I am patient, creative and friendly. Many of my students tell me that I explain concepts more effectively than their teachers. I am available weekdays or weekends, days or nights, throughout the entire year. In addition to teaching in person, I also use Skype, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, Appear.in, interactive whiteboards, attachments (PDF, Word, Excel), and Slack, a remote desktop program.
Each student has unique needs and I try to focus my sessions on meeting those specific needs in a thorough yet encouraging manner. I teach a wide distribution of levels from Junior High through Graduate School. Over the years, I have taught a number of students for whom English was not their first language.
After receiving my help, all my former students received either an "A" in the subject they were struggling with or boosted their grade by at least 2 grade levels. I have also helped students earn admission to the colleges of their choice by assisting with admissions essays.
I most often work with students who struggle to respond to writing prompts from their English classes. Literary analysis and arguments (researched or not researched) are my specialties, though not the only types of academic writing I can help with. My approach is collaborative.
I approach each lesson by first allowing the student to explain what they already know and what they expect to learn. From there, I design a customized plan based on the student's specific needs. I try to engage students and make sure their questions are answered sufficiently by the end of the lesson.
I have an MFA in poetry, a BFA in English, and a CELTA certificate, along with teaching endorsements in English, ESL, and GT (gifted and talented).

I like to work together when correcting work and have an open dialogue instead of returning work with notes.
It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE.
I offer lessons primarily to high school and college students enrolled in writing and literature classes, but I am also happy to help students compose and edit written work in other areas if it does not require that I have expert knowledge on the subject.

My teaching method is well-rounded and accommodating to all learners. I base my classes on overall knowledge, understanding, and application. I approach each topic by learning what the student knows and guiding my instruction to meet and exceed their needs.
I love teaching, and appreciate how a relationship can be built and the lesson can be customized when you are tutoring one-on-one or with a small group. I have seen that this attention gives the student an opportunity to express confusion about or mastery of the topic and be seen as a developing individual. I value the human side of education and do not just see it as an industry.
