Private tutor in Denver, CO
University of Puget Sound - Bachelors, English Literature and American Politics
Tutoring English, speech, and social studies is truly fun! I graduated from the University of Puget Sound in 2009. It is an excellent college for the liberal arts. I majored in English literature and political science, earning a BA in both. Teach for America accepted me as a teacher so I headed to Denver and began to teach 7th grade composition. I have certification to teach English for grades 6-12, and spent two years teaching fundamentals that led to creating influential essays. When tutoring, I like to work on the construction of essays, analyzing literature, argumentation, and creative writing. I also use my teaching background to help students fulfill assignment requirements. Exam preparation strategies is another area that I help students master. A good number of students I worked with achieved solid scores on major tests like the ACT and the SAT. In addition to writing, I like public speaking. I used to compete in speech and debate both statewide and nationwide. Training students to become engaging public speakers excites me! Public speaking ties into my enjoyment of political science which I also tutor. I cover some sciences such as biology.During my free time, I like rugby, football, track, kayaking, painting, and reading.
