About Blair

I have a deep passion for helping students (middle school through adulthood) achieve a greater working knowledge and skill set for writing, proofreading, reading comprehension and public speaking. I am a certified teacher in the State of Hawaii and hold a Master's in Education in English for grades 7-12. Currently I am a grade 11 English teacher at Kalani High school. I have found a direct correlation between improvement in reading, writing and critical thinking skills and increase in self-esteem and self-confidence. Nothing gives me greater joy than witnessing students grow intellectually and exceed their own expectations. There is a great communicator in all of us...let me help you be successful by improving and honing your reading, writing and oral communication skills!

I am quick to identify an individual's strengths and weakness, and also to mold one's one unique voice and writing style. I am proficient in academic, SAT and business writing, as well as public speaking. Based on your goals and desired outcomes I can create an specialized, individual plan to help you achieve those results.

Please contact me if you have any additional questions and to set up an appointment.

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.

Praxis

In August 2007, I took the C-PPST in Reading, Writing and Math for the first time in preparation for the student teaching requirement for my M.Ed degree. I scored above average on all 3 test. In September 2007, I took the Praxis test for the English/Language Arts/Literature: Content Knowledge and passed on my first attempt. During my student teaching rotation, I proceeded to pass the subsequent Pedagogy and Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) for grades 7-12 Praxis exams on my first attempt. I earned an exceptional score on the PLT exam and was awarded the ETS Recognition of Excellence certificate.
