SAT Reading,

SAT Reading

Through targeted study, preparation, and exercises the SATs can be easily managed. I craft exercises and routines tailor made for the would be test-taker in order to shore up weaknesses and build test-taking strategies. I put a great emphasis on practice, and finding what works for the individual, constantly measuring the student's performance and bolstering confidence leading up to the exam.
TOEFL,

TOEFL

I'm CELTA Certified, and trained in teaching via a student-centered, communicative method, which is exactly the kind of learning that will be tested by advanced tests such as the TOEFL. In addition to my years of experience abroad and here teaching the four language skills (Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking) in both the United States, Thailand, and South Korea, I am also currently a English Composition teacher for both Native and Non-Native students at the community college level. Because of this I'm uniquely qualified to pinpoint trouble areas that advanced students of English need to improve for the TOEFL exam.
Writing,

I am a college writing instructor (I teach academic writing levels I and II) and professional writing tutor at a college writing center. I have years of experience and am a writer myself. I also self publish my own textbooks on college writing.
