Experience

I am a tutor with extensive experience studying and teaching English. I completed my undergraduate studies at Reed College in Oregon and earned a master's degree in English and Literature at SUNY Binghamton in New York. I would like to pursue a PhD and eventually become a professor. I originally began as a Chemistry student, but I eventually decided to pursue a degree in Literature. I am comfortable tutoring students in Mathematics, English, and Literature. I am also able to help students prepare for standardized tests.My philosophy as a tutor is to emphasize effective communication. I have always been proficient in Math, and I possess an aptitude for being able to explain the necessary conceptual frameworks. My value as a tutor stems from the fact that I am enthusiastic about the subjects I teach. This enthusiasm helps me engage with my students. My emphasis on effective communication also allows me to offer students help with their public speaking and writing. In my free time, I enjoy reading, basketball, theatre, music, traveling, and Shakespeare. Shakespeare is my favorite author, and I actually had an article about his work published in a British journal. While Shakespeare is my favorite, I also enjoy studying other genres and time periods in English Literature.
