Do you tend to get stuck with the grammatical features of writing and speaking? With a sustained focus on some of the basics and a few other commonly misused grammar structures, you can be well on the way to writing and speaking in a more educated manner.

Literature

Reading and analyzing literature can be very enjoyable for some and tedious for others. If you struggle to understand a particular piece or type of literature, tutoring can help you learn literary terms and aspects of different types of literature that will greatly assist you in extending your literary understanding.

Proofreading

Proofreading your writing can be challenging as you have put a great deal of thought into what you wish to communicate, and hence you are often quite sure you got your point across to your audience. However it can be difficult to ascertain what aspects of your writing are actually clouding the picture or miscommunicating your ideas often due to familiarity with the topic and numerous attempts at rewriting a piece. Therefore an objective reader can quickly point out unclear or confusing elements. Ensure your work is polished; a proofreader like myself can ponder and review your writing.

Reading

There are many elements involved in strengthening reading skills. Perhaps practicing phonics and phonetics is needed. Possibly you need to enhance your reading skills by strengthening comprehension with the use of a variety of reading strategies. Indeed increasing your reading skills can help you in almost every area of your life, and in the process, reading can become so much more enjoyable for you.

SAT Reading

Improve your SAT Reading skills as well as your test taking skills. Often polishing academic content area skills and test taking skills can greatly increase your confidence on test taking day. Also raising your awareness of the test as in question types and content covered lowers anxiety and enables you to handle the test with greater confidence.

SAT Writing

SAT Writing: Improve your writing by utilizing the process writing approach. This method develops a piece of writing and consists of brainstorming or planning, developing a rough draft, editing it for content, organization, style, word choice, grammar, and mechanics, and finally revising it. While tutoring you to enhance your writing, a variety of tools will be incorporated to provide further support and strengthen writing weaknesses.

SOL

I am certified in Virginia to teach English and ESOL K-12 and I have for example taught English 9, 10, and 11 students and particularly the 11th graders take the SOL Writing and SOL Reading. Thus I raise students awareness of the SOL standards, tutor them to attain the required content and skills, and review with them using sample SOL questions to ensure success on SOL tests.

Study Skills

I have taken a number of major tests such as SAT, GRE, Praxis and hence utilized and polished test taking skills. Also I have taught a number of students test taking skills to ensure they succeed in the test taking process

TEAS

There are sections of the TEAS that focus on English grammar and vocabulary and involve the student in reading passages, and I could assist students who are seeking this type of assistance.

TOEFL

Taking the TOEFL with confidence on test day is greatly enhanced in a number of ways. I work with TOEFL students to further develop their speaking, writing, grammar, listening, and pronunciation skills.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary development significantly increases the enjoyment of reading, writing, and speaking in English. Advancement in vocabulary also gives others the sense you know what you are talking or writing about. Get the help you need to be articulate in English.

Writing

Good writing takes time and is created best through the process of brainstorming, developing a rough draft, editing and revising. If authors go through 100s of edits prior to publication, can you expect to write perfectly the first time? And many of us do have this misconception, "If I can't write it perfectly the first time, I can't write." Get help to polish your writing.
