I created the English Language AP and IB English curriculum at Cherry Hill HS West where I have taught for 26 years. Teaching mostly juniors, I teach the HSPA, AP and SAT tests throughout the year. I've taught at every level since I began teaching in 1987. I have done home bound tutoring for the district for three years. I can easily supply references from students I have tutored.

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.

Basketball

I've coached basketball at the high school level, where I was head coach for four years. I have also been the head coach for our town's travel basketball team and I have coached an AAU team for the past four years. I have many individual fundamental drills and I'm knowledgeable in all aspects of the game.

English

I've taught at the high school level for 26 years at Cherry Hill West. I've taught all grade levels and all ability levels, from Foundations of Writing to AP Language and Literature.

Grammar

I began my teaching career teaching Writing I and II at several area colleges. These courses were focused on basic composition and grammar for semester one and writing research papers for semester two. I think I can safely say I know every grammar rule in the book. I continued teaching writing and grammar at the high school level for 26 years.

SAT Reading

I have been teaching the AP, SAT and HSPA tests
at Cherry Hill West HS for the last 25 years. I know how to help the students with context clues when they don't know the answer and I can explain all the grammar, usage and syntax questions to them. I can also help them with quick reading and annotation strategies for the comprehension sections.

SAT Writing

The SAT Writing section is basically a formulaic expository writing that is simple to grasp and easy to execute. In 2 or 3 sessions, I can almost guarantee to raise their scores on this section of the test. It also appears on the AP Language test and the HSPA in New Jersey.

Very good tutor — My son feels he is really learning what he needs to know to conquer the SAT's, and I think he is becoming more confident about doing well on them. This tutor is easy to contact and posts the information about the last tutoring session quickly. He also hones in on what skills my son needs to improve. I do feel these sessions are worth the money. ...
