Hi there! My name is Aartee, Im a sophomore at Temple University, and I absolutely love literature, writing, and grammar. My love of English started when I was young; my parents fostered an early appreciation of reading from when I was three years old. I quickly became an avid bookworm, and I would read anything I could get my hands on. My affinity for reading followed me throughout my education, English has always been my favorite subject, and I took A.P. Writing and Composition and Advanced Literature in high school. I went to a college preparatory high school, so I am well versed in ACT and SAT standardized test prep. I started Temple University in the fall of 2016 as an English major, and have taken four college level literature classes to date.
My experience with teaching began in high school. During my sophomore year of high school as part of my Girl Scout Gold Award I visited my grade school to teach students about the environment through a hands-on garden planting project. I worked with preschoolers to eighth graders, and it was through this project that I discovered I wanted to teach. Towards the end of my senior year of high school, I taught eighth grade students English and Math through a high school literacy program. After graduating high school, I took a year off in between graduating high school and starting college, and throughout that year I freelance tutored high school aged students in ACT and SAT prep. My most recent teaching experience has been with Temple Universitys Jumpstart Readers Program during the Spring 2017 semester. I volunteered with this program twice a week at a local preschool, and worked with students on fundamental literacy skills. This coming Fall 2017 semester I will be serving as a Jumpstart AmeriCorps member in between class.
I am a dedicated and passionate tutor who understands the value of patience and communication. I have worked with a myriad of different students, and I recognize that different students have different needs, and that no two students learn the same way. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and I would love to be your tutor! :)
