About Druis

A graduate of Hunter College with a BA in American History and Filmmaking, I worked during school as a tutor/counselor with the Upward Bound Program at Columbia University, along with various afterschool programs. Professionally, I have been directed literacy-based arts-in-education programs that included tutoring, reading, homework assistance, and project-based activities to strengthen student’s comprehension and fluency skills for greater success in classroom and examination performance. Currently enrolled in the MA in Liberal Studies Program with Empire State College/SUNY, I am also a published poet and spoken word artist who conducts literary workshops in poetry, non-fiction, autobiography and storytelling. Being able to clearly state one’s ideas and understand those of others requires the development and use of tools.

I can tutor reading, vocabulary, and writing for all grades and the NYS exams, and public speaking, writing, and literature for students 9+. The design of traditional and creative approaches in each tutorial session. I will assign homework for each lesson, and provide periodic assessments and student evaluations. I am available for tutoring Tuesday-Friday 1-9pm and can travel to students or meet online. My base rate is $50/hour for in-person lessons and $45 for on-line lessons.

I look forward to hearing from you.
