KayleeI currently teach English at the high school level. I attended the University of North Florida for my training as an educator, which gave me the opportunity to get internships working with students from all kinds of diverse backgrounds. As a teacher and tutor, I worked with students of all ages and levels of ability. Through this experience, I've discovered that teaching doesn't happen in the classroom only. I encourage students to get in touch with their innate curiosity to discover new things, because that motivates students to love learning and to learn successfully. I can tutor reading, writing, essays, literature, English grammar, public speaking, art history, study skills and organization, and special education. When I have free time, I like to read, paint, spend time outdoors, spend time with loved ones, play games, and watch movies.

JulieI earned my undergraduate degree from the University of San Diego in English and creative writing. As a student as USD I had the opportunity to tutor other students in their writing center. I worked with a diverse student population to help them improve their essay writing skills and study for literature exams. I also spent a great deal of time teaching ESL students and was inspired to go on to obtain my certification for teaching English as a foreign language. I continue to work with ESL/ELL students and I also tutor all students in reading, writing, essay editing, literature, English grammar and syntax, essay writing, English, reading, and comparative literature. I have also worked with students to prepare for the SAT. One of my favorite teaching strategies for working with a student who is attempting to improve their critical reading or writing skills is to read aloud. I believe that it is far easier to improve one's understanding of literature and writing ability by hearing the words which have been written. This can give more information about the tone of the author and the feeling that was intended to be conveyed. For students who are struggling with critical reading, this can be revolutionary.

DevanI'm a tutor based in Jacksonville, Florida, where I enjoy playing guitar, reading, and traveling when I'm not working with students. I have my bachelor's degree in oceanography from the University of West Florida. Since graduating, I've been teaching various science subjects at the high school level. I hope to bring those skills into my tutoring work. One thing I've learned as a teacher is that science can be even more difficult for students who struggle with their reading. That's why I pride myself on viewing each student as a whole. If I find that a student is struggling with their science coursework because they're having a hard time understanding the reading, then I'll work with them to improve their reading skills. I want to ensure that each of my students is successful in each one of their classes, not necessarily just their science classes. What draws me to teaching and tutoring is that feeling of satisfaction I get when a student finally gets a topic that has been a problem area for them for weeks. I believe that any student can master any subject given the right guidance. My goal is to provide my students with the guidance they need to find success on their academic journey. I hope that I can do the same for you!
