About Courtney

I am a 2016 summa cum laude graduate of St. John Fisher College. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in English with a Writing Concentration and my Associates in Science in Liberal Arts and Sciences—General Studies from Monroe Community College. I am passionate about helping students because I enjoy passing my academic knowledge and success on to others.

I have worked with high school and college students in essay writing, research, editing, study skills/organization, history, and beginning-intermediate Spanish. I tutor all levels and aspects of English and history, as well as study skills/organization, college application essays, and Spanish 1 and 2. My favorite subjects to tutor are English, history, and study skills/organization because they are my passions and areas of expertise. My teaching philosophy is to provide a personalized educational experience for every student, using my and his/her life experiences to draw correlations between academics and the “real world.” In my spare time, I enjoy fiction writing, reading, listening to music, dancing, singing, taking pictures, and figure skating.

I studied Spanish for eight years and passed all levels at the top of my class. I also tutored St. John Fisher students in beginning and intermediate Spanish, including a student whose second language is English.

I graduated summa cum laude with an English degree from St. John Fisher College. While I was there, I tutored a fellow student in research and writing whose second language is English. She became an A student and won the Matthew Richards Prize in English. I also tutored a high school student in research and writing techniques.

Please feel free to contact me at any time! I look forward to working 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.

English

I earned a bachelors in English with a writing concentration from St. John Fisher College.

I graduated summa cum laude and had the highest GPA in the 2016 senior class English department.

I tutored a fellow student in research and writing whose second language is English. She became an A student and won the Matthew Richards Prize in English.

Literature

I have taken several literature classes in college, including Literary Analysis, Children's Literature, the Bible and Modern Literature, and Law and Literature. I enjoy analyzing literature to discover what it means and persuading my audience to think about my interpretations.

Spanish

I studied Spanish for eight years and passed all levels at the top of my class. I also tutored St. John Fisher students in beginning and intermediate Spanish, including a student whose second language is English.

Study Skills

In tenth grade, I took a study skills class that tested me to find out what my learning style was. The class then taught me strategies for how to combine my learning style with study techniques. It worked like magic. I graduated summa cum laude from St. John Fisher College using these skills and have also taught many of my friends the tips I learned.

Writing

I graduated from St. John Fisher College with a B.A. in English with a Writing Concentration. I have extensive experience writing all types of works, including narrative essays, literary analyses, persuasive (rhetorical) papers, and research papers. I have also written creative fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction.
