5 years experience high school teacher offering ELA, SAT or ACT prep students

Methodology

My teaching methodology depends on the needs of the student. Since each student is unique in their requirements for success, I meet with every student and determine how they learn best and what they need to accomplish. Using this data and information, I design a course that is suitable for them.

Background

I am an English teacher with five years of experience, currently in Cleveland public schools looking to help struggling students succeed, challenge gifted students, aid creative students with creative writing ideas or help prepare students for tests. I have helped many students formerly failing gain access to college.
