About Tricia

What sets me apart from other tutors?

*I am a seasoned higher education professional: I work at a large research university and have over 15 years of experience helping students with college preparation and academic success. My Masters degree is focused on counseling and supporting high school and college students. I have also taught reading and writing skill development at the community college level.

My areas of expertise include: English composition and grammar; PSAT, ACT, and SAT Reading, Writing, & Language prep; AP English, AP History & AP Government prep; ESL tutoring; the college essay & college application process; and the college application and transition process for parents.

*My approach is strengths-based: I will never come from a critical or weakness-focused approach with you or your student. Instead, we will focus on your strengths and talents to excel in whatever it is we are working on together.

*I love the learning process and have many "tips and tricks" to share with my students: As an English major and someone who has always loved to read and write, I have developed skills and techniques for excelling in these areas. I am eager to pass this knowledge along to my students.

I look forward to working with you and helping you meet your educational goals!

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.

College Counseling

I am a higher education professional who has worked with incoming and current college students for over 10 years. I also am a private college admissions counselor who works with students to determine campus fit, select academic/major pursuits, and complete the admissions process. Finally, I consult with parents on the admissions and transition process they will experience alongside their college student.
