I am a licensed English
Teacher for grades 5-12 and an ELA
tutor with over six years of experience. Do you need help writing
papers for English or Social Studies
? Would you like to maximize your SSAT
or SAT Reading
/Writing scores? Are you struggling to understand the books you read for school? Are you trying to prepare a college essay
that will make the school of your dreams stand up and take notice? If you answered YES to any of these questions, I am the tutor for you!
I am knowledgeable, patient, and kind, and can explain difficult ELA concepts in terms that students can understand. It is important to me that students are engaged, and I strive to make my lessons as interactive as possible. I prepare diligently for each lesson, from creating grammar
worksheets to reading
the books my students are assigned so I can help them to interpret reading passages. I also have an extensive library of SSAT and SAT prep
materials, including books and materials that I've created myself. I am always willing to help students with writing assignments, whether research papers, book reports, or any of the four main types of essays: persuasive, expository, narrative, or creative.
I hope you will choose me to be your ELA or SAT tutor. I welcome new students, and will always do my best to accommodate schedules.
