I am currently completing my fourth year of the B.A. / M.A. Combined Program in English and the Teacher Preparation Program at Stony Brook University. With a strong background in literature, composition, and teaching methods, I believe that I am prepared for the dynamic and exciting challenges of tutoring students for their English classes. Through my coursework, I have designed lesson plans based on the Common Core State Standards. During my field experience in diverse Long Island school districts, I observed engaging lessons and had the privilege of observing the administration and grading of the English Regents Exam. As President and Co-Founder of the Stony Brook Book Club, I led weekly discussions and created a comfortable and intellectually stimulating environment. As a teaching assistant in the Massapequa Public Schools Summer Music Program, I taught students new skills and concepts while encouraging their continued growth. I believe that every student can find a book he enjoys and with the right practice, can express himself through writing. I love to read, bake, and scrapbook in my spare time.
