About Helen

English - reading, writing and interpretation can be fun. Let me show you how!

My tutoring philosophy is to totally engage you in the subject. So, I will tailor lessons to your interests and abilities. Together, let's find the teaching and learning style that suits you best.

I have a BA in English from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a Major in English Literature and a Minor in Rhetoric and Communication. I began tutoring in 2003 as a volunteer at The Learning Bank in Baltimore, and since then have tutored professionally at UMBC and Howard Community College. I am currently an English tutor at HCC, a private tutor, and a Substitute Teacher within the Howard County Public School System.

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.

Vocabulary

A well-developed vocabulary is key to success in English. I like to select grade appropriate vocabulary for students and incorporate this into any writing materials we use.

I enjoy working with students on their written English and have a proven track record in writing in both business and academia. I've taught writing from elementary to college level to native and non-native speakers alike.
