Reading and Writing are challenging skills - Let's work to improve together (Chicago)

Methodology

I view reading and writing as a complex set of skills encompassing everything from spelling and phonetics to critical analysis. Reading and writing are skills that can always be further developed - I become a better reader every time I practice and it is my goal to help you do the same.

I provide tutoring in reading and writing for students grades 4-12 and adult English Language Learners. Whether you need assistance mastering the fundamentals or are looking to sharpen your skills, I can help you develop the foundational skills needed to excel.

As a child (and even today) I struggled a great deal to learn the basic reading and writing skills that are essential to academic success. With time, practice, and the support of many excellent teachers I've been able to overcome many of the learning challenges I've faced.

Learning is a process that never truly ends. There are still aspect of reading and writing with which I struggle, but I find ways to improve every time I practice. My goal is to help you develop the ability to continue improving your reading and writing skills on your own.

(I can also offer assistance with math including pre-algebra, algebra 1, and geometry)

Background

I have worked with students one on one as well as in a classroom environment in Chicago Public Schools. I also tutored at my collage's writing center, assisting students with writing college level assignments.

Since graduating I have worked one on one with adult English Language Learners, largely focusing on reading and grammar.
