Hello! My tutoring specialty is English, and I can get you up to speed on all areas of writing, reading, literacy, even ESL. I taught high school English in Arizona for 10 years, my students ranging from high-level readers of Shakespeare to low-functioning pupils who needed help with grammar. I have always loved helping kids learn.
It's the one-on-one aspect of teaching, which is what tutoring is, that has always appealed to me. Without the commotion and competition of the classroom, the student is able to be frank about his learning problems, and the capable teacher or tutor may then target those problems. In the initial consultation, the tutor can get a sense of what drills might address the issue. Once a game plan is set, progress generally comes quickly. Let's get to work!
I am certified to teach English Language Arts in Arizona, grades 7-12. This means I have accreditation to get a job teaching middle or high school students in that area.
So come on, let's get going. Just give me a call or use the email. Whether you're stuck on a big essay or trying to cut your way out of tangle of confusing grammar, I want to help. Rates are fair.

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.
