Hi, there. I'm Andrea, an experienced tutor and editor/proofreader who loves the English language and is skilled in teaching students from ages 6 to 60. I will travel about 20 miles in any direction from Catonsville (more miles will raise my base rate). My areas of tutoring expertise include language arts, English as a Second Language, research, reading, writing, literature, verbal test prep and the humanities. I also offer services as a proofread and editor. I charge $25/hour and I offer the first lesson half-price! I graduated magna cum laude from University of Maryland with a degree in English and I hold a graduate degree from Earlham School of Religion.
So often in learning situations, we only hear about what we are doing wrong. That's no way to motivate people! I use a lot of positive feedback, encouragement and praise to show students what they already know and increase their appetite for learning. My goal is to empower students to build both knowledge and strategies to find knowledge. I've helped people of all ages and from all fields improve their reading comprehension and learn to polish their essays, themes, resumes, blogs, business proposals, lab reports and dissertations. If your class or project has a writing or reading component, I can help. I worked as a reporter and editor for five years before pursuing a career in pastoral care. I love helping people learn to use our rich language to communicate and build connections and I enjoy being able to impact students' lives in an immediate way.
I have a B.A. in English from the University of Maryland and an M.Div.from Earlham School of Religion.
