I believe that students learn best when their personal life experiences are valued and incorporated into their education. I help students improve their reading and writing skills while uncovering key literary concepts that reveal ways texts can be meaningful to them.

MA in English
I enjoy teaching English concepts through storytelling and analogies. I use the Socratic method to make sessions into an engaging conversation instead of a boring lecture so I can better understand my students. I love helping students improve their writing and reading comprehension, especially when they previously found these areas challenging.

I enjoy teaching writing not just because it’s a chance to help students craft better sentences and narratives, but also because it’s an opportunity to inspire students to notice—and wrestle with— more of the world. A piece of writing resonates because of deliberate choices made by the author, and I believe feedback should empower a student to express themselves fully (and coherently).

As students progress through elementary school up to higher education, they're regularly tested on their grasp of English. Our English tutors don't just want to improve your spelling and help you master vocabulary. They'll help you to fall in love with the works of Jane Austen, explore the deeper meanings of George Orwell's 1984, and be able to read between the lines of a Shakespeare sonnet.
While there are some basic rules to learn and follow, English is often about being expressive. Our tutors will work with you to discover your creative writing triggers and teach you how to articulate your ideas. You'll discover how to develop a structure that will help you breeze through any English test. Even the most daunting English assignments can be broken down into component parts.

My daughter cried that she didn’t want a tutor before our first Gooroo writing session. But she had the most wonderful experience with her Gooroo tutor. Her tutor made it fun and exciting and my daughter asked right away when she was coming back. The tutor is very personable and understands exactly where and what my daughter needs help with. I highly recommend Gooroo!
