Hello! I teach high school English at a small private international boarding school in Connecticut; however, I have experience working with all ages and all levels of English language ability. I am TESOL certified and often work with students to improve their papers both at the University of Bridgeport and at Housatonic Community College. Not only am I an excellent editor and proofreader, but I've assisted many students looking to boost their writing scores on the SAT. I received my teaching certificate at Western Washington University in Washington state.

My daughter had a very good experience with Eileen. She provided her different strategies to help her as she prepares for the SAT. She feels the tutoring will strengthen her scores in the reading and response part of the SAT.
My son enjoys and appreciate Eileen's time- she is a great tutor In every way: flexible, patient, caring. Eileen works on exactly what needs to be explain and she does is perfect! My husband and I highly recommend Eileen if your child struggles or has to improve in English!
Ever since I told my son that I had contacted a tutor for some English prep for the SATs, he was not keen on working with anyone. However, we have been fortunate enough to have found Eileen as a tutor. Eileen is patient, kind and a great tutor, suggesting ways to correct his mistakes, praising Terence when he does well and really respecting him as a person. I can often hear Eileen and Terence having a chuckle over something, which warms my heart because Terence can be a tough "sell" on some academic issues. She makes him feel comfortable while learning. What a fantastic person and teacher. Eileen is a credit to your organization and I would definitely recommend her as a tutor to anyone. Beyond the SAT's, I look forward to working with Eileen in the future for any of Terence's English needs. Thank you!
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 am certified in both ACT reading and writing.
As a mother of three and as a teacher I have had many experiences working with children who have ADHD. Students with ADHD can definitely benefit by having hands-on learning experiences. In fact, there are many strategies one can use to help an ADHD student focus and develop persistence with their study habits. Having a strategy to get organized is also helpful.
I have taught autism summer school and have worked as a substitute teacher in schools especially suited for autistic students. There are many levels and kinds of autism and each child is unique and responds to unique strategies. Positive reinforcement and a definite structure and schedule are some of the strategies that work best with autistic children.
Although I am a high school English teacher at present, I have also worked for many years with K-6 students in addition to raising my own three children. I can tutor almost any subject as I have good English skills and basic math skills. I work methodically and patiently and try to see what fits each student's needs. Every student has strengths and can be successful at learning. I student taught 6th and 8th grades at Gateway Middle School in Everett, WA.
I work at an international school high school that has students from all over the world with varying levels of English knowledge. I know many of the writing struggles that they have and I have them practice a lot in order to improve their ability. There are many writing tips and strategies available to the English language learner. Not only that but improving your writing and reading ability can be fun. It's your key to the future, as well!
As a high school English teacher I've worked with many students on their presentations - everything from giving short speeches to PowerPoint presentations. I have also tutored college students with their presentations. I know the value of making eye contact, having an engaging opening, using your own words and language and having an effective conclusion. Students often just need confidence through practice and using presentation 'props' such as index cards or a PowerPoint. A few strategies go a long way towards giving a student the confidence to present in front of a group.
I have helped many students with this tricky aspect of the SAT.
It just takes practice and confidence!
Hello, I have worked off and on with special needs children throughout the years. I have helped children who are dyslexic as an aide with the Lake Stevens, WA school district and I have also taught Autistic summer school. I would love to be a part of your progam. I have received training regading some of our students special needs. I am patient and love working one-on-one with students; something I miss as a high school teacher! If I can help in any way please contact me.
I am a high school English teacher and I know from experience that getting organized is the first step towards having better study skills. Some students have been greatly helped by having a planner where they record homework assignments or by having a separate notebook for each subject area. Other ideas include a regular time for homework such as after school or after dinner. Even when a student does not think that they have homework they can benefit from reviewing class notes or reading over the content again that was covered in class.
I am a yoga teacher for high school students. I would be happy to help your group get started with yoga or to fill-in for a yoga teacher's absence. I have studied hatha yoga, and relaxation techniques, and I enjoy yoga routines that are active but not too difficult. I like to focus on flexibility, balance, and the sun saluation.
