About Sonya


Bio

I'd love to inspire others through my passion for English, books, writing, and education. I worked at UC Berkeley developing successful elementary school curriculums in science and literacy education for grades 2-5. This included teachers guide material and strategy in the classroom, proper assessment, scaffolding, modeling, and hands-on activities. I wrote a children's book about a PhD candidate studying nanoparticles and communicating chemistry with the scientific community for a 4th-5th...

I'd love to inspire others through my passion for English, books, writing, and education. I worked at UC Berkeley developing successful elementary school curriculums in science and literacy education for grades 2-5. This included teachers guide material and strategy in the classroom, proper assessment, scaffolding, modeling, and hands-on activities. I wrote a children's book about a PhD candidate studying nanoparticles and communicating chemistry with the scientific community for a 4th-5th grade audience that was published as part of the curriculum.

Then I moved to New York to pursue a master's degree in the business of publishing and digital media. I have varied interests: psychology, history, science, literacy. I'm a professional proofreader and editor who is looking for an opportunity to use my past experience to help others achieve the best results possible on their papers, tests, assignments, and to feel good about learning and their accomplishments.

I have helped my own classmates in high school edit and improve their English papers to get higher grades. I've worked to create educational materials for students in elementary school. For a time, I worked at a company that prepared students who needed extra help in writing and English in school, and to prepare for the annual state exams every spring. I've studied literacy and pedagogy and I've helped developed digital learning tools for classrooms at one of the largest educational publishers in the world. I write and read in my spare time, and I'm a freelance digital media consultant.

I want to be a tutor to spread a love of learning that I've always had throughout my life; I've had great teachers who kept me motivated and helped me when I had difficult questions. Please contact me for more information or to schedule a tutoring session.

I have worked on curriculum development for grades K-6 at the University of California and at McGraw-Hill Education. Some of these materials focused on English Language Learners and skills they can use when learning to read new words that might look and sound like words from Spanish or other languages.
Grammar

I have worked on curriculum development for grades K-6 at the University of California and at McGraw-Hill Education. Some of these materials focused on ESL language/grammar acquisition. I have tutored students from elementary to post-grad preparing for AP, GRE, GMAT exams; I've also edited college papers and pointed out areas for improvement and explained the logic behind any grammatical or stylistic changes I've suggested.

I hold a BA in English, excelled on the AP English exam to earn college credit, and eventually graduated early. I've helped peers with English papers since I was in high school and have been formally tutoring for the past few years. I lead an English conversation group and help students of all ages plan, structure, improve, and revise any of their English papers or assignments.

Writing

Writing

I've helped students improve their essays and writing; study for the AP English and GMAT exams for writing/verbal comprehension/grammar/sentence structure; revise papers for high school English; and edited and brainstormed with adults thinking of going back to college. My tutoring experience also encompassed helping a student form a cohesive personal statement and polishing all writing submissions to apply and subsequently gain acceptance into a graduate journalism program they will be attending this Fall!
