I currently teach high school English in Chicago. I have been teaching for three years and absolutely love it. I also am in graduate school earning my Masters of Reading in order to become a Reading Specialist. In addition, I have done private tutoring for the last four years. I tailor my tutoring sessions to the student's needs. We work on homework and supplementary materials for content areas in need of improvement. I take the time to understand why the student is struggling in particular areas and how we can create strategies for the student to use to succeed. I am very patient with my students, so they do not feel frustrated. The students I tutor have improved their grades by at least one letter grade and beyond. We set goals together that the student will work towards achieving.
