I have been a high school English teacher for 13 years. My favorite part about teaching is conferencing with students; we delve into their writing, their understanding of literature, or their preparation for tests. I love working with teenagers because they are naturally curious and tend to ask great questions. I find that working with students one-on-one gives them the confidence to take academic risks and articulate the help that they need.
Outside of the classroom, I have tutored students in SAT preparation and writing. I also coached a debate team, and love working with students on their public speaking skills. I have helped with resumé writing, and I even helped a young woman write a novel. Whatever your boost you need in communication, I am happy to help!

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.
