I started my teaching career as a high school English teacher in Chicago. I taught for three years and absolutely loved it. I then completed graduate school to earn my Masters in Literacy in order to become a Reading Specialist, which I did for three years. In addition, I went back to school again for my endorsements in English as a Second Language and Special Education. I now work as Director of a program at a private suburban high school. I have done private tutoring for the last eight 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. Furthermore, I have also done ACT/ SAT test prep to prepare students for the rigor of standardized testing.
