About Madeline

I am currently a full-time employee in a higher education institution. I have earned both my MFA in Creative Writing and my MA in English. I have tutored students during both my undergraduate and graduate work. I am an Ohio native, and am extremely patient, kind, and hard-working. I don't give up on students, and will work hard to make sure students have a full understanding of concepts before moving on. I also have experience nannying and babysitting, which taught me a lot about how young peoples' minds work, and how to communicate effectively with students of every age. I am specifically passionate about the humanities, and would be most effective tutoring in Literature, English, History or the arts.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT English

Not only do I have an MA in English and am getting an MFA in creative writing, I scored highly on the ACT. In high school (Shaker Heights High School in Shaker Heights, Ohio), I was awarded a prize for the highest ACT score in the senior class (400+ students) who chose to go to an Ohio school. I am an excellent test taker and can help pass along my test taking skills.

Ballet

I have taken ballet for 8 years. I understand and can teach the positions (first, second, fourth and fifth - third is rarely used, but can be taught as well). I was trained in the Russian style.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have helped kids in elementary schools with their schoolwork since I was in undergraduate school at Denison University. I am especially skilled in helping with English literature and writing skills

English

I have an MA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing. I have several stories published and am in the process of writing a novel.

Fantastic literature tutor, thoroughly prepared, punctual and organized — Madeline is very knowledgeable about Literature. She came well prepared to begin the first session with a 'getting to know student' exercise and questions to work on with the novel. I would highly recommend her to others. She has a confident and amiable personality. ...
