Tutoring

Reasons to hire a tutor

Any student who meets one or more of the following descriptions could benefit from tutoring:

Scores lower than his/her peers on assignments repeatedly
Feels lost when his/her teacher explains concepts
Feels unmotivated to achieve greater success in school
Finds the class too easy and feels he/she is learning nothing
Has a desire to strengthen his/her writing ability
Feels he/she could improve in writing, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills
Struggles with organization and time management
With so many different levels in one classroom, the teacher often gears lessons towards the majority. With a tutor, you get one-on-one catered help to fit your needs—whether that means guiding you through your current class work or guiding you to understand higher-level concepts.

My Credentials

I graduated college with honors and scored in the top 3% on the English Praxis exam. After graduation, I spent eight years teaching various levels of 8th and 10th grade English: regular, honors, and gifted and talented. While working at a local junior high, the principal called me the best English teacher she has ever seen; parents called in to praise my methods; and students reported an increase in writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills. Furthermore, I taught professional development courses to other teachers on various topics: critical reading strategies, the art of teaching writing, and student engagement.

Essay Help

This is for students who don’t need long-term tutoring, but just want help on a specific writing assignment. We can work on deciphering and understanding the prompt, brainstorming ideas, crafting the essay, and/or editing and polishing the essay either in person or online.

Online Tutoring

I now offer online tutoring for students anywhere in the US. (English/Language Arts grades 6th–adult and 6th/7th grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra 1.)

Homeschool English

I offer in-person homeschooling in English grades 8th–12th only. (This is for parents looking to outsource and co-teach English to their homeschooled child.)

Success Stories

In my transition from public educator to private tutor, I have already experienced some great success.

A 9th grade English student went from an F to a B- in 2 months time as we worked on organization and time management skills.
A 6th grade student who struggled with writing was named the class VIP and recognized for her writing growth and went from a D to a B. In 7th grade, she ended up with an A in Language Arts.
An honors student who struggled with writing passed his AP exam with a 4 after receiving a 2 on the practice AP test, and he went from a B- in English to an A.
A college student passed his entrance exam with a 90% after scoring low on the English portion of the practice entrance exam.
A Pre-Algebra student went from an F to a C and began participating more in class, understanding the material, and taking better notes.
A 7th grade math student went from a low C to a high B, feeling more confident with math tests.
