Tutoring Style and/or Experience
Hi! My name is Ms. Friend, and I would love the opportunity to work with your child to help them succeed in writing. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Journalism and Communications from the University of Florida in 2003. After writing for various newspapers as a professional journalist, I decided to switch from writing to teaching writing in 2003. For two years I taught Language Arts in an inner city school in downtown Fort Lauderdale. In my first year, I was able to increase the number of students who passed the state's standardized essay exam by 30%. In my second year, I had students who earned perfect scores on their essays. I understand the challenge and frustration students face when writing essays; therefore, I use a gentle approach to teaching writing. I help students break down the writing steps, organize their thoughts, and write stellar essays that are bursting with strong vocabulary and vivid descriptions. I now teach English for students grade 6 through 10 for an online school.
