Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have experience working one-on-one with students in high school and college as well as middle school. I am a certified English and History teacher currently teaching middle school and have extensive background working with students of all ages and learning levels. I have tutored students in the following capacities:
Writing coach guiding them through senior papers and other short term projects
Support with homework organization, work completion and setting and following goals.
Helping students with executive function challenges map out systems that will help them keep their work organized.
Homework coach with challenging topics that require complicated critical thinking
SAT study coach
Support in writing college application essays
Communicate through email with students teachers for any suggestions they might have about next steps in the work.

My role is to work with families as an outsider, guiding the struggling student as a knowledgeable third party. I can keep parents updated on the students progress, which can allow the student to take on more ownership of his or her work.
