About Ailia

I've been tutoring or teaching English for over a decade, first as a Writing tutor during college, then as a Graduate Assistant for Academic support while completing my Masters. I taught as an Adjunct Instructor at Suffolk County Community College for several years before going abroad to pursue another MA degree at the University of London.

I can work with students across the humanities, reading and writing about a various topics. In addition to writing, I can provide general academic support as well, including note-taking skills, exam prep, homework help and other study skills. I tailor my approach to enhance the individual student's strengths and address specific concerns. Education, especially reading, writing, and thinking, is my passion.

Please get in touch with me if you feel like you are lost or about to lose hope. There is no such thing as a bad writer. Writing and studying are skills that need practice, advice, and direction. I really do this because I love it, and I always give it my all.

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

- 4 years of teaching experience at Suffolk Community College
- extensive tutoring experience at St. John's University,
- private tutoring for high-school and college aged students.

I am committed to cultivating student confidence and can tailor tutoring sessions to students' specific needs. I personally enjoy literature and academic writing, and hope that my passion for the subject will benefit my students.

Grammar

As a writing teacher and tutor, I am familiar with all the conventions and rules of English grammar, punctuation and usage.

Literature

I have both a B.A. and M.A. in English literature and have tutored and taught the subject at the college level for several years.

I have experience introducing students to various genres of literature as well as contextualizing the literature in it's historical period. (For example, Classical, Medieval, Elizabethan, Victorian, Modern, Postmodern, etc.) Furthermore, I am experienced with teaching students how to understand texts through various literary terms and conventions.

My prior experience includes working with students to engage with literature, often analyzing, interpreting, and writing about various texts, as well as preparing for written exams.

Reading

Reading comprehension is an essential skill for all coursework, especially upper level writing and literature courses. My degrees in English literature in addition to my teaching and tutoring experience qualify me to tutor in this subject area. For most reading students, I work with them on note-taking skills and vocabulary skills in order to strengthen their reading comprehension and recollection.

Flexible, Understanding

Worked with Ailia, for the GMAT English section. She was very flexible with meetings and understanding of any changes (with ample notice). I am glad I got to work with Ailia, and would recommend her to any GMAT test takers.
