Semi-retired former industry executive, college professor and middle/high school teacher is willing to provide tutoring services in areas relating to primarily to Language Arts. I am also willing to assist as far as career counseling for clients who might be undecided as far as college majors or careers. One of my specialties (particularly online) has been Enrichment in Language Arts and AP English Language and Composition and AP English Literature for students age 11 and older, as well as SAT, SSAT and ACT preparation for students age 11 and older! I am also certified by Wyzant to tutor in American History.
I have had extensive tutoring experience earlier in my career, and, of course, as needed for college students. I currently serve at the Career Services representative for HACC-Lebanon Campus, and have extensive experience in working with young people trying to determine a college major or a career choice.
In addition, my undergraduate major was English, for which I was certified as a secondary teacher. I taught English for two years prior to attending law school, and still often assist high school students with essays, etc. In addition, I enhanced my career by serving as a a middle and high school Language Arts teacher in a private school.
I did serve as a reader/grader for the SAT Writing samples a few years ago, so I am also able to provide assistance to students to feel they might struggle with that SAT component.
A number of homeschool parents have asked me to develop and deliver classes in Amerian and British Literature for their children. These classes incldue vocabulary, writing and grammar/structure (if needed) components.

Inspirational ISEE Test Prep
Dr Irwin was so clear and inspirational getting my son prepared for his exam. He took his time, and was very clear teacher. He got so much accomplished in just our first lesson. We highly recommend him!Wendy, 6 lessons with Irwin
Excellent English tutor!
Dr. Irwin is my middle schooler's English tutor for the past few months. He is very fun, engaging, very interactive and does not have a single dull moment in class. He goes through all aspects like vocab, grammar, writing and reading skills. He is very prompt with exercises to work on. I would highly recommend Dr. Irwin for anyone looking for an great tutor.Thenral, 22 lessons with Irwin

Great Language Arts tutor
Today my daughter had the first online lesson with Mr. Irwin. He was very patient and helpful. He went over topics and subjects to make sure that my daughter understood them. He's a great tutor and I would recommend him.Steluta, 4 lessons with Irwin
Great Tutor for AP English
Dr. S was a wonderful tutor! He worked with me my junior year of high school in AP English Language and Composition. My school teacher's curriculum didn't prepare me for the AP test at all, but Dr. S's lessons taught me everything I needed to know to succeed. We read and analyzed texts together, practiced lots of AP multiple choice questions, worked on learning and applying literary terms, and writing and revising practice FRQs. I received a 5 on AP English Language and Composition Exam. Dr. S also worked closely with me on revising my college essays. I applied to a range of highly competitive top schools, including Princeton, Yale, Northwestern, Barnard College, and Williams College. Dr. S's guidance definitely impacted my admissions in a very positive way. I will be attending Williams College, the #1 liberal arts college in the country according to US News and World Report, in the fall. Thank you Dr. S!Jaya , 23 lessons with Irwin
Patient and encouraging
Irwin and Peter connected very well on the first lesson. Irwin was patient and encouraging. Peter wanted more lessons with him.Peter, 71 lessons with Irwin
Dr. S has been coaching my Grade 8 daughter during the past two months, mainly for her ISEE test and SAT vocabulary. My daughter loves her class with Dr. S and has been really looking forward to it every week. Dr. S is a very organized and efficient teacher. Though we are currently in Hong Kong, with 13 hours time difference, Dr. S has arranged the lesson at a perfect time period for my daughter. He sends study material so promptly after each lesson and gives me detail feedback of his lesson with my daughter. We feel very luck to have Dr. S and are so sure he is a great recourse for students looking for help.Olivia, 39 lessons with Irwin
A great tutoring session
Dr Irwin is a great tutor! I've learned a lot from him. His method of teaching is simple but fruitful, easy to follow through and most of all enjoyable to learn. So far so good.Tiffany, 76 lessons with Irwin
