About Gail

My passion for teaching comes from a lifelong study in learning. I am currently a public health researcher and hold myself to a high standard. My qualifications include 20 years' experience working with high school and college level students. I am highly skilled at teaching all English language subject areas which include grammar, writing and reading comprehension. I have received teaching awards for building successful achievement in students and have been awarded an excellence in teaching award several times in the last five years.

I have professional credentials in all aspects of English and writing and hold a B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. Moreover, I have professional experience tutoring students with SAT and ACT reading and writing exam preparation.

Whether we are working on analytical reading comprehension, sentence construction, or a term paper outline, one of my goals is to keep you feeling challenged while patiently guiding you through the learning process. I assign detailed lessons to further your learning progress and assess your learning the material every step of the assigned teaching lesson.

My tutoring experience also extends to the graduate level professional student working on a graduate thesis or dissertation. I have hands-on experience with one-on-one teaching and excellent communication skills.

Sincerely,

Glenda

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have a college degree and graduated with excellent skill proficiency in English. I enjoy teaching this subject! My students enjoy the way I teach and I make learning English simple and fun. I am most happy when my students develop skills that will help them accomplish their goals. I am patient and always bring out the best in students. I look forward to teaching you every step of the learning process to master important English skills. I am attentive and focused on providing you with excellent tutoring.

Public Speaking

I have over 10 years experience with professional speaking and over 7 years experience with coaching others to lead seminars for Professionals in Public Speaking and Engagement. I also have training in the Art of Public Speaking and Impression Management. I will teach you the tricks of the trade and how to be persuasive, convincing and the focus of attention especially as this relates to business and motivational speaking. Most important, you will be ready to land the right job or get promoted.

It all begins with public speaking and generating attention to your unique gifts and talents.

Let's get started!

Reading

I have a graduate degree and a minor in early childhood education. I enjoy working with students and am passionate about early childhood academic learning achievement. I am a patient and kind person and have a talent for bringing out the best in early learners.

SAT Reading

The SAT is germane to college admissions. I am eager to help you succeed with this. I have mastered the very best skills and want to teach you what I know.

I look forward to tutoring you with success!

Sociology

I earned a doctorate in Sociology and successfully passed all graduate level exams which qualify me to teach, and provide step by step tutoring with writing, research and term paper outlines and term paper organization. I provide excellent writing support for term papers in all general and specific subject areas in the social sciences and humanities. Also, I have excellent tutoring skills for taking tests, scoring well and doing research projects in the social sciences.

I am your expert in Social Research Methods for Social Scientists and I have excellent skills in Social Theory and the nuts and bolts of gathering information materials for social science research projects, experiments, and observational research designs.

I look forward to this opportunity and tutoring you!

Study Skills

I have over 20 years experience in academic excellence and achievement toward the development of optimal skill sets for successfully completing any test or goal. I have conducted workshops on time management and successful goal completion and I have an excellent track record of bringing out the best in students. Students desire to study and learn after I introduce time-tested mentoring and tutoring activities and assignments. Every student that I have mentored is now achieving success and doing well in school. I have the strategies you need for building and maintaining successful study habits. You will be more motivated and eager to apply these skills sets and watch them work for you in any goal you set to achieve. I look forward to tutoring you!

Writing

I have a graduate degree and have passed English and grammar requirements for the doctorate in Humanities and Social Sciences which requires an English and grammar qualifying exam certification prior to receiving a Ph.D.
