Stride Tutoring

Nothing in this world gets done without communication! My goal as an ELA educator is to give my students the skills they need to analyze texts and to express themselves both practically and creatively. For each student, I make a tutoring plan that builds on their strengths and works to close any skills gaps if necessary. Effective, grammatically sound writing is accessible to everyone through practice! Although I make focused suggestions for editing, my assessment of writing is more about revision and the organization of ideas. I am passionate about literature and rhetoric, and I get student buy-in through my own excitement. For students to take the risks necessary to practice writing, they need to feel seen and supported. They also need to feel engaged in the material and capable of doing what is asked of them. I like to get to know students and figure out how writing and analysis fit with their own goals. In my free time, I volunteer and participate in book clubs!
