About Charlotte

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

During my 5 years of tutoring English I have been gratified to see students improve their skills reading, writing and speaking. Some of my students have advanced 2 to 3 grades from better reading comprehension in months. I also enjoy taking the frustration out of writing, being a published writer myself.

I am an approved Art Tutor, too. I teach beginners how to draw and paint and intermediate and advanced people how most effectively to convey their vision. We work together to build on inherent strengths so that each person continues to develop, from the first lesson onward, their individual style.

My background in English covers all levels. In addition to tutoring for 5 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 professionals to enhance their writing and editing. I am happy to pass on methods from years of experience that make writing easier.

My background in Art Instruction derives from drawing and painting for 30 years, often 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.

I provide exercises and full support between lessons. Also, although I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I'm pleased to offer makeup classes.

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

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

My experience covers tutoring English for all aged people. I have helped people in elementary, middle and high school as well as college students and working adults, offering exercises and full support between lessons.

Painting

I have been drawing and 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 inspiring for many 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

My students greatly improve in reading comprehension through enjoyable lessons that I have learned from specialized educators. Quick digestions and memory of written material is so necessary now. I also find that experience gained secondhand from reading teaches us safely how to navigate in life. During my 5 years of tutoring it has been common for me to see students improve 2 and even 3 grade levels in months.
I am adept at tutoring people for whom English is a second language as well as native English speakers. As an often published writer myself, I also know how to make the writing process easier for others.

I provide exercises and full support between tutoring sessions. Excellent references on request.

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.
