About Tiffany

I have always had a passion for learning, especially in English Language Arts, and I would love to pass that hunger for knowledge on to other students. My goal is to help students realize their full potential and find that they too can be life long learners.

I am almost complete with my degree in Education with a concentration in English at Kent State University, so I have extensive knowledge and experience in teaching young minds from grades 7 to 12, including test preparation for ESL students. I have experience with students at Akron City Schools (Kenmore High and North High), Tallmadge Middle School, and Barberton Middle School.

I specialize in formal paper writing and revision, reading comprehension, creative writing, literature, test taking strategies, and preparation for more rigorous English and writing classes.

I am available most days for tutoring, either in-person or online, and have a very flexible schedule. If in-person tutoring is preferred, I would prefer to meet in a public place such as a library or a coffee shop.

I look forward to hearing from students who wish to succeed in their studies!

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.

Grammar

I have taken many English courses ranging from linguistics to creative writing, including full courses on grammar. I have instructed full lessons on grammar as well as tutored OGT students one-on-one on the basics of grammar in writing.

Literature

I am currently working towards my BSE in Education with a concentration in English. I have an extensive background in literature, both from my avid reading habits as well as the classes I have taken in college. Some of these classes include Intro. to Shakespeare, Literature in English I and II, U.S. Literature I, Women's Literature, Children's Literature, Fairy Tales, and so on.

Praxis

I have taken the initial Praxis test with high scores. I have extensive training in English education and will attain my BSE this coming May. I also have a lot of experience in tutoring students for standardized testing.

Proofreading

My main purpose when tutoring in the past has been research paper writing, which involved much proofreading on my part. I am also a writer myself and am accustomed to proofreading on a regular basis.

Reading

I have tutored many students, especially ESL students and students with reading difficulties, on how to become stronger readers. I am extremely passionate about molding students into life long lovers of reading.

Vocabulary

Through my teacher preparation courses, I have learned numerous strategies to help students learn new vocabulary and retain their new vocabulary. I myself also have a large vocabulary due to the amount of literature I read on a daily basis.

Writing

I have had extensive training and experience in tutoring students with both formal and informal writing tasks as part of my education towards getting my BSE in Education with a concentration on English. I have worked with students from grades 7-12 as well as ESL students, and am passionate about instilling an appreciation for writing in all students.
