Hi! I recently completed my masters degree in Literature at Yale University and I have 4 years of experience teaching writing to middle school and high school students. I've also taught college writing courses for 2 years. I'm a professional writer myself and currently work for a literary agency reading manuscripts. I would be thrilled to work with you in any of the following ways:
Essay writing (persuasive, literary analysis, research etc)
Preparing for tests
I charge $25 an hour and am happy to host tutoring sessions at my house, at the library and if you live close by I'm happy to come to you!
I love working with students of all ages to help them feel confident as students, readers, writers, and communicators.
Sophie was incredibly poised and knowledgeable while tutoring. I was able to significantly improve my writing skills and understand some of the grammar rules I had been struggling with in school. She was a fantastic help while applying to colleges across the country and I felt I was a better candidate because of her teaching.
Sophie was an excellent English teacher. Class was always fun, but she wasn't afraid to push me when she knew I could be pushed. Her selection of texts was varied and her analysis was interesting in depth. Overall very pleased!
Sophie is excellent English tutor that my son ever had. Extremely helpful and insightful.
She pushes you but makes the course interesting in fun. She’s an inspiration as a teacher and she’ll inspire all her students
When we first meet we'll chat for a bit so I can gain a better understanding of what you're hoping to get from your tutoring experience. We'll set some reachable and quantifiable goals and devise a schedule and plan that works for you and your schedule!
