"I really like to help students reach their full potential by going over their weaknesses. I then use exercises to overcome those weaknesses until they become strengths.

"I really like to help students reach their full potential by going over their weaknesses. I then use exercises to overcome those weaknesses until they become strengths. I strive to make reading and writing fun by picking out books that students prefer and also taking suggestions about them about their favorite genres.

Also, having the student write their own stories can be an extremely rewarding experience. I don't require that every student do it but it can be extremely rewarding for both parties and I love to see the imagination.

Depending on the age and grade of the student I try to incorporate educational games when possible. Most of the students love the games and it's a fun way to learn.

Also, whenever possible I try to compare the cinematic version to the actual book we are reading. It's always fun and interesting to compare and contrast the same story in both mediums. It also gives a nice visual to a student that is struggling with a concept or setting in the book.

I have tutored for about three years during my time in California and tutored grades 1 through 9. I took a break to pursue other interests, but now I'm hungry to tutor and help students again. Love watching the light go on in a students mind when they truly understand something. In some ways I relearn as well, by discovering new books and different ways to utilize my teaching methods.

I have a B.A.A in Graphic Design but minored in Journalism. I've also proofed extensively for a local Newspaper.

I've written many short stories and essays during my time in and out of college. I genuinely care about the students ability to learn the material he or she reads, as a former young student.

I totally emphasize with the struggle that students go through when reading or writing. Whether it's understanding the reading material, vocab, grammar and punctuation I'll be with your every step of the way. I'm in your corner! As a practicing writer, I love the sense of completion when an essay or short story is communicated effectively." less...
