Experienced Certified Teacher: Italian; English Writing Skills; ESL

It gives me great pleasure to transmit a love of writing to my students. I enjoy crafting short stories, essays, memoirs and poems. Once my students have learned the basics of proper grammar, syntax, spelling and composition, they realize what a wonderful creative outlet writing can be, in addition to being an absolute necessity for school and in the current highly-competitive job market. I teach students at all levels (elementary school, middle school, high school, and college students, in addition to adults who are returning to school or merely wish to improve their writing skills.) I am al [more]

While there, I discovered an equal drive and passion for the study of jazz, and enrolled in the prestigious Jacobs School of Music after a lengthy audition process. Thanks to my drive to succeed at music and my ability to understand and internalize high-level biology concepts, I graduated with a... [more]

Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

Ten semesters teaching and grading at the college level; two and a half years in two college writing centers; many years writing papers for college and graduate school. I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I ha [more]

Writing, History, College Application, Standardized Test Prep

Hi, I'm Caitlin! I graduated from the University of Chicago in March of 2018, with a B.A. in History, and a specialization in Turkish language. The most important skill I took away from my time at the University of Chicago is my ability to communicate through writing. I firmly believe that strong writing skills are vital to a student's long term success, no matter what field they wish to pursue. My goal as a tutor, for students coming to me for writing and reading comprehension help, is ... [more]
