I am a licensed English
Teacher for grades 5-12 as well as an English Language
tutor with over five years of experience.
Why should you choose me? I am knowledgeable, patient, and effective, and have the ability to explain difficult ELA
concepts in terms that students can understand. Every student I've tutored has reached or exceeded grade level standards - and had fun while doing it. I enjoy tutoring as it allows me to tailor instruction to meet the individual needs of each student. My tutoring specialties are: Grammar
, Sentence Structure, Vocabulary
Comprehension, Creative/Other Writing
, and SAT/PSAT
/MCAS. I am also able to critique and/or edit research papers and applications.
A special note about SAT tutoring: The SAT requires rigorous understanding of grammar, sentence structure, and the conventions of Standard Written English. The Passage-based reading questions are particularly challenging - requiring College-level, rhetorical thinking. I can help you maximize your SAT score, whether it is your first time taking the test or your third.
I hope you will choose me to be your ELA or SAT tutor. I offer my tutoring services every day of the week, and do my best to accommodate new students.
