to approach different learning styles, break down the material, and communicate with patience, clarity, innovation, and enthusiasm so a student can learn. I promote a love for learning, responsibility, and self-esteem in each student. I tailor to individual learning needs and learning styles by incorporating multiple strategies.

I know and love my subject and am dedicated to student learning. I understand that each individual has unique needs, and by quickly and accurately assessing a student's strengths and areas of growth, I adjust as needed to maintain interest and motivation. The result is a student who demonstrates mastery of the content and enjoys the process. Few things are more rewarding than seeing an individual feel empowered through written expression and reading comprehension.

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.

Praxis

I received an Educational Testing Service Award for Outstanding Achievement on Praxis II for English. I am a certified English teacher and have more than 11 years experience teaching all grade levels, including Advanced Placement Language and Advanced Placement Literature.
