As an experienced high school English teacher I am qualified to teach all areas of English, including writing, grammar, vocabulary, and British, American, and World literature. I am familiar with the various selections of literature used in ninth through twelfth grade, as well as SAT preparatory work. I am also familiar with the necessary skills required to pass state mandated tests associated with NCLB. I have taught all learners including those with learning disabilities.

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

I have taught British, American, and World literature, as well as basic comprehensive English courses to all levels of learners grades nine through twelve. I have also taught SAT preparatory, media, drama, science fiction, and expository writing.

Writing

I have taught writing courses to all levels of high school students ranging from expository writing to the highest level of learner to practical writing that caters to students who might have learning disabilities or those who in general have struggled with the learning process.

I have taught descriptive, narrative, process, and persuasive writing. I have also helped students to prepare for the SAT verbal section which includes grammar, sentence and paragraph improvement, and the persuasive essay.

In addition to teaching writing, I have also served as an editor for my colleagues, editing educational papers and assignments.
