Proofreading,

Proofreading

I have taught composition skills for over 30 years. During this time I have read, highlighted errors within, and given final grades to thousands of students' papers. I have also proofread a large variety of governmental and professional items. Therefore, I am an excellent choice for your proofreading needs.

Study Skills,

Study Skills

Many times, we study the wrong material and not the items which will be evaluated on tests or necessary in our daily lives. We have all experienced the frustration and sense of defeat that goes along with this. I have taught study skills for over 30 years, and look forward to helping you learn how to identify the key information and how to retain any materials necessary. These skills are as, if not more, important than the information itself. Equally as important in learning study skills is understanding that to be retained,the material must be processed from our short term memory to our long term memory. If not, even though acquired, the subject matter will be lost. Once these elements of study skills are conquered, we are capable of retaining information. And this capability applies to anything at which we are trying to succeed - from school to every day life skills.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

The knowledge of not only a set vocabulary, but also the meanings of roots, prefixes and suffixes, is crucial to understanding, building, and mastering a language. I have taught all of the above, both in a course entitled "Word Power" and when teaching vocabulary to those learning English as a second language. I hope to hear from you soon regarding augmenting your vocabulary skills, thus enriching your English capabilities.

English

ACT English,

ACT English

The ACT is a standardized exam. It is designed in such a way that the questions, conditions for administering, scoring procedures, and interpretations are consistent, and are administered and scored in a predetermined, standard manner. In addition to administering standardized testing while I taught at the K-12 level, I was also employed to grade standardized tests, and train educators how to write tests in this style. Thus, I am very good at teaching skills in taking standardized testing of all forms. I look forward to discussing the methods/tricks that will help improve your skills in this area.

Great Tutor Louisa

Louisa has been working with us weekly. She has helped my husband, myself, and our 5 year old son learn conversational Spanish. It's been a lot of fun and educational! We have learned a lot so far!
