With a PhD in English and a B.A. in History, I have taught college-level Writing, Literature, and Humanities courses for over twenty-five years. I have also tutored students of all ages in ESL-EFL, Writing, Reading, and the Humanities. I have also worked very successfully with youth diagnosed on the Autism/Asperger's spectrum, and have a strong affinity for these students.
Whatever his or her learning/cognitive style, the student is at the center of a learning process for which I am the facilitator. My talent is in finding the unique strengths and weaknesses of each student, then strategically aiding and guiding the student's individual growth and success. Whether working with eighth-graders on American History, with high school students on Writing, or with college students on ESL or Literary Theory, my focus is on the intellectual development of the student in addition to his or her performance on individual tests or papers.
I have recently completed my Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) certificate. I have also worked as an online writing tutor for TutorVista/Smarthinking (where roughly 1/4 of the essays tutored were from ESL students) and as a literacy tutor working with ESL students in Seattle, WA.
