Hello, my name is Dimtri, and I am very excited to work with you and your student. I am currently a full-time English teacher for grades 7 and 8. In addition, I am a Literacy Specialist In Training. This means that I am currently finishing my coursework to be a literacy, or reading, teacher. With this knowledge, I am adept at finding strategies to help students read and understand grade level texts. Being a full-time teacher, I am very aware of the immense stress and pressure put on your student to succeed both socially and academically. My approach to private tutoring is to cater my instruction to my specific student. Each child learns in his/her own way, and I try to cater to that as much as possible.
I have three years of experience as a private tutor. I also worked for several public school districts as a homebound instructor, which means that I acted as students’ teachers who were out on behavioral suspension or medical leave. In doing so, I am adept at teaching any grade, from middle school to high school, in English Language arts.
Grammar, writing, and analyzing literature shouldn’t be stressful. When I work with you I will ensure your success by showing you tricks of the trade that will allow you ace all of your ELA classes and tests! Whether it is the SAT, ACT, or Common Core test, we will work together to ensure that you will not only pass, but that you do well. I also welcome working with students that just want to get ahead. Even if we are not doing test prep, I will work with you to advance your ELA skills.
Contact me for more information so that we can work together to ensure your student’s success! I have flexible hours, including late nights and weekends.

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.
