About Todd

I was a high school English teacher for 15 years but decided to leave the profession 2 years ago due to the frustration I was feeling at the public perception of public educators. I enjoyed the teaching part very much, but hated all the "hoops" that educators were being forced to jump through in the name of supposedly improving education. I always felt that I was at my best working in one on one situations and would love to be able to do so again.

During the course of my 15 years, I taught many different subjects in English and Literature. I taught American Literature, World Literature, Freshman Honors English, 8th Grade Language Arts, Grammar, Vocabulary, and Writing. I also have a background in public relations, so I am able to tutor in speech and communications.

I very much would love to help as many students as I can succeed at a college level in any English or Literature related realm.

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.

I played four years of high school baseball and was a high school baseball coach for 7 years.
