About Andrea

I am a senior at Portland State University. I am a native English speaker. I have experience as a TA grading essays and fostering an inquisitive student atmosphere. I interned at a Law Office where I proofread legal documents. I have helped many high school student prepare to take the ACT/SAT.

I am passionate about the English language. I enjoy reading, writing and sharing my knowledge with others. I believe proper grammar and creative use of vocabulary is vital for clear communication and to excel at academics. I am adept at creative writing and analytical essays as I have experienced that it is necessary to have both skills for academics as well as in professional settings. My passion is contagious and encourages my pupils. I have found that it is more beneficial to teach out of interest than necessity, for teacher and student alike.

The students I have helped with SAT and ACT prep have succeeded and gone on to University. I have familiarity with SAT/ACT test format, enrollment process, and admissions timelines. I help students hone their skills by utilizing hands on learning accompanied by sample tests.

I am flexible with locations and times. I enjoy working with children of all ages and creative expression. I adapt my teaching style to the student(s). Patience is truly a virtue and it is one that I uphold. I am highly motivated and enthusiastic. It brings me great pleasure to help others become successful.
