I recently graduated from the Macaulay Honors College at Baruch College with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature. My educational background gives me a strong foundation in the subject I wish to teach. I am committed to the study of English and I plan to pursue a PhD in English and ultimately use that to become a full-time teacher. I am undecided as to which grade level I plan to teach. I believe that fostering strong written and verbal communication skills among younger generations is invaluable for a couple of important reasons. First, because I see reading and writing as incredible tools for self expression and exploration, and second, because I recognize the necessity of well-developed written communication skills for all kinds of professional paths. Unfortunately, in my college career I witnessed classmates struggle with basic writing and reading comprehension skills because they did not learn fundamental ELA skills in grade school and high school. As a tutor, I can work to solve this problem, and equip students with the tools necessary to succeed in Reading and Writing.
In my experience, an engaging instructor can make a world of difference to a student who is struggling to perform at his or her full potential. In my work as a tutor, I have helped students who claimed ELA was their least favorite subject not only improve their academic performance but also develop an interest in Reading and Writing. I love seeing students succeed and I have the patience it takes to meet students where they are as well as the confidence to firmly guide them to where they need to be!
