I had a lot of trouble learning to Read and Write, now I want to help you learn from my mistakes. (Chicago)

Methodology

I provide tutoring in reading and writing for students grades 2-12. Whether your student is struggling with the basics of reading and writing or they're looking to sharpen their writing in preparation for college I can help them develop the skills they'll need for a lifetime of success.

As a child I struggled a great deal to learn the basic reading and writing skills that are essential to academic success. With a lot of support and several excellent teachers I've been able to overcome the challenges I faced and I want to use my experiences to help your student do the same.

Background

I aim to support what students already know and help them develop their own ideas to foster a lifelong love of learning. I believe that the key to helping children learn to read and write is to teach them to express their own thoughts and ideas without fear of judgment.

My goal is for students to ask their own questions rather than just give answers.
