Warm, Engaged, & Experienced Teacher of English, ESL, Test Prep

At Brandeis University, while earning my master's in English and preparing for a PhD, I spent many years studying the literature of both Britain and the US from the 17th century to the current day, with a particular focus on nineteenth century novels. I also studied women's literature and literature by writers of color and used these texts in my writing courses at Brandeis, Gordon College (where I was a professor) and at Wheelock and Pine Manor Colleges. I have extensive experience teaching literature to undergraduates. I also have run writing and reading groups for middle school students. [more]

Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

I was an English major in college and taught literature classes at the high school level for many years. I have tutored students in literature privately, including college students, and in the high school resource room. I am a voracious reader, and if a student is struggling with a book I have not read or read recently, I welcome the chance to enjoy a new book. I have a solid understanding of many literary genres: novel, essay, short story, poetry, plays, biography/autobiography. I do well explaining character development, theme, plot, tone, language and point of view. I help students underst [more]

Harvard Grad, SAT, College App Essays, Elementary (K-8) Teacher

Maya Angelou wrote, "When I look back, I am so impressed by the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young." Like Angelou, I love discovering new lands and worlds through books. This love of reading led me to take AP English Literature, take AP Latin Literature, and ultimately major in History and Literature at Harvard College. I studied Russian literature in depth and wrote my senior thesis on the literature of Vladimir Nabokov. As an experienced teacher, [more]
