About Edythe

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. The more I tutor, the more I believe that everyone has something to teach and something to learn.

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.

Algebra 1

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.

Bible Studies

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 I can help students with no Bible experience make sense of biblical references in literature and historical documents they encounter in class and on the SAT or ACT.

Chess

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.

Grammar

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.

Sewing

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.

Study Skills

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.
