Passionate and Experienced English/Language Arts Teacher--Developing Students into Excellent Readers and Writers!

Methodology

My tutoring approach is to first identify the specific goals of each student with a simple line of questioning--what are your academic and career aspirations? What do you love about reading and writing? What do you find is your biggest challenge? Based on this discussion, the student and I will generate an end goal, plan out what material we need to cover, and determine which skills need the most practice. I enjoy teaching students of many ages. I find I am an excellent fit for upper elementary and middle school-aged students.

Background

I am an experienced teacher currently working on his teacher certification. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Honors Humanities from Azusa Pacific University. After finishing my education I went on to teach language arts and history to 60 students each year as a lead teacher in a 5th-grade classroom. I love teaching reading and writing as much as I love the disciplines themselves.
