About Hermione

It would be my extreme pleasure to share with you my love of English Literature and Language Arts. Aristotle said "Those who know do, those that understand teach." I understand the value of education and the part that my content area, English language arts, grammar and literature plays in the academic success of individuals. We cannot succeed without being fluent readers, writers, and communicators. Success on standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT is incumbent upon knowledge of and ability to effectively interact with classic literature and vocabulary and in writing strong responses to complex prompts. I'm here assist in you in achieving the academic goals you have for your child.

This is my 13th year as an English teacher. I have taught students in grades 4-12 in North Carolina, Virginia, District of Columbia and Maryland. I currently hold a Maryland Teacher's license and am teaching full-time. I'm both mother and grandmother. I'm an English teacher, not an administrator, or a coach, an English teacher.

I'm excited to work with 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.

Reading

As a secondary English teacher, teaching reading is part of the trade. Many students come to 10th grade langauage arts classes reading on 3rd and 4th grade levels. It is my job to assess reading competency and work to increase proficiency through vocabulary development, reading and writing, a simple combination.

SAT Reading

I've taught SAT Prep for over six years.

SAT Writing

I've taught 12th grade English my entire career and as such, I've prepared students for writing the SAT essay for over 12 years. Additionally, I've taught SAT preparation classes for three years. I understand what college writing is and have the ability to teach students to successfully write on the college level, which is required for the SAT.

Writing

I have been an English teacher for 15 years. As such teaching writing is something I do every day. It is also a part of the curriculum for my students.

I have an undergraduate degree in english and as such have written extensively. My graduate work is in education which, of course, required me to write consistently.

Effective writing is a result of practice.
