Teaching is my calling. I am motivated by love of my subject, fascination with the teaching process, and desire for my students to learn and do well.
Literature, writing, test prep of all kinds--if it concerns the English language, I have taught it, repeatedly and expertly.
I can help a student plan an essay, draft it, and revise it, reducing anxiety and increasing skills.
In SAT prep, my students often add 100 points or more in their Reading or Writing scores; over the years, I have developed effective techniques that Kaplan and The Princeton Review do not teach. I have helped people who write for a hobby get published.
Since doing graduate work in English at Duke University, I have been an English teacher for over 30 years and a test-prep teacher for over 20. I charge more than some tutors, but you want an expert, right?
