I am a professional tutor with experience in facilitating all of the vital reading comprehension and writing skills necessary to succeed at middle/high school, on standardized tests and beyond. I have worked at top rated learning centers as well as in student homes helping to build crucial verbal skills. I have experience working with older students; 6th grade through college level. I am a Certified Teacher of English and I have also worked as a freelance writer.

I offer help with the verbal portions of entrance exams such as SSAT/ISEE, SAT, and ACT. Lessons include vocabulary building, exam strategies, timed practice, and homework.

My services as an English tutor also include (but are not limited to) college application essay help, homework help, language arts enrichment, reading comprehension, proofreading, and grammar.

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.

Study Skills

Study skills are important for every student and I often include tips on this topic with my students who are seeing me for other subjects. I am skilled at helping students manage time (creating to do lists and schedules). I am also familiar with important note taking techniques (such as SQ3R). From teaching exam prep for the past two years, I have learned various test taking techniques as well. I already require my students to stay organized, and I prove to be an example of organization for them, as I keep detailed records, I am always prepared for the session, and I keep track of all previously completed assignments.
