Trouble Reading or Writing?
I'm a reading tutor with the Ohio Reading Corps specializing in reading and writing difficulties. For the past year I've spent most of my time tutoring first, second and third grade students in the Hilliard school district at Avery Elementary. I also tutor part-time at Slate Hill Elementary in Worthington. There's no writing or reading problem too difficult for me to handle.
In college, I tutored students with writing difficulties at the university writing lab. Since this help was available to students in all majors, I'm also well-equipped to help students write and edit term papers in any subject and at any educational level.
I have university degrees in English and Philosophy. I'm experienced in getting to the bottom of reading and writing problems and work well with students from all backgrounds. So, if you're looking for an experienced tutor to help you or that special loved one get through some difficult times with school work, let's meet and together solve your academic problems.

I am willing to consider price discounts for longer term students. This will be discussed after the first meeting.
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.
I am finishing this school year as a Common Core reading interventionist with the Ohio Reading Corp. I am currently serving in the Hilliard school district at Avery Elementary. My training includes a thorough background in phonics, the Stevenson Language series and Elkonin Box usage. My students exhibit a wide range of difficulties which I find both challenging and rewarding. There's nothing more satisfying as a tutor than watching students perform at levels exceeding their expectations.
I have an undergraduate degree in English with a specialty in American literature. I also have a master's degree in Philosophy. I taught introductory level philosophy courses while in graduate school and worked as an English and writing tutor at the university writing lab as an undergraduate. Both curriculums made me well-grounded in the subject matter. My love of teaching and tutoring allow me to give my best to my students.
I am a reading tutor with the Ohio Reading Corps and am currently tutoring in the Hilliard, Ohio school district. I have taken extensive training classes in all levels of reading including phonics. As well, I use Elkonin Box strategies with students having difficulty with spelling and pronunciation. In addition, I have also trained with the Stevenson Language instruction curriculum. Phonics plays an important and daily part of my tutoring work with students.
I have degrees in English and philosophy and have taught both subjects with great success. Reading is my vocation as well as avocation. I love to read!
I have both undergraduate and graduate degrees in both English and Philosophy and am certain you'll benefit from my experience.
