About Eugene

Corey Pedowitz Testimonial:
Mr. D. was my honors English teacher during my senior year of high school at Donna Klein Jewish Academy. No one has ever been able to match his level of enthusiasm and passion for the subject at hand – whether it was breaking down the meaning of the Old English language used in Beowulf or thinking about the larger themes present throughout The Count of Monte Cristo – Mr. D. was always committed to ensuring that the learning experience was both thought provoking and fun for students. The lessons I learned in Mr. D.’s class helped guide me through both my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Florida State University, and will continue to be the foundation of my critical thinking and problem solving skill set as I begin my career as a CPA for RSM US LLP. I am forever grateful for the time I was able to spend learning from Mr. D.!

About Me:
I have always enjoyed teaching, especially one-on-one. No teaching takes place without rapport -- humor the best ice breaker. I respect and enjoy getting to know my students.

I have fifteen plus years of experience, teaching English to high school and college students, in NYC, L.A., Florida, and Europe (Germany).

I have been tutoring one-on-one for the past ten years.

I specialize in working with high school students with ADD, Learning Differences, and Gifted.

I tutor and conduct classes in SAT, PSAT, ACT, and English GRE.

I am an ESL in the Mainstream Certified teacher and have English as a Second Language to adults and teens.

I am a Florida State Educator certified teacher, in English 6-12 (pending qualifying tests).

I am also an experienced Adult Education teacher, lifetime credential from California, and ESL Instructor with experience abroad.

I can help in all English Language Arts related studies, from composition, to creative writing and journalism.

I've also enjoyed a second career in USA and Europe, as a writer and creative producer, in print, film and TV, and my love for storytelling is as much a part of my identity, as is my pleasure in cultivating aspiring minds.

I use student-centered strategies in an Outcome-Based Education model.

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

I have been teaching English in high school, middle school, and college for over 15 years. I am IB and AP certified, as well as ESL in Mainstream qualified. I taught in Europe at IB international schools and am experienced with helping students adjust whose native tongue is not English. My SAT students improve an average 75-150 points after tutoring. Most of my tutoring assignments come from personal referrals.

Literature

In addition to teaching literature in college, high school, and middle school, I have a B.A. in English Literature and an M.A. in English, Creative Writing. I currently teach World Lit. American Literature, and AP Literature and Composition in a respected local Boca Raton private high school.

Writing

I am a published author and editor, with an M.A. in Creative Writing. I currently teach creative writing in a local Boca Raton well-respected private high school, in addition to courses in literature and composition. I coach, edit, and tutor adult writers working on college papers, memoirs, screenplays (I had a TV movie produced in Germany), and non-fiction.
