My name is Eileen H. and I have a wealth of experience writing grammatically correct papers on a variety of subjects for different audiences. I received a B.A. degree from Tufts University, a school that prides itself on having a demanding writing program for freshman. It was rigorous and fine tuned my skills. I also have a law degree from Duke University. As part of my legal education, I was required to draft volumes of legal arguments and briefs. Numerous drafts were submitted until perfection was achieved. I became adept at organizing my sources of information, formulating my arguments, and composing a reasoned explanation of my thoughts. Organizational skills are critical to composing a coherent, logical writing. I earned an MBA from NYU School of Business following law school. Again, I was expected to submit many written reports relating to the business world. This provided an introduction to yet another discipline, requiring a shift in style. Regardless of the topic or field of study, the focus needs to be on writing using correct grammar and punctuation. The style and type of language used to communicate may vary depending upon the topic. However, in all cases, the writing must be organized in a logical fashion so the reader can follow the author's thoughts from beginning to end, without confusion.
I have actual experience proofreading and editing for a newspaper. Articles were submitted close to the publication date and I was responsible for correcting and revising whenever appropriate. This task is often harder to do than it would be to re-write the entire article myself. Each author has his or her own voice and it is often difficult to preserve that voice when making revisions. I have had the benefit of being the student of exceptional educators throughout my academic career. It is my strong belief that I can help students and adults, at all levels, identify and perfect their own style. This, plus a commitment to respect the traditional rules of the English language, will result in more effective communication. In addition to the above, I have had significant experience and training in drafting resumes and cover letters.
I am enthusiastic about tutoring reading and writing because students that seek the services of a tutor are motivated to improve their performance. Self-motivation is a powerful force and provides a wonderful opportunity to fine-tune your skills. I would like the chance to work with you to help you increase your self-confidence, whether you are writing for school or for work.

In the event a student wishes to purchase 3 or more lessons, the hourly rate will be $50 for each.
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.
Math has always been one of my strongest subjects. Perhaps because of this, it has also been one of my favorite subjects. It just made sense to me. Children that have difficulty with math may be hampered by a lack of self-confidence. It is important to try to break this cycle and instill a feeling of competence. I have helped many of my daughter's friends master their math assignments and gain confidence in their abilities.
I have excelled in all academic endeavors. I have a college degree and two post-graduate degrees. All required extensive reading, an introduction to new vocabulary and a high level of comprehension. It is worth noting that I demonstrated extreme proficiency in these skills on all standardized tests. Given this background, I feel that I am extremely qualified to assist students of all ages. Not only will their reading ability improve, but their self-confidence will also increase. This will give children the impetus to strive to achieve even more.
