About Whitney

I have an MEd from Columbia College and a degree in English from the University of South Carolina. I began teaching high school literature in a small private school setting. I struggled with how to get my students not just motivated to read, but to develop an understanding of and appreciation for, even love, classics like Macbeth, Beowulf, and Frankenstein. I learned to present the material to them in a way that is engaging and appeals to them, not the way that works best for me.

As a teacher, my philosophy is to help each child find success in reading and writing, as I believe that will be the greatest instrinsic motivator for students. As well, I place the individual learner's needs at the center of my instruction, and base my teaching around how each child learns.

I am a lifelong learner and an avid reader. Nothing makes me happier than to read a book with my students and have them cheer when it ends because they enjoyed it so much. I love working with struggling readers to help them find success in reading and develop an appreciation for reading!

I am available on weekday evenings and some Saturday mornings. I can meet at the library or your home.
