About Erica

Currently, I am doing graduate work at Cairn University in Langhorne, PA. Additionally, I'm working on my state licensure requirements to teach English in the state of Pennsylvania. I have 1-2 years of experience tutoring and substitute teaching. I have tutored students from K-12. I traveled abroad to Europe in my junior year and studied in Germany and Austria.

On a personal note, I am married and hope to have children some day. My hobbies are photography, writing, reading, and exercising. I also enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures and people groups.

I utilize vast and varying methods to tutor children. The theory behind the coursework I have taken, subscribes to the view that children learn best when they can internialize new information, and when they can outwardly process that information through writing, talking, drawing, identifying, and demonstrating. As a tutor, I apply this theory as well as different strategies to help the student understand various subjects. Some strageties include: journal writing, audio or visual aids, reading comprehension quizzes, and more. It is my goal that each student I tutor will succeed , and apply the tools I have given them to other areas.

Writing
