I teach academic, creative, and business writing, as well as prepare students for reading and writing tests, such as the ACT and TOEFL. I have taught ESL and I have trained other ESL teachers.

I have taught at many universities in New York City and I have tutored students from all walks of life, from all over the world.

I understand that each student learns differently and I try to be as helpful as I can.

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.

English

I have taught English for many years and enjoy teaching it a lot. My students enjoy studying with me, too.

ESL/ESOL

My degrees in Linguistics help me to evaluate student problems and find solutions for them.

Proofreading

I worked many years as an editor and have excellent proofreading skills.

Reading

I have taught reading and have prepared students for reading tests; don't be surprised, but writing can help you with your reading.

TOEFL

I have prepared students for this test and have trained teachers in teaching ESL.

Vocabulary

My work as a dictionary editor has given me excellent skills to teach vocabulary.

Writing

I enjoy teaching all genres of writing, from helping students with their academic writing, to creative writing to business writing.
