Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I am a young professional working in Boston full time. I've completed my undergraduate degree in economics at Bentley College in Waltham, MA. I am very interesting in reaching out to children on the South Shore who are having difficulty with reading and writing.

I've helped students over the years with brainstorming writing topics; researching their topics; developing essay ideas; developing essay structure; proofreading/editing; proper grammar. This includes helping kids with reading comprehension - a key element to being able to write a cohesive, succinct essay.

Awards My class year was the first which had to pass the MCAS in order to graduate high school. I scored an Advanced on the MCAS English portion. I understand the importance of being able to quickly process newly given reading material, pull out the important/pertinent information and compile a well written essay. If a student doesn't have the basic skills in place to do these things writing an essay on command can be an overwhelming challenge.
