I have 46 years of teaching experience in many different disciplines, specifically in areas of English grammar and composition. On the AP level my students have scored in the high range. As a scorer and rater for the College Board, I have graded AP test essays and rated teaching methods for effectiveness as part of the national MET project. Whatever your learning style and level of achievement there is always room for improvement. Composition is essential to any course of study and colleges want to know that you can write effectively. I will design a tutoring course that addresses your needs in writing, study skills, and test taking strategies. These skills will make you a better student in all areas of study.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I have taught theatre curriculum on the secondary level for 15 years. I have also worked in community theatre for several years as a performer as well as a director. As a workshop instructor for the Illinois Association of Student Councils I conducted leadership training and served as a workshop speaker for regional and state workshops.

Study Skills

Good study skills are necessary for improving student performance. I have taught students how to manage their time effectively, write down assignments and prioritize them for best use of time. As an English teacher, I have taught students strategies to read critically, study vocabulary, and take good study notes for all subjects. Also preparing students for the SAT and ACT involved many study skills. I feel this qualifies me to tutor any student in how to study effectively.

Writing

I have taught AP Language and composition for several years and served as an AP reader for the College Board.
