Sooner or later, a high school student in your family will face the writing segment of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). As writing skills become a more important part of college curricula, that segment has taken on a crucial role in any successful college application.

My name is Bruce, and I can help you. My experience includes fifteen years as a writing instructor at numerous colleges and universities. I have also prepared high-school juniors for the written part of the SAT.

As a tutor, I am patient, thorough and effective. I help students manage the test and the anxiety that interferes with a thoughtful, coherent response. They learn to identify different types of questions, carefully break down problems, and draft an effective time-limited response with speed and confidence. These skills lead to minimizing your student's stress and improving his or her performance.

I also have experience teaching reading and writing for students at a range of skill levels.

If you think I can help your student, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

SAT Reading

In addition to WyzAnt qualifications, I have prepared high school students for the writing and reading sections of the SAT.

SAT Writing

I have been a writing instructor to college students for approximately fifteen years. I have also prepared high school students for the writing component of standardized tests required for college applications. My methodology emphasizes brief, focused essays that develop logically and factually supported arguments. In addition, I give students the proofreading skills to produce writing that follows the conventions of English grammar.

Very patient and available at short notice Bruce is really patient, and when I get frustrated with stats, he breaks it down into steps that are easier to understand. He takes extra time to look up my assignments so he is prepared before we meet, which is really helpful. ...
