I am currently entering my 4th year teaching middle and high school English at a private Chicago school well-reputed for its 100% college acceptance rate. Our model is unique because our 9th graders come to us from a wide range of academic skills and successes, and it is our job to provide the instruction, support, and encouragement to prepare each student for the country's top colleges and universities. As such, after-school tutoring is a large part of the job and I've really come to appreciate the unique benefits that come from one-on-one instruction and intervention.
As your tutor, I will work with you to set goals, to identify areas of need, and to push you forward as an independent and inspired learner. With my undergraduate in English/American Literature from New York University and my masters of education from St. Joseph's University, I am both passionate about and experienced in the study of writing and literature. It would be my mission as your tutor to provide tools and strategies that demystify the reading and writing process without taking away the magic that makes the study of language such a joy.
