I hold a current certificate in English Language Arts education (FLDOE #1166116, exp. 2023) and have six years in-classroom teaching experience. I also have several years experience with ESL and adult education. If you are struggling to meet benchmarks, give me a call. All sessions are designed to address individual student needs, not pre-canned worksheets or lessons. Have you been unsatisfied with commercial tutoring? Give me a call.
I enjoy teaching writing and reading because of the world of information these skills unlock.
It was the big blessing studing with her
She was patient, helpful, has a sense of humor and genuinely wants her clients to succeed.
All tutoring begins with an interactive assessment (not a TEST) of the student's current abilities and a discussion of the student's goals related to the application and use of English language arts skills.
I hold a current Florida DOE certificate to teach secondary English Language Arts (grades 6-12, #1166116, exp. 2023). I am also an experienced adult educator. I have been a freelance writer, editor, journalist, and writing coach for more than 15 years.
I charge $25 per hour of student contact time. This is inclusive of all expenses. I do not charge separately for travel, or planning time.
I started teaching as a writing coach working in community writing groups (adults). I started classroom teaching in 2012 after spending time as a substitute teacher.
I have worked with students from age 12 to 18, and adults up to age 50.
Recently I tutored a Pakistani immigrant in English compositional writing and enjoyed the discussion of perspective and point of view both as cultural issues and how to handle that in her writing.
A tutor that is the right fit for you should always be "checking in" with you about your sense of your own development, asking questions and offering feedback that give you a sense of your progress toward YOUR goals, not just some standardized benchmark. You should feel enriched by your tutoring, not like a slave to practice.
You should think about your goals beyond "good grades." English is a skill that unlocks the world. What do you want to unlock with your skills? What job(s) do you want? What will you hope to use your improved skills to achieve for yourself?
