About Eleanor

As a tutor for Hood College's Center for Academic Achievement and Retention (CAAR), I found that helping others learn and improve in their chosen fields of study was one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences I could have. My respect for those who decide to take time out of their schedules to improve on any skill grows with every new student. My current job tutoring elementary and middle school students after school only adds to that respect.

I specialize in English: language (comprehension), literature (analysis) and writing (production) are each important factors in SAT, ACT and AP testing, not to mention most other academic environments.

I require at least a 2-hour cancellation notice, and am more than happy to reschedule for makeup classes. I do not assign homework, as it interferes with schoolwork. I also would like to have as much feedback as possible to know whether both the students and their parents are satisfied with my work.

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

I have a bachelor's degree in English, 4 months tutoring college students (some of whom did not speak or write English as a first language), and currently have employment at a tutoring center for elementary and middle school students. In my junior year I had a Korean roommate who sometimes had difficulty figuring out Dickens and Brontë for her English courses, so she I helped her understand what she was reading--worked on vocabulary, picked apart sentence structure, etc.
