I have been a secondary English teacher for the past seven years at a private, college-preparatory school. I have taught multiple language arts courses such as AP English Literature and Composition, American Literature, British Literature, and English 10. I have been trained as an Advance Placement English instructor in literature and composition, and I have had much success in the past several years with my students scoring high on the AP national test. Additionally, I have tutored students in reading, writing, and standardized test preparation such as the ACT.
I have always had a great rapport with my students. I am passionate about the language arts and feel that my job as a teacher/tutor is to help my students see the value of reading and writing on both a professional and individual level. I believe I am successful as a teacher because I have an ability to understand each student's learning style, and develop lessons that target that particular style, which in turn helps the student achieve his fullest potential.

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.
Because of my seven year experience in teaching advanced placement writing and high school composition, I am highly qualified to instruct students in writing for the SAT. Not only do I understand the grammar, but I also know how to write for the SAT audience and to help students write for on-demand prompts. Additionally, being a writing teacher has helped me know how to break down the writing process so that the information is easily absorbed by the student.
I am a qualified writing tutor because of my experience in coaching writing as a high school English teacher. I have taught all grade levels in composition- from freshmen to AP seniors. I have privately tutored middle school aged students in composition as well.
