UW Psychology Graduate and Certified Behavior Technician

I love reading and studying psychology and I also love analyzing various types of films and videogames. I write short stories, poems, and scripts on the side. I love the DC universe and my favorite superhero is (surprise) Batman! I love to teach new concepts and helping students through difficult problems, I live for the AHA! moment! I have experience working with kids with disabilities and have been a certified behavior technician for about a year.

UCF Master's Degree with 15+ years of tutoring experience

Education has always been a big part of my life. In grade school, my teachers would often ask me to work with other students in class who needed assistance with the current lesson. This gift of being able to help others resonated with me and I realized very quickly that everyone does not learn in the same way. In high school, I volunteered with students with special needs and discovered there are many ways to communicate and teach. At San ... See more

Why You Need a Literature Tutor

By definition, literature refers to written works, especially those considered of superior or lasting artistic merit. The study of literature is incredibly important but at the very least, it improves vocabulary, reading, and has a direct impact on writing skills. Literary study more specifically involves reading novels, stories, poems, plays, and essays, and developing in-depth thought and analysis regarding what you have read from the text. Literature plays a different role than any other subjects because it gives students an opportunity to think on a different level while also expressing themselves intellectually. This increases the level of verbal communication skills, in-depth analysis, and of course their ability to write strong academic papers. They can learn what acceptable writing looks like versus writing that will never pass or may get them into trouble for plagiarism. If you would like to tune into the world of sublime literature and escape your reality, team up with a literature tutor today.

Literature is something that we explore at all levels of our educational career and it carries over even once we have graduated. If your child is enrolled in school and currently having issues with their literature assignments, literature tutoring will be a tremendous help. As the saying goes, “today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” If you want your child to be set up for success later on in life it is important that they are able to read and comprehend. As mentioned, this is not a skill that is going to go away. At every level of education, they will be forced to dive into books and break it down then vocalize this in class as well as in the form of essays.

To be able to work with a private literature tutor is the best way for your child to start picking up the necessary skills. Your tutor will also be able to show your student how fun reading can be if they understand what they are taking in. By teaching in terms that make sense to your student they will be able to find the joy in this and will start wanting to pick up books on their own. For many students, it is simply frustrating to sit down and read because there are so many external stimuli that can distract them. When they are able to block this out they will be learning self-control skills that will carry over for the rest of their life.

In high school, students begin to see that reading is even more important than it has ever been. In middle school, your child may have read a few books for class but none more in depth than what they will be doing in high school. They will be challenged and because of this what may have once been easy is now difficult. Active reading is not something we are all fantastic at doing, but with the right help, it can be an acquired skill. The main reason why students struggle with literature in high school is that they used to just have to read and maybe write a paragraph or two. Now they find themselves having to write essays that are pages long about a single book. This can raise anxiety while your child is learning as the stakes are now higher. This will cause them to focus much less, thus not retaining what they need to in order to write assigned papers. Our reading and comprehension tutors will eliminate any of this stress so that they can start to get their ideas down in a clear and concise manner. This is something that will carry over to the college level when your child enrolls.


If you are struggling with anything that is involved with the subject “I need a literature tutor” has gone through your mind at some point. But you will not simply be getting someone who can help you read. You will be working with someone who can help you give in-depth critiques on some of the most influential pieces of art on the planet. Your essay writing tutor can provide brainstorming tools for you as well that will help you with any essay or paper you have to write. These skills will be transferrable to several other courses. Whenever you have any writing to do you will use the tools your literature tutor provided.

The at-home-classroom is where not only formal education begins, but the love of learning is formed. Every child has the right to be taught in a way in which they are afforded the opportunity to observe and interact with core subjects. Students should be engaged during the lesson that they will be inspired further investigations and explorations into the content.

Benefits of Hiring a Literature Tutor

If you struggle to interpret great works of literature or just have questions about what you've read, a literature tutor will have your back. The great thing about finding a literature tutor outside of class is that they will give the chance to focus on the areas that are difficult for you. An English tutor can help you connect with that book in ways that you may not have been able to on your own. Our literature tutors have several literature references under their belt which is an advantage for you because the more texts you can reference the better you will do on essays, exams, college documents, and even in some career fields.

Although it has to do with the arts, literature is something that carries over to several other careers. Being able to write in a way that makes sense to people and conveys a clear message is something you can learn from by reading literature. You will be able to understand how to write in several different styles that will appeal based on what you are trying to say. But in order to get to that level, you must first understand what you are reading and then be able to vocalize what it is you want to say about the literature.

Being in a college-level literature course brings its own set of unique challenges that other courses do not have. Mostly it is the amount of reading that you have to do in order to keep up in class. Your professor has a syllabus and in it, there are several pieces of literature which essentially means you are reading every night. Not everyone is used to reading this much and it is easy to take a day off. But when you miss a class you fall behind and start to miss vital parts of the story. Then you are forced to try and play catch up by reading dozens of pages.

By force-feeding yourself this information, you are setting yourself up to fail. You have to stay organized with your reading and keep up with what is going on in class. In several literature courses, you will be graded on how you participate in class. Your teacher will actively be looking to see if you are contributing to the classroom discussion. If you have not done the reading it will be abundantly clear when you get called on in class. Also, if you do not want to speak up because you are not sure if your interpretation is correct or will be understood, your grade will also suffer.

Our tutors will be able to work with you and have conversations with you before you have to go into class. This way you can bounce any ideas off your tutor before going to class and risking embarrassing yourself. Your tutor will act as a safety bumper so you can have a conversation between the two of you, in a comfortable setting, which will have you prepared to take on your group discussion. This way you can be vocal in class and say what you are feeling without having to be worried about being judged. Eventually, you will not need the help of your tutor and will just be comfortable in your own skin and ability to interpret great pieces of literature.

If you have been contemplating and thinking "where do I find a qualified literature tutor near me?" or, "is literature tutoring near me something I can afford?" HeyTutytutor is here to provide the educational support you need at a rate that doesn't put a dent in your wallet. HeyTutor has a broad range of passionate literature tutors who are waiting to share all this subject matter has to offer you as a student. Our tutors know how to proofread your papers, help you study for exams, and assist you in interpreting what you're reading.

Our hundreds of professional tutors who are hyperlocal can be a benefit to you no matter what level of education you currently are in. They will make learning fun so that you no longer feel that reading literature is a bore. Literature is something that was created to entertain us, but right now all you know is you have to read the book to get a grade. If you approach it in this manner it will not be any fun to you and your only motivation will be to pass a specific class. When you are matched with our tutors they will help you see the pleasure in literature. It could not be simpler, get started today.
