I am an old fashioned English teacher with a niche practice working with AP and honors students who need instruction in writing for class essays and for the SAT, ACT, AP LIT and AP COMP. I prepare students for honors and AP English, and work with them during the courses. I am a specialist in AP Comp and AP Literature. I work with students in all grades, beginning with upper elementary. I work with students with their assigned work in the English classes teaching the literature and the writing. There is a great deal of work that is assigned and the goal is to do very well in school along with test prep.
I can teach any literature and teach the literature that is viewed as the best in schools. I am one of a very few people who can teach writing and who is proficient in all genres and time periods of literature. College essays are an area of expertise.
I have years of experience creating curricula, and I know the state standards and requirements. I design individual programs to accelerate or remediate students so that they will have the skills to do well in school. I work with upper elementary, middle, and high school students in test prep, English, writing. I am a career English teacher with over 25 years' experience with a specialty in teaching writing, literature, and reading. I am also a reading specialist which allows me to teach the strategies necessary to crack the code for the critical reading in particular for test prep.
I have been a department head in two private schools, and have had a very successful career. Presently I enjoy working with students. I can get your student motivated and enjoying academic work. I also teach college level students and teach college courses online.
I can raise your student's test scores. I not only do remediation but also acceleration to give students a head start in the curriculum. I know what is expected of the students and I can deliver.
I am very dynamic and interactive. I can improve study skills and organization. I can provide support for AP English, honors English, as well as acceleration for the earlier grades. Likewise, I can provide diagnosis and remediation in areas of weakness. I work with remedial students and with all levels of proficiency. I also work with adults perfecting their oral language for presentations and edit thesis and dissertations. I work with English Language Learners at all levels.
All of my students do very well on the ACT, SAT; they receive a 5 on the AP Comp and AP LIT. They get A's in honors English.
My schedule is flexible.
I gain students' trust quickly and work efficiently. I don't waste time, yours or mine. Once I incorporate a student into my tutoring practice, I am available by email if help is needed. I am just an email away.
