About Summer

I began tutoring in high school and haven't stopped since. Following high school years in which I tutored some of my fellow students in English, I completed my bachelor's degree in English (Honors, 3.82 GPA) while taking part in an extensive pre-teaching program, through which I earned a minor in Educational Psychology. I put theory into practice through classroom teaching experiences and volunteering my time with the International Rescue Committee to help refugees learn English as a second language. After enrolling in a Master of Arts in Teaching program (3.85 GPA), I spent a year teaching 9th grade English in an urban high school. While I honed my craft in the classroom through teaching everything from essay-writing to slam poetry to "Romeo and Juliet," I also dedicated many hours to tutoring students one-on-one during free periods and after school. Students who spoke English as a second language, students with cognitive difficulties, and students who just wanted an extra edge all found that they achieved success through their work with me.

I love helping struggling students produce work that they can be proud of, giving hardworking students the tools that they need to push their achievements higher, and offering the personalized, one-on-one support, guidance, and encouragement that all students can thrive under. I believe that with individualized feedback and goal-setting, students will find that they can achieve more than they thought they could, and will become more self-sufficient thinkers and workers in the process.

You can contact me through Wyzant's email system if you would like to schedule a lesson or if you have any questions!

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.

English

Having recently earned a Master of Arts in Teaching for secondary English, I am familiar with the most current best practices in teaching theory. I also have a year of experience teaching 9th grade English, which involved creating my own unit and lesson plans and providing individualized feedback for classes full of students. While teaching, I also engaged in one-on-one tutoring with many students of varying skill levels during free periods and after school, with positive results.

Proofreading

As someone with a B.A. in English and a Master of Arts in Teaching for secondary English, I have a lot of experience with the English language, including editing for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I have proofread essays and magazine submissions for my peers and students. Additionally, I have spent the past twelve years proofreading fiction on a voluntary basis.

THE MOST AMAZING language arts tutor!

Our 13 year old has only been seeing Ms. Summer for 3 weeks and has drastically improved in various areas. He has been in school districts that were week in language arts and math from grades 1-6, so he was lacking in a few areas to say the least. He has managed to raise his grade in English/Lit 2 letter grades since tutoring with Summer. It's absolutely amazing! Summer has a special way about lea
