With thirteen years classroom teaching experience, I have the knowledge, techniques, and skills to help you become a better student. I am easy to work with, but am demanding when it comes to your effort.
I specialize in writing instruction. More than helping you correct writing errors you might have made, I will show you new and better ways to think about your work, from formulating a thesis or controlling idea, to paragraph structure, to having a plan for an entire piece of writing. Great writing comes from attention to detail on all levels, and I can help you learn more about those levels, and give you specific tools to improve the clarity of your expression.
I also have extensive experience working with standardized test preparation: SSAT, PSAT, SAT, and PSSA. We will work on not only content knowledge, but knowledge of the test and test-taking skills.
In addition, I have taught pre-algebra and algebra, and have a practical, problem-solving approach to teaching math that is nonetheless rooted in math fundamentals.
