About Ayla

Hard work and determination pay off, and as a tutor, I help students be the best they can be so that they can see their potential and achieve their goals. I specialize in English literature, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar.

Throughout school, my scores have been consistently excellent, and my education training qualifies me to tutor students. I want to help other students be as successful as I have been. In the past, the students who I have tutored have seen significant improvements in their scores and understanding.

I have previous formal experience tutoring elementary students, and informal experience tutoring students ranging from first grade through college. I specialize in SAT, ACT, state exams, and general English tutoring. I believe a lesson is successful if the student can walk away understanding more than when they started, and having more self confidence in their abilities.

I currently attend Susquehanna University where I major in English Secondary Education. I am a Presidential Fellow and part of the honors program. I am also involved in the service organization Alpha Phi Omega and several on-campus clubs, in which I hold executive board positions. I prefer to set up tutoring times individually with families and students, so that lessons can fit into both of our schedules comfortably. All student are different, so I focus on figuring out how each student learns and then gearing my tutoring process to them. I hold all lessons at the Susquehanna University library or online.

Phonics

As an education student, I have had several classes that concentrated on phonics and instructional methods. Educational psychology focused on why phonics are important, and English Language Learners taught techniques on how to teach phonics to children learning English as a first or second language. Additionally, I have tutored a younger child, and spent time in classrooms ranging from preschool to high school assisting teachers. I also have experience helping young children learn their letters, sounds, and basic words while babysitting them.
