Private tutor in Denver, CO
Metropolitan State College of Denver - BA, English Literature , University of Colorado Denver - MA, English Literature
I earned my master's degree in English Literature from the University of Colorado, where I also was given the opportunity to assist in teaching Composition courses. Through this position, I gained experience planning lessons, lecturing to the class, and meeting individually with students who needed more assistance. I strongly believe that much of the best learning happens when students are able to meet with the instructor one on one and receive lessons that are more personalized to their learning style and skill level. This also allows for a level of comfort between student and teacher that makes the process more enjoyable. I am comfortable tutoring subjects from all across the English spectrum. My favorite subsection is Medieval Literary Analysis. In that sort of lesson, my strategy is usually to break down literature passages into smaller, more understandable portions. I like the challenge of taking old pieces of literature and putting them into terms that young students can relate to and understand. It is my philosophy that education provides a foundation for a good life, and I try to pass on my desire for learning to every student I work with. When not tutoring, I enjoy doing yoga, playing video games, and reading anything I can get my hands on.
