The more I tutor, the more I believe that everyone has something to teach and something to learn. I learn from my students how to teach them. I went to college during The Sixties and bring the passion of that period to each tutoring session. With careers in newspaper copyediting and computer programming, I can help you with your writing or your math. I love beating the system and will show you how to conquer the SAT. I owe alot to my Maker and love to share what I've learned from His Word.

Edith is excellent with students. She is engages the student. She understands what they need and is not boring, at all. She is well read and understands the subject matter to help the student.
Edythe was a great help to my son. She was very thorough in her teachings. Communicated very well with us on appointment scheduling.
My daughter called Edythe to tell her she was really nervous about the SAT test in the morning and she took the time to settle her down and talked strategies. Thank you for being so thoughtful!
She's an excellent tutor. I learned everything she thought me, she's very patient, and has an special way to teach.
Edythe worked very hard to develop a working relationship with a less than receptive student. Together they worked on getting a handle on setting realistic goals
One thing that Edythe did that was helpful for me was to give me homework that is specific to me: she told me to write down the rules, in a way that will help me, rather than only referring to the textbook.
I worked with Edy on my math (volume and area), science (vertebrates and invertebrates), and reading. She was good to work with. Supportive and made learning easier for me.
Edythe is fantastic. She tutors my 7 year old son in math every Saturday. He thoroughly enjoys her and the way she tutors. She makes it fun and he has really improved his math skills as a result of Edythe's tutoring. I would highly recommend Edythe to anyone who has children in need of tutoring. She's great.
Edythe is doing a great job with my daughter. She is very patient with her and is helpful and encouraging. I have already seen her grades going up in all her subjects! WE REALLY APPRECIATE ALL EDYTHE'S HARD WORK! She has made a huge difference in a very short time and I look forward to her continued support in my daughter academic success.
Edye is doing an excellent job with my daughter, and everything is working out extremely well. We're very fortunate to have her help.
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.
Algebra 1 is the portal to higher math in high school and college. I see the subject as a seesaw and a riddle. It's a balancing act for equations and a math sentence setup for expressions. I try to make it fun.
I have belonged to a Bible-based congregation for over 30 years and teach Sunday school every summer. I can help students with no Bible experience make sense of biblical references in literature and historical documents they encounter in class and on the SAT or ACT.
I help people learn or improve in chess by playing with them and talking about each move -- mine and theirs. Chess is a process that involves psychology of the opponent so I get them to be aware of what I'm doing so they can thwart me. I like to play 3-person chess, which forces you to "own" both sides of the board.
I'm the grammar queen, having been a newspaper copy editor for 10 years. I try to relate the subject to the way we talk and text and often treat standard English as a foreign language. My motto: if it sounds weird, it's probably right.
I'm the best hand-sewer you'll probably ever meet, because there are not many of us left. I can show you how to hem, mend, take in, let out, and decorate your wardrobe. For machine sewing, see someone else.
I have helped students with their study skills by showing them how to (step by step) manage their time, prepare for a test, take notes, and write research papers. An important part of this process is listening to students vent about their frustrations in this area and then responding with practicals. For example, when a student says he/she can't study at night because everyone else at home is watching TV, I suggest going to the library or a friend's house or using ear plugs.
