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.
