My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obs [more]

Challenging Tutor Specializing in Lit, Analytical Writing and TestPrep

The world of fiction and poetry can be difficult for middle-high school students, who are called upon to make insightful use of their heightened imagination as well as articulate clearly and abundantly their analytical interpretations. I have over 8 years of experience writing literary analysis and have a complete curriculum built around analyzing literature in three ways- formally, thematically, and culturally/historically- and being very, very systematic in teaching students this method of analysis. I teach literary analysis in hyper-structured ways every day as a middle school teacher and r [more]

Experienced English and German Tutor (native speaker)

I have studied English, German, and French literature. There are lots of similarities in our Western literature. It is important to know certain things before you analyze a poem or a book. Who was the author, when did he or she write the piece, what was his or her philosophy about society and life in general. Then you can ask different questions: Who is the intended reader? What is the tone of the piece? Is there irony? Is this writing to entertain you or are you to learn from it? What is the author?s style? Does he use symbolism, alliteration, sensory images or figurative language like meta [more]

Part of my education was learning about literature. I am very knowledgeable about both classic works such as the Homeric epics, the Divine Comedy, and Beowolf and more modern texts such as Huckleberry Finn, the Lord of the Flies, and other such works found in academic canon. My breadth of knowledge about this subject spans from early 6th century to the works of today! I recently graduated from San Jose State University with a BA in English - Preparation for Teaching. I have spent the last 5 years preparing myself to be accepted into the Single Subject Credential Program there as well to become [more]
