About Rowana

As a writer and recent graduate from one of the top liberal arts schools in the country, I feel fortunate to be able to share my expertise on various topics with my students. I majored in English and creative writing during my undergraduate career and then went on to work in publishing. I can give my pupils top notch assistance with writing and reading comprehension. I'm a great proofreader for school essays and I'll make sure that every paper that my pupil hands in is A+ quality.

I want my pupils to develop a love for literature. As someone who has studied literature extensively, I have read and studied almost every and any book that a high school student might be assigned. I teach everything from the fundamentals of English Literature to theory - whatever it takes to get my students to understand the key concepts at hand.

For younger students, I also cover the basics of grammar and phonics. I have experience working with an organization that helped elementary school children reach the appropriate reading level, so I'm comfortable working with students of all ages.

I look forward to helping students sharpen their reading and writing skills as well as history and various other subjects. I have also studied Art History, History and Music Theory. I have also worked in an admissions office, so I can provide help with the college admissions process.

My lessons adjust to the pace of my pupil. I believe that practice makes perfect, and so I'll make sure that students are not only able to hand in a homework assignment, but that they understand the concepts that were involved in the assignment.

My policy is "Be patient. Be positive!"

I look forward to helping my future pupils achieve their academic goals.

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 worked in an office of admissions for three years. During this time I counseled countless high school students though their college admissions process.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor — My son's session with Rowana was great. She took the time to assess my son by giving him a few short assignments to see where he is academically in order to see how she will work with him. She was extremely patient. I will be scheduling future sessions for my son, who is in the 4th grade,with Rowana. ...
