About Cheyenne

Hello all! My name is Cheyenne and I tutor all things English. That includes English as a Second Language, grammar, writing and SAT preparation.I also have some experience tutoring other subjects at the elementary and middle school level.

I received my bachelor's in English, Secondary education and completed a rigorous future teacher preparatory program called the North Carolina Teaching Fellows. I then went on to earn my master's in English, Rhetoric and Composition. I now teach writing at the college level, and I have over five years of tutoring experience, from first grade level to college.

I believe in motivating students to learn, and I am constantly looking for ways to interest them in learning. I recognize that we live in a modern and media-saturated society, and I try to incorporate technology and culture into my lessons when possible. I care deeply about the success of my students. I give my best during each tutoring session, and I expect nothing but the best from my students in return.

Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Have a great day!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a teaching license at the secondary level but took many of the same classes as the elementary education students. I tutored a variety of subjects at the elementary level for about two years.

English

I have a B.S. in English, secondary education with a teaching license, and M.A. in English, Rhetoric and Composition, as well as over four years of English tutoring experience and one year teaching at the college level.

Grammar

B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English. I also teach grammar in my college-level Composition and Business Communication classes.

Literature

B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English. I teach literature as part of my ENG 1302 class at the college level.

Proofreading

I teach grammar and proofreading to my Business Communication students and have proofread theses and websites professionally. B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English.

Reading

I have taught Developmental Writing at the college level, which has a large focus on Reading and Critical Thinking skills. B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English.

Spelling

I scored excellent on my SAT and GRE reading portions. I honestly rarely use or need spell-check. I'm a really good speller! B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English.

Study Skills

I incorporate study skills into my developmental college composition courses. I focus on reading for retention and note-taking abilities. I use the TKED method for marking reading selections and various note-taking styles such as Cornell and Outlining. I also discuss how to study for a test.

Vocabulary

B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English. I scored above a 650 on my GRE reading portion (under the old scoring system) which includes vocabulary. I know a lot of words!

Writing

I have a B.S. in English, secondary education, and M.A. in English, Rhetoric and Composition. My M.A. program was geared largely towards teaching students HOW to teach writing at the college level, including composition theory and pedagogical theory. I tutored at the Writing Center at Texas State University for a year and worked for an online tutoring service, tutoring essay writing for a year. I now teach college composition.
