Bio

I've taught high school English for over 35 years, including AP English Literature and Composition, Senior Electives, and Masterpieces of American Literature, a required Junior-year course. I enjoy boosting both reading and writing capabilities, and have taught the College Essay process throughout my teaching career.

I've taught high school English for over 35 years, including AP English Literature and Composition, Senior Electives, and Masterpieces of American Literature, a required Junior-year course. I enjoy boosting both reading and writing capabilities, and have taught the College Essay process throughout my teaching career. Tutoring students in SAT prep, college essay construction, and the nuts and bolts of effective critical (argumentative) writing have formed the backbone of my teaching career. Much of my work with SAT tutoring and college essay preparation has been done one-on-one, with individual students. I think that students learn best in a one-on-one environment, so it's up to you whether this occurs in person or online!

I believe that all understanding of great reading comes from making empathetic connections to the subject matter. Effective writing also depends centrally on developing a personal viewpoint which the writer is actively involved in conveying to his/her reader. Good reading and writing, then, require both heart and head to carry them along to successful completion. I would be happy to help you to attain these goals, especially in regard to raising your writing grades and (key thing!) writing a college essay that will be a "Value Added" part of your Application.

One-hour session offered--60 minutes! Please contact me to inquire about opening tutoring sessions. Once a week frequency recommended (you decide how many sessions!).
