About Margaret

I have been teaching in schools (private and public), museums, historical societies, hospitals and libraries for my entire adult life. Recently, I have enjoyed working with a high school student who was attending an on-line high school. She is now at Harvard University and is one of my references. I use a creative, personal approach in order to help all of my students by focusing on their interests as we work together. Patience, a sense of humor and a mature outlook are my personal strengths.

I enjoy helping students with essays, analysis of literature, school and college applications and language skills. I am also experienced with project based learning.

After graduating from college, I began teaching English, Art and U.S. History in a private school in Connecticut. I then taught the same subjects at a charter school and an alternative high school, both in Massachusetts. I am an avid reader and have been a free-lance writer for quite some time.

If you need any support wrapping up some school work, getting ready for next year, college applications or any other areas where you feel I can help, get in touch with me. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Writing

I have taught middle and high school students for many years, working in both private and public schools. My experiences include being a founding teacher in two different schools and a private tutor for several years. I enjoy working with students on their reading and writing, keeping their goals in mind. I always have a sense of humor and an empathetic approach to my work. I stay in touch with many of my students, which means a great deal as I follow their progress.
