About Mollie

Born in Chicago and raised in Washington, D.C. I have been teaching literature to high school students for over thirty-five years, including twenty five years spent teaching in international schools in New Delhi, Lugano, Athens, London, Rome, and Montevideo Uruguay. In addition, I am an examiner for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program in English Literature A Higher Level written and oral exams. I have taught and examined Advanced Placement English Literature. Although my first love is opening students to the beauty and magic of world literature, I have been coordinator of the IB Diploma Program and College Placement Officer. I am a published author and poet and have helped many students find their voice in their writing.

An important aspect of my work has been helping students find universities that are a good fit and help with the complicated application process. Students have found my feedback and support in creating compelling Personal Essays for college application invaluable in completing a dossier to submit to colleges and universities.

In terms of my experience teaching AP, IB and A-level English, my students have had a 100% pass rate on these external examinations. Teaching in international schools I have the ability to inspire students to analyze and write about literature. Furthermore, as a College Placement Officer my students have all been admitted to one of their two top choice colleges. My skill is in helping students find the right fit in terms of programs, career choice and demographic.

Many of my students are still in contact with me. I am proud that they want to remain in my life, sharing their successes and their news. I encourage any student who is struggling with understanding assigned readings, particularly poetry, or having trouble with writing analytically to seek support from me. I also encourage students who are in large schools where the college counselor has many students to serve, to let me give a more individualized, personal approach.

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.

Literature

I have 35 years of experience teaching in private, independent schools both in the USA and internationally. 100% pass rate for IB, AP and A-levels literature exams. My degrees are in Literature and Composition. I am a published author of fiction and poetry.

Writing

Writing is my expertise in helping students find their own voices in their analytical, expository and creative writing. I have worked with high school students, undergraduate and graduate students in editing, revising and fine-tuning essays and dissertations. Students usually send me their work as a Word Doc and I read and send feedback. Then we SKYPE to discuss.
