EducationYork University, Liberal Arts majoring in English and History (2013)
Graduated with Honours, 3.7 GPA
ExperienceI am a York University graduate double majoring in ENGLISH and HISTORY. I have 9 years of both teaching and tutoring experience in HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH AND HISTORY, GRADE 7 AND 8 LANGUAGE ARTS AND HISTORY, and READING AND WRITING SKILLS FOR GRADES 2-6, as well as UNIVERSITY LITERATURE. My strengths are teaching ESSAY WRITING, GRAMMAR EDITING, and LITERARY ANALYSIS. I have read several of the NOVELS most English high school classes teach. I am a very enthusiastic and friendly tutor, but I am not afraid to let a student know when he or she is doing something wrong. I am looking forward to hearing from you. REFERENCES CAN BE MADE AVAILABLE IF NEEDED. I charge $40/hr for students outside Mississauga. I am willing to travel to Brampton, Etobicoke, Oakville, Burlington, Milton and parts of the GTA.
HobbiesHaving studied English and History, some of my favourite things to do are to read, watch plays, and watch a lot of Netflix. That last one might seem like I'm just at home watching TV, but I believe that any kind of writing--including television--can be studied and analyzed and is rich in creativity. I love to travel, and I'm a big 'story teller'. I find that sharing my own experiences through story telling gives students an appreciation for literature. I am passionate about teaching and literacy, otherwise I wouldn't have been doing it for the last 8 years and counting!
