About Colleen

I've been working in Supplemental Education for almost ten years, teaching and tutoring both privately and professionally for companies such as the Institute of Reading Development, Study Page, and Huntington Learning Center.

My specialty is English, Literature, Reading & Writing. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English and my Master's Degree in Poetry & Creative Writing. If you are struggling with Shakespeare, George Eliot or something a little more modern, like Toni Morrison's Beloved, I can help you learn those pesky literary terms and understand everything you've been missing in your English classes.

I have also taught hundreds of students how to speed-read over the last ten years! Speed-reading does not only decrease the amount of time necessary to finish assignments; it also increases reading comprehension!

Writing is the active form of reading, and I will teach you how to best write the hardest essay and/or paper you've ever been assigned in your Academic Career!

I've been working with students for over 10 years in English and literature...and those ten years have taught me that each student is different, and needs an individualized approach. Some students struggle in English because their reading comprehension is low. Some students struggle because they never learned proper grammar. Before there can be a solution, there must be a diagnosis.

Do you want to get your homework done faster but still receive 100%? Are you struggling to get your ACT/SAT score up? I'm the tutor for you!!
