ExperienceI earned my Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and Literature from Bard College. I went on to attend Columbia University's Teachers College, where I received my master's degree in teaching English. After graduation, I taught English at a middle school in the Bronx. I currently live in Massachusetts, where I teach English to 8th graders.My focus as an educator is to help students get their ideas onto paper. I provide them with tips and strategies to make the writing process easier. I enjoy watching my students learn and grow, and love to see the eagerness with which they write once they have mastered the process. I have taught English to students ranging from elementary schoolers to 9th and 10th graders. My main focus, however, is on middle school students.I offer assistance with a variety of English classes. There is much more than Reading and Literature! I can instruct students in Poetry Writing, Persuasive Writing, and British Literature. I can also help them with Creative Writing, Expository Writing, Shakespeare, and Literary Analysis. I also help students who are preparing for the ACT, CLEP, PARCC, PSAT, and SAT with study skills and strategies for the Reading and Writing portion of these exams. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, practicing yoga, and visiting museums.
