Patient and Individualized One-on-One Mentoring in Speech and Creative Writing (Philadelphia or Remote)

Methodology

My teaching approach is individualized, empowering, and patient. I have experience helping students who struggle with high levels of anxiety that hinders their confidence and ability to learn, particularly in writing. I have developed a wide-range of creative teaching methods and activities that are highly engaging and helpful. I have great empathy for young writers and a keen eye for individualizing teaching methods. I have intensive experience in inquiry-based learning and am always learner-centered. I see tutoring as a relationship and a collaborative process of nurturing the student's development. I work with people of all ages. My goal is to help students become more self-actualized and develop a stronger sense of ownership of their own education.

Background

Judy has three years of experience as a speaking and writing mentor in the Transformative Speaking Program at Hampshire College. Specifically, she has experience working with first-year college students. She has also worked with high school students on college admissions essays in a federal college-prep program. Her college senior thesis, a collection of twenty-two pieces in non-fiction, fiction, prose, poems, theory, and visual art recently caught the attention of the creative writing committee at Hampshire. Judy was selected as the recipient winner of the Sandol Stoddard Scholarship For Gifted Undergraduate Writers, an annual award given to the best creative writer of the graduating class.
