I have a PhD in literature and experience teaching at the college level. My focus in tutoring is to get students to do “critical” reading, which is to discover and understand the information and ideas in a piece of writing, and then to evaluate this information in order to carefully reflect and analyze the work.
Critical writing follows critical reading when students are able to make their own argument in the paper and support it from their critical reading of the text. This is a skill that will go beyond their tutoring session with me because they are being trained to become “critical” thinkers who can look at any given topic in more than just a literal way with the goal of analysis. Such an approach has many benefits, and one benefit is watching students gain confidence and competence by becoming critical thinkers, readers and writers.
Seeing students learn and grow gives me much satisfaction, and I approach students with a passion, dedication and dynamism that can be contagious.
Critical reading is a prerequisite to critical writing. My experience teaching college writing courses has prepared me to guide students through the process of analysis and inference that is crucial to understanding not only what a text says but also what a subtext is and what it says.
SAT essays require the student to write a persuasive essay by make a valid argument. This is done by writing an essay with a well thought out introduction which includes the argument, a body which includes examples that back up the argument, and a conclusion that ties it all together.
I will help the student formulate their arguments, organize the essay and guide them through the critical writing process.
