Private tutor in Longmont, CO
University of Puget Sound - BA, Literature , Northwestern University - MS, Secondary Education - English
I am a graduate of the University of Puget Sound and Northwestern University. My experience as an educator began during my undergraduate education, when I served at my college's writing center as a writing advisor. I have also tutored students preparing for the ACT. Most recently, I spent five years as a high school English teacher and tutor. I am looking forward to getting back into tutoring to help high school and college students achieve their academic goals.As a teacher and tutor, I believe it is incredibly important to take the time to determine each student's preferred learning style. I use a variety of teaching techniques, and I strive to find the right one for every student. I love to work one-on-one with students, and I encourage students to find ways to learn the information they need to know in a way that meets their needs. I am most fond of helping students polish their college admission essays. I believe that assisting students in developing the skills to communicate their ideas in a clear and unique way will continue to benefit them throughout their lives. I am also capable of helping students in reading, writing, literature, editing, and related AP- and IB-level courses. I enjoy helping students prepare for the ACT, PSAT, and SAT, too. When I'm not teaching or tutoring, I like to read, hike, and knit.
