Although I am new to HeyTutor.com, I am very experienced when it comes to teaching. As a firm believer in education being a top priority, I am currently a full-time substitute at Ridley Middle School where I am pursuing a career as an English teacher. After earning a 3.9 cumulative GPA in all classes during my undergraduate years, I graduated West Chester University May 2016 Summa Cum Laude: highest honors. Due to my academic achievement, I also received a total of 5 scholarships and earned membership into two very well known honor societies: Pi Lambda Theta National Honor Society for Educators and Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society. I know that hard work and dedication can truly pay off. My goal is to apply my knowledge and dedicate time to students who need help with the subject of English, especially in the area of writing. By encouraging students to realize their own potential while making learning fun, I have been and will be able to continue to help them improve their grades.
Though students may be looking to improve their grades in English, they will also be able to improve their grades in other subject areas as well when a writing or reading assignment is required. For example, a science teacher may assign a reading assignment from a textbook where students must summarize what they read so that they understand the material. My methods of teaching will not only help students in an English class, but in all subject areas. I provide assignments where students have fun while learning, and are not overwhelmed by the material. By providing progress reports, students are able to see their progress over the course of our tutoring sessions.
Because of my passion for education, I will often ask students and parents for feedback to ensure that the student is receiving high quality tutoring sessions. I am flexible with time and will offer make-up classes, but I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy.
Although I do have a comfortable and quiet place to tutor students, I am happy to travel to another location where it is convenient for both the students and parents.
I look forward to hearing from you and I am happy to help you achieve success in all of your studies!

This tutor is very good at preparing material for classes and highly skilled at teaching in general. She almost seems like an actual school teacher, due to her professionalism. There doesn't seem to be anything negative about her teaching and I think it will stay that way as long as my learning experience goes.a year ago
