EducationIn 2011, I graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Bachelor of Arts in English and Linguistics and a minor in French. Then I attended North Carolina State University, where I graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching. My teaching specialty is English, and I currently work as an English teacher with Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
ExperienceI have extensive tutoring experience, having tutored both privately and for the Orange County Literacy Council and Chapel Hill-Carrobro City Schools. Additionally, I worked as a student teacher for 10th grade English, I student taught abroad in Brazil, and I currently teach 9th and 10th grade literature and composition. I prefer to work with students on English and writing (including ESL), but in the past I have also worked with elementary and middle grades math, SAT prep, and general study skills. I am very willing to work with you on your specific needs, so feel free to contact me with any individualized requests. I am also willing to negotiate the tutoring fee if necessary.
My English I students achieved an "Exceeds Expected Growth" rating on the 2013 North Carolina MSL exams.
I scored above the 90th percentile on each section of the SAT, including an 800 on the writing section.
I received a score of 4 on the AP World History, AP US History, and AP Language exams.
I received a score of 5 on the AP Chemistry, AP Calculus BC, AP Literature, AP Government, and AP Psychology exams.
In addition to my undergraduate and graduate degree coursework, I have also completed training in SAT/ACT prep instruction, ESL instruction, and computer applications.
HobbiesI am a high school English teacher, so I find tutoring to be a fulfilling way to keep busy while helping students reach their full potential. While I'm not teaching, I like to spend my free time cooking, dancing, and traveling. I also enjoy attending various college sports, particularly basketball, football and baseball.

Ali did such a great job! My daughter didn't have a book and since they met at a bookstore she found a geometry book and searched out the best problems and taught her from the workbook that she found. My daughter did so much better on her next test. I'll definitely use her again and would highly recommend her to anyone needing a good math tutor.
