About Jeremy

Writing is awesome. Whether you're telling a story, arguing a point, or just trying to express yourself clearly, writing is one of the best tools available for connecting and communicating with others. It's a shame, then, that for many students the rewarding skill of putting a persuasive, organized thought on paper—the skill of writing an essay--has been taught as a pointless exercise in saying a lot of words about a random topic for no particular reason, full of unexplained rules they have to follow because a teacher told them so. The key to writing well is understanding that the point of it all is having ideas and expressing them clearly. Grammar, vocabulary, proper essay formatting—these things matter, but they only matter because they help us say what we mean more effectively.

As a professional SAT writing tutor, I make every effort to keep the purpose of what we're doing at the forefront of each lesson. My tutoring works as a back and forth of learning what the student wishes to say and giving them the tools to do so effectively. I have an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction and several years of experience teaching most graded forms of writing, including persuasive essays, creative writing, and SAT-format analytical essays.

Writing is something I understand and care about. I hope to pass at least some of my enthusiasm for the subject on to my students, but my main priority is ensuring that my lessons are useful, informative, and engaging. If we're lucky, they may even be fun. I look forward to working with you.

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.

Logic

My degree in philosophy from the University of Miami required me to take several courses involving formal logic. While only one class was explicitly focused on symbolic logic, the techniques involved were utilized in many of my ethics and epistemology courses. Through my background in English, I have a great deal of experience with persuasive essays, the analysis and construction of which requires an understanding of logical principles.

SAT Reading

I currently teach an SAT class at Elite Educational Institute, and have both experience with and training in SAT instruction.
