About Sydney

Hello!

I am a former middle school Spanish teacher, currently working as a writing tutor at Virginia Western Community College while I pursue my Master's degree in English at Hollins University. I hope to put my language and teaching skills to use for your family! I earned my Bachelor of Arts with Honors in English and Spanish from Otterbein University, have three years of full-time teaching experience, and have worked as a private tutor for over six years with students ages 8-65 in reading, writing, and Spanish. I enjoy working with students with a wide range of needs and abilities, and am passionate about helping students improve their reading, writing, and foreign language skills.

I look forward to meeting you!

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 am certified by the Ohio Department of Education to long-term substitute teach for grades k-12. I have over three years of experience tutoring elementary-age students in Columbus. I have taken multiple education classes at Otterbein University that studied how elementary-aged children learn and placed me for observation and student teaching in elementary schools. I am in the process of completing my final courses to receive full teaching certification in all grades k-12.
