Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have enjoyed assisting many high school students climb up and over the college admissions mountain. From laying academic groundwork for successful testing, to finding a strong writing voice for exams and applications, to determining a best college program fit - I've had experience guiding the ride. I personally have visited dozens of colleges and universities on both coasts and in the Midwest. I am familiar with the college process and issues to consider. My students have attained a variety of acceptances including Northwestern, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Berkely, UCLA, Cal Poly SLO, & American U.

ESL/ESOL

English is an interesting, versatile and fun language to learn.

Reading

I believe that early reading education requires a blend of phonetic and whole language skills. Moving forward, comprehension skills are important. But nourishing a lifetime love for reading is key to reading excellence.

SAT Writing

SAT writing requires excellent technique, craftsmanship, and a strong personal voice. Practice and focus is important to SAT writing which requires that extra sparkle to shine. I truly enjoy coaching this subject and have helped many students improve.

Writing

The challenge of excellent writing is to find a voice that communicates clearly and expressively. I have significant experience, particularly at high school and university levels, working with writers to produce well-edited, interesting, and purposeful writing.
