RachaelI'm a University of Vermont graduate currently pursuing a masters at Syracuse University. My time at UVM not only gave me a solid foundation in English, but also enabled me to develop my teaching skills. I worked as a writing tutor for two years at the school's Writing Center, where I helped students with subject-specific and generic writing assignments. I also created presentations and hosted workshops on study skills, giving me experience designing lesson plans. Finally, I served as a TA for introductory art classes for a semester. All of that experience taught me that every student is different, demanding a tailored instruction approach to reach their academic goals. I try to adapt every lesson to the needs of my students. I also have a passion for every subject I teach, especially art history and English.

NoraI have over 15 years of educator experience. I have taught students ranging from first to 12th grade. Working with a wide range of students has helped me learn the required skills to become an outstanding tutor. I find it fun and exhilarating to play a role in a young person's education. The power of education is strong and tutoring can lead to an increased understanding and confidence of academic materials. I strive to help my students develop a love for learning. I studied at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where I earned a bachelor's degree in English literature and history. When I am not tutoring, I enjoy reading, walking, and crossword puzzles.

HannaI'm attending the State University of New York - Oswego, where I'm studying for my degree in TESOL along with a linguistics minor. I really enjoy teaching ESL, because I was an ESL student myself and was able to really embrace it. My unique background qualifies me to teach effectively because I understand what it's like to learn the English language. I love helping students learn new things and become confident in their abilities, and I chose teaching because I like helping people so much. It's very rewarding to see people succeed because of the help that you provided. I understand that all students have differences, including their learning styles and strengths. I take those into account and adapt my approach to the method that will work best for each student. I like to work in a collaborative environment with my students where we communicate openly and put in hard work to make progress in every session. Outside of academics, I like to bake, cook, read, play the piano, listen to music, decorate cakes, and do DIY projects.
