To date, I have been a writing tutor for college students for four semesters and I have taught three semesters of Composition 2 and one semester of Texts and Contexts at Fordham University. My training as a tutor has helped me to both value and strengthen my "one-on-one" rapport with students. As a classroom teacher of college students, I have concentrated on honing my assessment skills. I assess students' essays both for grammar and mechanical adequacy and also for less clear-cut skills, such as precision, coherency and persuasiveness. As a tutor I can help students revise and improve their essays, particularly in English and History, but also in the social sciences, including Psychology, Anthropology, Sociology, etc. I am also very helpful to students who need assistance in brainstorming and in coming up with ideas.

Finally, I am happy to assist students with their college essays, as I have logged many, many hours helping my son and my daughter with their college essays.
