English major college student and recent high school graduate with a gift for spelling, grammar and persuasive writing.

Methodology

Reading is one of the most important things a child can learn, and it can be almost impossible to catch up once you've fallen behind. Each year students are given a list of books they're expected to read by and/or during the next school year, and some of these, such as Their Eyes Were Watching God, stump even the most accomplished readers. Others, like To Kill A Mockingbird, contain many complex themes that may fly over a child's head. By sitting down with your student and helping guide them through their reading, prompting them to think about the characters' and author's motives, and encouraging them to think for themselves with open-ended questions and debates, I hope to instill in your student a confidence in, and a love for, reading.

Background

I am an 18-year-old high school graduate and AP student. I received an exemplary score on the writing/reading segment of the 2018 SAT (750) and have experience teaching children (ages 7-12) at summer camps.
