About Charlotte

I'm an intuitive tutor who invests in seeing how each person learns best.

During my 3 years of tutoring primarily English I have been gratified to see my students improve their skills reading, writing and speaking. One well-motivated student improved 2 1/2 grades in English in 1 year. I have also worked on improving writing skills for college students. I can help younger students with other subjects up to the 7th grade, being fully familiar with the common core.

I am also an approved Art Tutor. I teach beginners how to draw and paint and advanced people how to improve their skills. We work together to build on strengths so that each person continues to develop, from the first lesson onward, their own unique vision.

My background in English covers all levels. In addition to tutoring for 3 years, I have worked for more than 20 years as a published, professional writer and editor for such magazine and book publishers as McGraw-Hill and Cahners publishing. I have also coached on enhancing writing and editing at a professional level. I am happy to pass on methods that took me years to learn to make writing easier.

My background in Art Instruction derives from drawing and painting for 30 years, using music as inspiration. I have taken classes and workshops during that time with highly regarded artists and draw on the best of their teaching methods.

I am flexible with time so that, although I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I am willing to offer makeup classes.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know your goals and requirements.

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.

Drawing

I have been drawing and painting for 30 years and have taken classes with the best and observed many teaching methods. I have created a thorough and interesting curriculum that permits students to develop their own styles from the first lesson, whether they're beginning or advanced, children or adults.

English

I'm an intuitive tutor who enjoys discovering how each student learns best. During my 4+ years of tutoring primarily English, often for people for whom English is a second language, my students have improved their vocabulary and skills in reading, grammar and writing.

My experience covers English for all aged people. I have helped people in elementary, middle and high school as well as college. In my more than 25 years' experience as a writer and editor in the field of publishing, I have also often coached professional adults.

Don't hesitate to get in touch to let me know your requirements and goals.

Painting

I have been painting for 30 years and have studied Watercolor and Oil Painting with some of the best artists. I am familiar with many teaching methods and have developed my own so that I can guide adults as well as children to learn to paint, or improve their painting, and express themselves in an original way.

I think it’s helpful for most people to paint to music so I supply that for lessons, provided, of course, that it is agreeable to the student. I enjoy teaching painting and seeing people discover -- or build on -- their own unique approach from the very first lesson on.

Reading

I build my students' confidence in reading and writing by helping them greatly increase their skills by tutoring in a way that each student learns best. I myself, an editor and writer in the publishing field for many years, have had to digest large volumes of reading material routinely. I appreciate that reading is a way to learn how to navigate life. As a writer myself, and a tutor for more than 4 years, I know how to make the writing process easier for others. My SAT and AP students have achieved excellent results.

I provide full support between tutoring sessions.

I look forward to working with you!

SAT Reading

I have tutored English reading, as well as grammar and writing, for more than 4 years. While all the students improved substantially in English from my tutoring, one student in particular advanced 2 1/2 grades in one year. I have also tutored students in reading and writing for the SAT with excellent results.

I know the requirements of the latest Reading SAT, and have helped high school students with a well-organized curriculum for improving reading speed and comprehension and writing skills to great success.

My own English skills are excellent based not only on my education but on 30 years in the publishing field as a staff writer and editor. I know how to help you maximize your Reading SAT score and would enjoy doing that.

Writing

I have more than 4 years' solid tutoring experience, including help with writing persuasive and organized communications for all grade levels. I can help greatly improve English skills (reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary). I enjoy finding out how each person I tutor learns best.

I have been writing and editing all kinds of material -- including abstracts, essays of all types, and extensively researched articles -- for publication for more than 25 years. It makes me feel good to share what I have learned and so make the process much easier for others.
