About Sylvia

I will help you to unlock the secrets of PA Common Core. Having worked intensively with PA Department of Education, Data Recognition Corporation (the company which designs and evaluates P.S.S.A. tests), and a major urban school district as an English/Language Arts consultant k-8, I offer first-hand experience with negotiating the murky waters of standardized testing in Pennsylvania. My many years as a education teacher and my career as a reading coach combine to provide a clear, consistent, challenging support for your child to perform at his personal best, whether you choose writing skills in all genres, including but not limited to narrative, informative, opinion/persuasive and text dependent analysis practice. You may choose from the following menu of my certified subjects for tutoring: English, Grammar, Literature, Reading, and Writing. As a lifelong learner, I welcome feedback. Understandably, unexpected circumstances do arise; however, I appreciate 24-hour notice for cancellations. I'm excited to begin this new adventure!
