I love reading, writing and discussing literature! As a classroom teacher for more than 15 years, I have always found ways to get my students excited about reading, writing and analyzing literature. I make learning relevant,accessible and meaningful to students.
I make English lit (new term kids use today)!
I taught co-ed classes for more than 10 years, yet worked in all male/boy settings for more than 9. I truly enjoy working with young men because it is a challenge to get them to enjoy reading
( for the most part). I also work with girls, as well.
As a teacher I received awards for:
-improving students at least one grade level or more
-100% of my students moving one test band higher on standardized test
-improving male/boy enrollment into honors and Advanced Placement courses
-creativity and innovation for learning
Students that choose to work with me, can expect to have a great time while learning, find it easy to talk and gain understanding and most importantly, improve academically.
I look forward to helping my students enjoy boring literature, write amazing papers and analyze poetry-as well as help them get organized.
If you want someone that your student can relate to and make ensure they are learning while having a great time… I am the person.
You do not want the tutoring session to seem like punishment...if so most students will rebel.
Let’s work together for their success.
I enjoy seeing the students students make gains and enjoy learning.
Having Ms. Fletcher as a teacher truly taught me what accountability is. Despite whatever was going on in my life outside of the classroom, she instilled in me that I have to use those obstacles as motivation and not an excuse. Being her student came with never settling for anything less than greatness and always pushing to reach my maximum potential. To have someone that is just as invested in my life and education is a blessing that money can never buy, it’s something I will forever be thankful for.
She was able to give me critical feedback while reinforcing my strengths. She also helped me find creative ways of addressing my areas of need. I went from being am ESL student to editor of the newspaper she helped me get over my fear of writing. Every day I am thankful for the way she helped me!
She helped me improve my writing. Instead of correcting everything she asked questions to help me think about how to improve what I had already written.

I fell in love with teaching when I was 8 years old. I was always taking extra worksheets home and teaching my dolls. I remember having teachers that hated the profession and treated me rudely. At that point, I decided I would become a teacher to prove that you can have fun, be polite and learn at the same time. I can't watch a movie or listen to music without thinking -How can I use this in my classroom? I love it and know that all students can learn and can have fun doing it.
