University student teaching English language arts from middle-school to high-school level. If you're a first or second-year college student, I can help with your writing as well!

Methodology

I believe that literature and English Language Arts is about much more than reading and writing about works of art that you don't understand or which bore you. Good literature is about being human. When we understand it, it can help us to be better people and it can help us to understand those around us better. On the most practical note, English is about communication. I want to help you to understand what you are reading, and I want to help you be understood in your responses to what you've read.

To do this, we start with gaining context. If we're learning a skill, we'll place that skill in context to your every-day life. Why, for example, could it possibly be important that you are able to write an essay? If we are learning a text, we place it in its historical and literary context before going any further. This will help you not only understand the text better, but understand how it plays into the history of the world we live in, and how it may be relevant to your life today.

I am comfortable teaching reading and writing skills to those at a Grade 7 level or higher, including first or second-year college or university students. However, for post-secondary students, my focus would be less on teaching source material (unless it is for introductory English classes), and more on writing skills.

Background

I am a fourth-year university student working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree with a General Humanities major. The areas of my study are English literature, History, and Religion (primarily Christianity).

I love to teach literature and writing! Helping others to understand some of the significance of literature throughout history is one of my greatest passions.

While I have not yet finished my degree, I still believe that I am ready to help you in your development as a capable reader and writer. I have been editing post-secondary papers for friends for years, and have been a mentor to several high school students as they transition toward further studies.
