About Virginia

Hello, my name is Virginia and I am an adjunct English professor and Ph.D. candidate at St. John's University. Aside from teaching university courses I also work as a teacher for the Institute of Reading Development. I have had the opportunity to travel and teach in over 13 states, working with all ages. I specialize in reading and writing skills but also can help with foreign language, history, test prep etc.

I am passionate about reading and an enthusiastic motivator. I have taught hundreds of students of all ages (pre-k to adult courses) to achieve fluency in reading and writing English, improving my students' reading speed and comprehension skills. My personal policy for working with children and teens is to work with them warmly, but also directly to really address problem areas. I want to set students up with study skills and help build motivation and enthusiasm so learning can be an enjoyable experience in a relaxed atmosphere instead of an anxious battle.

I tutor students of all ages- from kindergarteners first learning to read to adult students struggling with college writing. If there is any other information you would like to know do not hesitate to email me!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have received a certification in TEFL/ESL from Intesol Worldwide Incorporation. I work as a teacher at The Institute of Reading Development and often tutor children in these classes that are behind in English skills because it is their second language.

Couldn't be happier! — Virginia has been working with my 12 year old son and I couldn't be happier with the progress they are making. His grades have improved but, even more importantly, his whole attitude towards reading has improved! He seems to be a more confident reader and this has begun spilling over to his other subjects as well. She is very flexible, patient, kind and even fun! I am so happy that we chose Virgin ...
