If you’re anywhere near as confused by English as I am by math, I can relate to what you’re going through! What I lack in my aptitude with numbers, I more than make up for in my verbal ability. And I’ve developed the skills as an educator to help transfer some of my knowledge onto you, so that your skills and grades will improve.
I’m a college writing instructor with background as an English Language Arts teacher in the NYC schools. Originally trained by a nationwide tutoring service, I now do private tutoring in one-on-one or small group sessions.
I have a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in English, with additional coursework in adolescent psychology, and I regularly attend professional development seminars.
I’m here to help students starting from middle school through junior high, high school and college, plus adults. I work with people of varying proficiencies and from diverse populations. I take a holistic approach to tutoring, which means part of helping you with English is determining outside factors that affect your performance, such as lack of sleep, fear of failure, time management issues, etc. I’m patient and sensitive to each student’s needs. As we get work done, you may even find our sessions fun! It’s usually easier to learn when you feel confident and at ease. We’ll take manageable steps to improve your overall grades, test scores &/or fluency in English. I look forward to helping you meet your goals.
