I attended high school near Gainesville, FL, and moved up to Boston for college in 2011. I received my BA in English from Northeastern University in May of 2014, and graduated summa cum laude with a GPA of 3.91. I am pursuing my MA in English at Northeastern University beginning fall of 2014, with an expected graduation date of May 2016. I've worked with students of all ages, grades, and levels, both informally during my high school years and more formally with 826 Boston. I tutor students in English and all related areas: language arts, essay writing, literature, and phonics, as well as test prep for the SAT Verbal, Critical Reading, and Writing, as well as the ACT English, Reading, and Writing. I have experience working with ESL students of all levels, and am working on my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certification this summer. I love tutoring students in reading and literature; learning how to analyze literary works reveals so much more depth and makes reading such a rewarding experience. I also really enjoy working with ESL students, and attempting to learn several foreign languages on my own has given me a strong sense of respect for anyone attempting to learn to speak English. I make sure my students learn how to do their work themselves, and believe in breaking down different study procedures and subject matter into small, bite-size pieces. Every student has the potential to be a successful reader and a successful writer, and the two skills really go hand-in-hand. When I'm not in classes or working, I love to travel, and I spend a lot of time doing poetry-related activities: I write my own, read the work of my fellow poets, contribute and edit with a friend's independent publishing company, and attend all the readings and open mics I can. I also play terrible acoustic guitar covers, have lots of movie nights, and bake a mean banana nut muffin.
