About Sofie

I am currently a fiction candidate in UNCW's MFA graduate program in Wilmington. In June of 2015, I obtained a Master's degree in English and Pedagogy, an experience that provided me the opportunity to teach composition and ESL to college freshmen. Before moving to Wilmington, I taught seventh and eleventh grade Language Arts and English (respectively) in a private school in Duluth, Minnesota. I've also tutored Algebra, Prealgebra, Social Studies, and Literacy to elementary through high school aged students. I consider one-on-one teaching my greatest strength, as I have the insight and intuition required to creatively reach and teach to students' individual needs. Not only do I know my stuff, I enjoy it so much!

I've helped students with Prealgebra for many years. Not only was it my favorite subject in middle school, it is also one of my favorite subjects to teach. I enjoy finding ways to teach mathematical concepts that are creative and reach each student on an individual basis.

Please contact me via Wyzant if you need extra help and would like to work with someone who will confidently guide you in setting goals for yourself, and offer innovative solutions and ideas for how you can improve in your English, writing, reading, grammar, science, social studies, and mathematics. We will learn together and above all, we will have fun. Looking forward to speaking with you!

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.

Drawing

I am an artist myself. I enjoy painting and drawing. I was an assistant art teacher for middle school students for a program called Young Rembrandts, as well as a volunteer for Free Arts Minnesota, where I worked with young kids designing art projects for them to do after school. I love teaching students who are interested in art.
