With a degree in English Literature I have studied English and British Literature my entire academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals/motifs of the piece, and inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on what you are studying or reading.

English is my first language, so I have studied it at school and work for many years. I have helped native speakers, children and teenagers, with all areas of language arts, especially writing, grammar, and reading. I am familiar with Common Core curriculum, and I use interactive and traditional materials aligned with Common Core standards when I work with my students in elementary school, middle school, and high school grades.

I have the skills and training to fill the position of an online teacher.  Currently an English teacher at Bishop Moore High School  I am an expert in this field with a master's degree in English literature and several years of experience teaching this subject in a local High School. I have experience preparing curriculum and collecting content to use in online classes with students from all over the world. I have the experience needed to create daily work schedules and exams and I am very creative, which helps to keep the students engaged. I have the ability to adhere to the curriculum of your school and to the state and federal laws associated with teaching. I can put together class discussions where students can ask questions and voice opinions. I also have the ability to observe the progress of the students and maintain excellent student records. I am computer literate with a complete understanding of the various Web-based programs. I have the skills to adjust the materials used to an online format and I can stay in touch with students by email, instant messaging, and live chat when necessary. I have the flexibility to provide extra help for students that are having problems. I also have excellent time management skills that make it possible to handle all of the responsibilities this position requires. I have lots of patience and I always treat students with respect and a friendly attitude. I also possess excellent interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills. I am reliable, punctual, self-motivated and I know that I have the skills and experience you are searching for in an applicant. Sincerely Respectfully, Tom Songer, M. Ed.

Common Core English is based on a simple set of rules that must be learned and memorized. I'm a professional teacher with a unique ability to perceive what students understand and how they understand, which I use to efficiently build students' knowledge, saving them both time and money.
