    • Organized: Each lesson will be time efficient, informative, and organized. I can also help students come up with a way to organize their writing and study methods.

Available Tutoring:

  • Reading / Writing / Literature: Comfortable with any grade level; can help edit essays, help with reading assignments and/or analysis, help with grammar assignments. 
    • Class 1: Essay Workshop -- I encourage students to bring in assigned prompts and I will help them brainstorm and edit their essays. If the student is not currently writing an essay, we can come up with our own prompts based on an area of interest (creative writing, research paper, historical writing, etc.) and then produce and edit an essay together. I am excited to help students learn the fundamentals of writing while also encouraging them to find their voice. Writing applies to every career path, so I believe it is an essential skill for every student!
    • Class 2: Analytic Essays from Novels -- As a kid, I would spend hours reading under my covers at night. I hope to extend this passion for books and literature to any student. Students are encouraged to bring books from school or their favorite novel (anything from Goodnight Moon to The Great Gatsby), and we will unpack the steps that go into writing an analytic essay from scratch.
