About Octavia

I am an enthusiastic and caring teacher with a strong commitment to student empowerment and achievement. I currently teach High School English and have experience teaching Social Studies as well.

I have proven successes in helping students reach their full potential. Helping students be successful on the SAT Exam as well as GED programs and college applications and placement exams.
I also have superior communication skills and easily interact with students and parents with diverse backgrounds. I am dedicated to improving the educational experience of all students, especially those deemed at-risk.
I am also a Freedom Writer Teacher and have attended many Freedom Writer Teacher Symposiums in order to continue to learn new and innovative ways to encourage and empower my students.

I have a Masters degree in Education with an At-Risk Certification and an Undergraduate degree in English. I have almost 10 years of experience in teaching both middle and high school English Language Arts, which includes public speaking, SAT Essay writing, College Essay writing and Rhetorical analysis.
I believe that in order for students to be engaged they must find the content relevant and I will strive to make real life connections so that students can comprehend the relevance of what they are learning.

I am available for tutoring at a local Library or at a mutually convenient location. I do require a 24 hour notice of cancellation, however I am willing to make up a session for any unforeseen emergencies.

I look forward to meeting with you and I will provide a free consultation meeting to discuss your individual needs. Please to contact me to schedule an appointment
