I am a rising senior at Washington University in St. Louis pursuing a Bachelor's in English Literature. I also have a minor in Educational Studies, as I plan to become a high school English teacher. I plan to go to graduate school to get my Master's in teaching English literature and Special Education 7-12. I have a lot of interests, but my favorite things to do are ply golf, run, sing, listen to music, and read. I started a girls' golf team at my high school, and I ran cross country! I also love to bake. Most recently I tried out a recipe for cinnamon rolls and it was AMAZING! My favorite book - it's really hard to pick - is the Great Gatsby, and my favorite movie is Shawshank Redemption.
I have a lot of experience tutoring Pre-K, elementary and middle school children in phonics, reading, writing, science, and math. In high school, I spent almost everyday tutoring children in these subjects at a nearby elementary school. Recently, I helped teach a young boy with speech delays how to read and write. I'm really passionate about teaching students not only how to read and write well, but also to enjoy doing it! I also love coaching children in math and science to help them learn the material and feel confident about it! I am very comfortable assigning homework for different subjects and different grade levels. If I had to choose, I'd say that my favorite subject to tutor is reading. I believe reading is an essential, life-long skill, and I love supporting students as they become stronger, more passionate readers.
Additionally, since I am an English major, I am very familiar with a wide variety of literature - I have taken classes about American, British, and Postcolonial literature, to name a few! I am more than able to tutor students of all ages (elementary to college (and beyond!)).
I am extremely comfortable helping students struggling with the reading and writing sections of the SAT and the SAT Literature Subject Test.
I am very skilled at writing essays, and I am passionate about grammar. I can help with general essay writing, or more specifically with college essay writing!
I look forward to working with you!
