I have taught high school English for 14 years on the North Shore and I love it! I know first-hand what students need to do to be successful at the middle and high school levels. I also understand the amazing difference one-on-one attention can make when it comes to better understanding literature and the writing process.
I attended Wheaton College (Massachusetts) where I majored in English literature and minored in secondary education. I also earned my Masters degree in English at Salem State University and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study from UMASS Lowell.
I am excited to work with you! :)

I usually like to speak with a new student and their parent to get an idea of current abilities, goals, and vision for what you want to get out of the tutoring process.

I student taught in college and began teaching right out of college. I knew I wanted to teach for a while and when I took some education courses in college, I loved them! I love working with kids and I love trying to come up with creative ways to learn.
I have taught all levels of students in my teaching career, and have taught 8th grade, 9th grade, and 10th grade. For private tutoring, I have worked with high school freshmen, middle schoolers, and a fifth grader.
If you are looking to understand the writing process more than you currently do, I can definitely help! I can break down the process and the structure of an essay so it is something you can apply to any future assignment. I can help you select and integrate effective quotes to your writing, develop a powerful thesis statement, and even just proofread and revise.
We can work through a challenging text and learn ways to move past the surface meanings and find the more abstract.
1. What am I currently doing well?
2. What do I see as my areas for improvement?
3. What could I do more/better to improve?
4. What can the teacher do to help me learn more effectively?
