Tutor-Literature and Language Arts/Essays/Writing/College Applications

I am a dynamic, approachable, and experienced tutor working in reading and writing for the past 8 years in varying grades and skill sets. I have also worked in school administration in Marin in the elementary, middle, and high school level. I have experience in composition as well as reading comprehension with experience working with students with language processing challenges as well as dyslexia. At the middle school level I am familiar with grade level objectives as students approach high school and at the high school level I am aware of the the critical thinking objectives that are crucial to college matriculation. Other than the nuts and bolts, my approach is creative and largely through a conversational approach. For many students, the page is a place they get lost so absorbing and reusing words is a challenge. Through embracing creativity and supplementing the class curriculum I can help students both absorb the information as well as gain the confidence to embrace language as their own. It would not be strange to walk in and find your child using Mad Libs or acting out scenes from a story. I try to use visuals as well, charts, graphs, and "linear language and thinking equations" to appeal to different kinds of learners. I have used these approaches at my summer camp, Quills Creative Writing Camp and seen over the course of a week students transform their relationship with literature and language arts. From my experience, this approach allows students to confidently approach their studies and see improvement in their overall communication and schoolwork. Due to the diversity of my experience, I am available for different services including: middle school literature and language arts tutoring, essay composition tutoring at both middle and high school level, high school or college application essay tutoring, and creative writing tutoring (which can help support overall language arts improvement). I can be available for regular and repeating tutoring services, or for special projects or essays. I am passionate about individualized learning and approaching tutoring in a creative way that works best for the student; nothing is better than seeing a student learn to love a subject that was once challenging.
