About Toby


Bio

Hello potential students. My name is Toby and when I was little, my mother would read to me every night before bed. This was a special time that I would look forward to when we could spend time together and I could let my imagination run wild while listening to the exciting and adventurous stories we would pick out together while going on our weekly trips to the library.

Hello potential students. My name is Toby and when I was little, my mother would read to me every night before bed. This was a special time that I would look forward to when we could spend time together and I could let my imagination run wild while listening to the exciting and adventurous stories we would pick out together while going on our weekly trips to the library.

I hold a B.A. in English from UNCG and use a variety of methods when tutoring literature. I taught High School and Middle School for several years. Role playing, acting, written exercises and goal oriented projects are some of the ways we will look at the literature we are studying. When we read a price of literature, we will segment the work while exploring themes, genre, writing style with a full comparison to the major issues of today's current events. This helps us see where the writers intent lies and how these universal concepts are never ending but sometimes disguised behind other creative narratives.

I became a teacher with that same enthusiasm and excitement that I had as a child. I am a lifelong lover of books and appreciate their ability to engage the imagination by letting it wander to other lands, cultures, and times! My students tell me that when we read a great work of literature, that I make it fun and exciting. I Look forward to sharing this love for adventure and reading with you!

Sincerely,
Toby
