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.

English

I have taught all aspects of English grammar, composition, reading, and literature.

Grammar

Parts of speech, phrases, clauses, parts of sentences, punctuation, sentences, paragraphs, essays, research papers.

Proofreading

I have a BA in English and American Literature and an MA in Communication. I have been teaching college English for many years, including Research and Writing.

Public Speaking

I received a BA in English and American Literature from Brown University and an MA degree in Communication from Stanford University. At Prince Georges Community College in suburban Washington, DC, I taught Speech Communication, freshman English, and College Reading and Study Skills. At Strayer University, I have been teaching Professional Communication and Research and Writing. The latter is a two hundred level course focusing on the development of a research based, APA documented persuasive research paper.

Reading

Reading is key to success in all courses, and I have taught reading and study skills in such a way as to improve my students' reading comprehension.

SAT Reading

I have taught college reading, writing, and study skills for many years.

SAT Writing

I have taught college reading, writing, and study skills, and I can help you improve your reading comprehension, grammar and writing skills, which are key to getting a good score.
