Hello. A teacher and tutor for over 20 years, I have always enjoyed the one-on-one format. It's a forum where I can genuinely assess the learner's needs, learning styles, and much more. No two learners are the same, and each flourishes using varying techniques and settings. As a result, I realize the integral need to develop plans that best suit that individual, making learning personal and meaningful.
Over the years, I have instructed students of all age levels, ranging from kindergarten through college. Further, my experiences with special education, at-risk, Regents, and Honors learners have allowed me to take into account the whole student, getting to know him or her as a person, not just as a learner. In turn, students are able to make vital connections between the material and life.
As a freelance writer, I am allowed the unique opportunity of showing students a direct application of a pivotal part of English, writing. Using my writing samples, along with interviewing experiences and questioning techniques, I am able to relay to students firsthand the potency of writing beyond the classroom.
In addition to the literature, vocabulary and writing skills instruction most English instructors offer, I have 15 years of Verbal SAT preparation experience. Taking several workshops in the field, as well as teaching courses for a few companies, I have acquired a thorough understanding of the intricacies of this crucial exam. Diligently studying proven test-taking strategies, reading comprehension techniques, Latin and Greek roots and prefixes, as well as grammar rules, I have been able to successfully raise my students scores, many by significant amounts.
I would love to have the opportunity to help you understand and enjoy the subject of English and/or master the SAT. More importantly, I look forward to making the information come alive and stay with you for many years to come.
