About this tutor

I am a certified educator in Connecticut. I have passed my Praxis exam (5039) and have my 7-12th grade certification (015) in English. I have received my bachelor's in English and my master's degree in teaching, both from Quinnipiac University. During my graduate year, I was in Quinnipiac's Master of Arts in Teaching program. I graduated with a 3.74 GPA in my undergraduate year and a 3.95 GPA in my graduate year.

I was a substitute teacher and student-teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. During this time, I have been able to become proficient in using Zoom to deliver lessons to students due to COVID-19. I am also Google Classroom-knowledgeable. 

I was invited to join Sigma Tau Delta during my undergraduate career. Sigma Tau Delta is a nationally-recognized English honor society.

My experiences with both English and teaching make me well-suited to tutor your child and help them catch up to where they need to be at their grade level. 



Up until I was 17-years-old, I wanted to be a veterinarian. I strongly disliked school until I met a teacher who changed my life. She inspired me to become an educator just like her and now I am able to give back to other students and motivate them just like she did for me.

    The online tutoring was great! Ms. Acosta was very professional and demonstrated a great amount of patience with my son, who is dyslexic. The distance learning due to COVID-19 was difficult for my son but the one-on-one sessions with Ms. Acosta got him back on track. I recommend her to anyone and everyone!


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first step is assessing where the student is at in relation to their grade level. This can be achieved through either past performance exams done by previous tutors and through said student's school or done with a performance exam given by myself.

Once I assess where the student is at, we will begin working on the skills they need to improve on.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

BA in English from Quinnipiac University ('19)

MA in Teaching from Quinnipiac University ('20)

Passed the Praxis 5039 exam

Completed 7-12th grade 015 teaching certification.
