The Fall Semester is just around the corner. You or your children may face new academic challenges and those can be frightening and stressful. Remember, though, that new challenges also mean new opportunities. Whether you take that English class you always wanted to take or fulfill that long-standing History requirement, I can help you adjust to the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities.
I have B.A. degrees in English and History and an M.A. in English. I have over 10 years of tutoring and teaching experience and consistently earn high ratings from students and parents. Why? Because I know how to break down complicated subjects and ideas into smaller, more manageable segments and because I know how to communicate technical concepts with non-specialist audiences.
After leaving graduate school, I held several positions as writer and editor, so I know how to take your ideas and turn them into papers and presentations that effectively communicate. I have also taken many graduate-level courses in history (both American and European) and feel comfortable and qualified to tutor and teach each up to the AP level in high school and the undergraduate level in college.
I also enjoy working with younger children in middle school and parents are often pleasantly surprised by the rapport I establish with their young learners. These young learners have so many time pressures too and having a good tutor in one or more subjects can often make the difference between success and mediocrity (or even failure).
Rates start at just $30/hour if you drive to my location (or we connect online) and at $40/hour if I drive to your location. With the start of the new semester just around the corner, now is the best time to establish a tutoring relationship with me for all your English, ESL and History needs. The Fall Semester is just around the corner. You or your children may face new academic challenges and those can be frightening and stressful.

Charles knows the need of his students. In my case he knows exactly what to focus on before an exam and also he researches outside the lesson the info needed! I strongly recommend him as a tutor also for the convenience of the price and for his flexibility!
Charles came in late to help our son polish an Honors history research paper that was all over the place. He organized, helped him focus and bring pages to the screen better than all the others who've tried to help with this challenging assignment.
Charles is full of energy, engaging, and knowledgable. My son is looking forward to instead of dreading the next lesson.
He helped me with my English assignment that was near difficult to do! Gave such good advice and made sure I understood.
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.
I have a B.A. in History and have taken several graduate-level courses in American History. I have continued my studies in American History since graduation, specializing in the American Civil War and U.S. labor and women's history. I also have studied the Vietnam War era in great detail.
I have B.A. and M.A. degrees in English Literature and have taught English Composition, Literature and Creative Writing at the college and high-school level for several years. I currently tutor English here at WyzAnt and consider it one of my two strongest subjects, the other being history.
Five years of experience teaching English grammar, writing, listening and speaking and business English to beginning, intermediate and advanced international students. I taught ESL in France for one year. I have tutored many ESL students in writing and grammar. I currently teach ESL part-time at a private language school in the mid-town area.
I have a B.A. in History (Modern European emphasis) and have taken several graduate-level courses in it. I speak French and German and read in both languages. I spent about 3 years total in Europe (France, Germany and Scandinavia) and hope to return there when I retire.
Political junkie here (U.S. and European). Took a few poli-sci classes in school and have continued to read and study in the field. In addition, I volunteer with various local and national political candidates (American) and plan to do so in 2016. So I know politics at the precinct level as well as from a more macro perspective.
I have a B.A. and M.A. in English and minored in French and German as an undergrad, so I know grammar inside and out. I currently teach English as a Second Language, including Grammar for beginning, intermediate and advanced students, at a private language school in the mid-town area.
I have taught introductory sections of British and American literature at the high-school and college levels for many years. I consider love of literature both a blessing and curse in my life, as I am an inveterate reader who simply cannot stop! I think some of this passion comes through in a positive way in my tutoring and teaching!
I worked as proofreader, writer and editor after I left graduate school and have done it professionally in various positions ever since (over the last 10 years). I am familiar with the AP, MLA and APA stylebooks/sheets.
Aside from a B.A. and M.A. in English, I have tutored basic literacy in Madison (as a volunteer) and taught English as a Second Language to beginning, intermediate and advanced international students. I am teaching three sections of Reading currently!
I scored in the 99th percentile on the GRE verbal (and 92nd percentile on the English subject test). I have passed the CBEST exam out here (with an essay component) to teach in public schools. Taking and passing standardized tests is as much a psychological challenge as it is a mastery of subject or material. In brief, the test-taker must put him- or herself into the mind of the test-maker to deduce the best answer. Oh yeah, I also teach writing and have done so many for many years.
I am a voracious reader in English, French and German. I teach Reading and Vocabulary to international students currently (basic, intermediate and advanced), so I must keep myself current but also know how to explain complicated vocabulary in simple terms.
I have a B.A. in History and have continued my studies since graduating, including taking several graduate-level history courses. My current areas of expertise are Modern European (post-1648), 19th-century American, 20th-century American and the History of Science.
I have taught college-level writing classes (Composition and Creative Writing) for over 7 years while working on my M.A. and Ph.D. In addition, I have held various positions as Writer, Editor and Technical Writer in my professional career.
