Stride Tutoring

Summer H.

20 Years

Elementary School, Middle School, High School

Hello, everyone! My students call me Ms. Summer and tell me that just like the season - I'm warm and fun and help them grow! I am a student myself with a deep love for learning. In my free time you can find me writing stories/essays for publication! My joy is to introduce students to the gifts inside them as readers, writers, and thinkers. As a teacher, I've cultivated strong readers and writers in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms as well as online. Many of my students arrive with low confidence in their abilities. They say: "I just don't like reading." Or: "I'm just not a good writer." I prioritize building student confidence and self-belief along with academic skills. I teach learning strategies that can be practiced for a lifetime. My students return to me years later to let me know that the skills and strategies they learned with me continue to serve them in college and careers. Just like the summer sun - I light up my student's hearts and minds and help them GROW!

Teacher Specialization

I am a passionate teacher with a BA in Literature and an MFA in Creative Writing. I am certified to teach English Language Arts 5-12 and English as a Second Language K-12. I have taught all grade levels in both a traditional classroom setting and virtually online. My students flourish, finding a love for books while raising their reading levels, writing proficiency, and test scores - side by side with their self-belief, confidence, and resilience.
