5 years teaching experience (middle & high school), 3 years as an adjunct professor (undergraduates, graduates, and distance). I am interested in meeting the student at his or her own needs. I work best with middle school to high school kids (6-12) and college students.WRITING
: True writers know that they always need to improve their writing. The question is, do you or your student need my help? I have a simple approach that integrates the classics
to show you the three basic problems in all writing and give you methods for fixing them. For the past two years, I have taught grammar
and writing to 7th graders, as well as advanced composition and public speaking
to 12th graders. I see results with all my students.MATH
: I also have taught geometry
and would be able to tutor in that subject as well. I work very well with numbers, and scored near the 90th percentile in GRE
: Catholic school student? I could help in any and all Catholic subjects--Scripture, Church history
, morality, ethics, philosophy
, social justice, lives of the saints, etc.
TESTING: Need to boost the SAT
or GRE scores? I can help with some effective strategies. My scores were strong (above or near 90th percentile in math, verbal, and writing), and I would be glad to share them, along with my help, with you.
