About Gail

I am a retired English professor. It has always been my feeling that students with excellent writing skills have greater success in school. To this end, I help students with grammar and punctuation issues, organization, time management, proofreading and editing ability. In addition, I feel that students need to understand how to do research and document properly. I have guided hundreds of students through this process successfully.

My style is not to be the "sage on the stage" but the "guide on the side." I want to enable students to be able to stand on their own.

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.

Study Skills

I have taught a college level class on study skills in the past. I have also created an online class in the subject. I feel confident I can work on study skills with middle school, high school, and college students.

Very patient and kind, has been so helpful to my son!

Gail S. has brought the one-to-one attention that he is lacking at school because of the overcrowded and overworked teachers.

I would highly recommend Gail S. if you are looking for a tutor who will m
