Experienced English Teacher and Tutor looks to give great lessons to kids.

Methodology

I teach to the standards and curriculum but with a special emphasis on nurturing individual student's respective voices and talents. Following that I always keep my approach flexible and myself approachable as the only bad question is the one not asked.

Background

I am a former middle school English teacher with a Bachelors and Masters in same. I've tutored in English and test prep and other related subjects for years and look forward to more teaching and making it fun as well.
