I am an experienced tutor specializing in all aspects of English instruction: reading comprehension, SAT/ACT prep, grammar, and writing. I have worked for one of Johns Creek's best tutoring companies, conducting their SAT and ACT classes for the past 2 years. In addition, I have taught in the North Fulton school district for the past 10 years, teaching both honors and on-level English Literature and Composition classes. I am AP Language and AP Literature certified, as well as Pre-AP English certified. Finally, I am a second-career teacher: I was an instructor for a few Fortune 500 companies, creating and delivering instruction on multiple software packages.
How am I different from other tutors? I am able to assess students' needs quickly and accurately. If a student needs more work on reading comprehension, I have a plethora of experience and exercises to help them get up to speed. I am familiar with most of the current curriculum and am able to tackle the higher-thinking skills students need today. Most of my test prep students experience at least a 100-point jump in their reading and writing scores. I do not teach just strategies, I teach students skills that will help them through college and in their future. Tutoring students is one of the most rewarding opportunities in being a teacher, and I look forward to the opportunity to help your child achieve whatever Language Arts goals they hope to accomplish.
My students are able to feel successful and supported as they increase their confidence and skills in Language Arts. My specialization in English plus my experience equals a winning combination for your student.
