About Alice

Tutoring high school and college students who want to improve their writing and reading comprehension skills in English is my specialty. I also work with high school juniors and seniors on all aspects of the college-essay writing process. With more than ten years' experience in tutoring, I know how to motivate and support students, while also achieving results. I genuinely love working with my students and easily connect with them.

The importance of good reading and writing skills cannot be overestimated. They are essential tools for English and for many other academic subjects as well. My goal is not only to help students become more proficient and confident writers, but to also make writing less stressful and more enjoyable. I focus on their proficiency in comprehension as well: Understanding character analysis, theme and plot is another essential tool.

One final thought: Becoming a good writer transcends academics. When students achieve this skill, it helps them succeed in the business world as well. I look forward to working with your son or daughter!

Best,

Alice

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.

English

A fundamental part of English is understanding and interpreting reading materials. The other element is having good writing skills and an understanding of grammar and syntax.

I work with students to help them improve these skills and also work on organizational and preparation skills. Once they develop these skills, the assignments in English class are no longer insurmountable. They can be successful readers, writers and discussion participants in class.

Writing

I love helping students with writing; working with high school juniors and seniors on their college application essays gives me the opportunity to share their positive results.

Writing is one of the most important skills for college and the business world, and I want my students to master these skills. I work with students on improving their grammar and syntax skills, as well as their abilities to express ideas cohesively and convincingly. Becoming a confident writer is the goal we work toward together.
