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.

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 cater my lessons and tutoring approach to the specific needs of each student. For paper writing, I like to talk about ideas and essay structure before a student puts pen to paper. I believe the most effective way of reviewing literature is to think about how certain themes relate to the story as a whole.

Some children love to bury their heads in a book, while to others reading is about as appealing as a plate of broccoli. We're here to make reading palatable to even the most book-averse student, helping them to prepare for the various reading tests they’ll face from kindergarten to college.
The first step in teaching someone to love to read is to discover a way to spark their imagination. Rather than launching in with the works of Shakespeare or Faulkner, our tutors work with you or your child on areas they're interested in, naturally weaving in fundamental concepts to develop skills in phonics and fluency along the way.
As well as helping you academically, reading has a number of proven health benefits such as improving mental health and helping to reduce the likelihood of developing cognitive disorders in later life. Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Mark Zuckerberg have all evangelized about their joy of reading. We promise an approach to reading tutoring that's perfectly attuned to your grade, learning style and educational targets.
