I have extensive experience in tutoring. My tutoring experience began when we decided to home school all four of our own children. I taught all four of them how to read, using pure phonics. I taught my own children for a total of 23 years (from Kindergarten through high school). All four received college scholarships. The oldest is now in Law school at N.Y.U, and the youngest was recently accepted at Carnegie Melon. The tutoring approach is extremely effective in teaching academics and critical thinking.
In addition, I have tutored individual students and groups of students, in English, writing, literature, critical thinking, SAT preparation and public speaking. To do this, I applied the skills I learned in teaching my own children. I also developed a multi-disciplinary method of teaching to keep English and writing classes relevant and interesting. I found that personal attention and guidance will motivate the student. I have also coached my students through the reading and essay portions of the SAT, and helped them to write effective essays when applying for college entrance and college scholarships.
