I am an Adjunct, Professor of English
with a passion for teaching literature
, composition, and reading
. I have many different approaches to learning for all kinds of learners: auditory, visual, and tactile. Regardless of the area of need, I continually provide each client with formative feedback and tools to be successful in the classroom or on a standardized test.
I come to Palm Beach with 11+ years teaching American, British, world, and Advance Placement Literature with a concentration on writing
research papers, memoirs, personal and expository essays, and literary analysis with an emphasis on grammar
and developing vocabulary
. I have a successful teaching style and want to continue sharing my methods with students whom want to succeed.
Why select me as your tutor?
I can coach you to be successful on any standardized test through practice, knowing what to expect, simplified grammar rules, and brain activity exercises.
One of my unique specializations is coaching high school seniors how to write college application
essays "that work!"
As a former high school and NCAA DI athlete, I can empathize with the demands and schedules of student-athletes. My teaching style is a coaching style and I believe in repetition, movement, interactive learning, and technology to enhance learning, understanding, and communication; and above all, the successful results of all of my students.
My students scored a 21% higher pass rate on the AP Literature
and Composition Exam than the global passing average. Why is this? This is because I am able to implement a differential way of teaching for all kinds of learners and to focus on each student's strengths and weakness.
I have developed painless strategies to learn to write Research Papers using MLA formatting correctly. There should never be a reason to moan when a research paper is assigned, and by following my methods, students will be able to not only shine in their college classrooms, but help other students who are feeling the research paper sighs.
What are you waiting for?
My patience and compassion will help transform your power, courage, and success.
