"My name is Courtney and I have been a teacher for over 10 years, now. I have taught in public schools, private schools, and online, so I am familiar with many different modes of teaching. I've taught many different aspects of English, including, but not limited to: Composition, creative writing, British literature, world literature, ancient literature, medieval literature, and more. I've also taught all grades--from 7th grade up to 12th grade. Also, I have a Master's degree in Education, with a cognate in English.

Teaching is my passion. I know it is what I was meant to do in this life and tutoring is just an extension of that. I love being able to help students one-on-one, in specific areas, and help them improve. Whether it is learning how to understand tough reading passages, or learning how to write an essay or paper, I truly enjoy teaching others how to accomplish these things. Furthermore, I want students to learn how to enjoy learning.

I have experience in many different fields of English. I've taught the following courses: Composition, world literature, British literature, American literature, ancient literature, medieval literature, and creative writing. My Master's degree is in education, with a cognate in English. Through my undergraduate and Master's degree, I concentrated my studies in Shakespearean courses and also African-American works.

I am currently teaching ancient literature at a local private school. Teaching the ancients has been such a wonderful experience. For many people, the Classics are intimidating; but with proper teaching, they do not have to be. I am familiar with the works of Socrates, Plato, Ovid, Homer, Virgil, Sophocles, and more.

If you are looking for someone who enjoys teaching, especially writing and literature, please contact me for more information! While I do teach during the day, my after-school hours and weekends are flexible. I WANT to help you!" less...
