Ivy League English Tutoring
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.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
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!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Masters Degree in Literature and Religion from Yale University
Masters Degree in Poetry from Brigham Young University
Bachelors Degree in English Literature from Brigham Young University
Two years experience as an English teacher/mentor at Fusion Academy.
Two years experience teaching Writing Composition and Creative writing to college freshman.
I have essays, book reviews, poems and short stories published in several publications.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've worked with students from age 11 to 25! I have lots of experience working with students who struggle in school whether because of learning differences or anxiety and depression. I believe in meeting a student where they're at and working to succeed from there!
