BYU (English Teaching)
I have always loved to teach and my dream of becoming a teacher became a reality when I graduated from BYU in English teaching. While at BYU, I was able to participate in the TOPS organization and tutor elementary students for a semester. I also gained teaching experience by completing my Practicum and Student Teaching at Dixon Middle School as an English Teacher. I have also gained experience teaching and tutoring after BYU by being a school aide and helping kids one on one who struggle in certain subject areas.
As a tutor, I plan to always be prepared to help my students with their specific needs and be encouraging as well as challenging, so students can stretch and learn. I plan on giving my students the proper tools that will help them in the future with their reading and writing skills.
I specialize in writing, reading comprehension, grammar, and literature.
Every day I am free after 4pm, but some days I can be free all day.

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.
As an English Teaching Major at BYU, I was required to take not only teaching classes, but the same amount of English classes that a normal English major has to take. I've always enjoyed reading and writing and using them as a way to interpret the world around me.
I took how a class on how to teach grammar at BYU. I have read books on how to make teaching grammar more fun. I have also learned techniques on how to make grammar more understandable and help students know how important grammar is when trying to convey a message.
I took many literature classes at BYU. From Early American Literature, to Modern American Literature, as well as British Literature.
I have taken specific classes on how to teach reading comprehension. Assessments I created while student teaching tested my students' ability to comprehend what they read.
I have taken classes on how to teach writing while I was at BYU. I also evaluated students' writing and created writing assignments when I student taught at a middle school. I created assignments that required creative as well as argumentative writing skills.
