...I am interested in students with a focused goal in mind. Tutoring is client guided, meaning you have to know what you want. I can help with the "how" of reaching your goal.I have a bachelors degree in History from Cleveland State University.
...I love being in the classroom, but it is nothing like the kind of relationship that can be established with a tutor, working one-on-one and developing a student specific course of study. So, while at CCSJ, I also began working in the school's student success center, tutoring between 10 and 20 hours a week. My GRE score is a combined 335, placing me in the top 2% of all test takers.

...I have also written numerous lesson plans for students from K-12, mainly geared for students in CPS schools. I have over fifteen years of experience in grading student papers, both in undergraduate and graduate school. I grade not only for content, but also grammar, spelling, style, and the logical coherence of the student's writing.
...I student taught fourth and fifth grade students and have worked with 2nd, 4th, and 6th grade students for the past year at my current school. I am certified in Orton-Gillingham reading instruction and received training in reading instruction as part of my masters degree. I have a masters degree in Special Education and have worked as a special education teacher for five years.

...As an English teacher, a large part of my curriculum involves writing. Sometimes this means spending a whole unit on writing a complete essay, while other times it means answering short written answer questions. No matter what type of writing I'm teaching, my experience in this subject and my passion for literacy makes this one of my favorite things to teach!
