I am a University of Pennsylvania alumna with a degree in Education and a minor in English. As a K-12 teacher, I taught English grammar and composition for many years as part of my traditional curriculum. As a test-taking specialist, I have instructed students on the most crucial aspects of standard written English which appear frequently on achievement tests and on aptitude tests like the SAT, GRE, SSAT, ISEE, and PSAT. I make sure my students have a thorough and comprehensive grounding in the strategies necessary for success in any English curriculum at any level (Kindergarten – graduate and professional school). As a writer and internet publisher, I am adept at teaching the following English composition skills: • Writing and Thinking • Writer’s purpose • Writer’s audience • Choosing and limiting a subject • Tone • Gathering information • Arranging information • Proofreading, revising, and editing • Structure and Development of Paragraphs • Persuasive writing • Expository writing • Descriptive writing • Imaginative and Expressive Writing • Writing a research paper • Effective diction If you want help in English, just contact me.
