I work with high school students who want to improve their writing skills and critical thinking strategies in English. I also assist high school juniors and seniors with the college essay writing process. With more than eight years' experience in tutoring, I have a good understanding of how to motivate and support students, while simultaneously, focusing on results.

The importance of good reading and writing skills cannot be overestimated. They are essential tools not only for English, but for many other academic subjects as well. My goal is to help students become more proficient and confident writers, while being attentive to their individual needs. I also focus on comprehension: understanding the written works is key for students who want to do well in English and to enjoy reading. I love watching my students master these skills and succeed.

Brainstorming with my students to uncover the best topics for their common application essay and helping them from outline to finished product is essential. The essay is usually the only opportunity to reveal something special about a student to admissions. Beyond grades and standardized tests, this is a student's opportunity to shine.

One final thought: Becoming a good writer transcends academics. When students achieve this skill, it helps them succeed in the business world as well. I look forward to working with your son or daughter!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

A fundamental part of English is understanding and interpreting reading materials. The other element is having good writing skills and an understanding of grammar and syntax.

I work with students to help them improve these skills and also work on organizational and preparation skills. Once they develop these skills, the assignments in English class are no longer insurmountable. They can be successful readers, writers and discussion participants in class.

Writing

I love helping students with writing; working with high school juniors and seniors on their college application essays gives me the opportunity to share their positive results.

Writing is one of the most important skills for college and the business world, and I want my students to master these skills. I work with students on improving their grammar and syntax skills, as well as their abilities to express ideas cohesively and convincingly. Becoming a confident writer is the goal we work toward together.
