About Molly

I tutor ACT and SAT Prep (all areas), English, Writing, Study Skills, and all levels of high school math. I have successfully tutored high school, college, and adult students for more than 15 years and have taught students at private and public schools including the Hill School, Shipley, Valley Forge Military School and College, Lower Merion High School, Springford School District, and many more. I have also taught on the college level for more than five years. I work closely with students and parents to develop specific skills and to achieve better grades and higher test scores. In addition, I have worked with many students with multiple learning disabilities including social anxiety disorder and ADD/ADHD.

My main concern is to help each student succeed in school through developing their skills and improving their skills. Some of my students have done so well after working with me they have scored so well on their college admissions testing they have received significant scholarship offers and admission to very selective colleges and universities. In addition, I have helped students raise their grades from just barely acceptable to some of the best in their schools.

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.

Career Development

I have helped numerous high school students decide which schools they want to attend and prospective majors they might wish to pursue in school.

For example, one of my ACT prep students wanted to be a double major in English and Astrophysics, so I asked a fellow Bryn Mawr College graduate who is an Astrophysicist to talk with her via phone to advise her. The end result is she decided the career wasn't for her. With another student, I helped him choose a college for the kind of business major he wanted and now that he is a graduate I advised him on whether a job offer was a good one (it was). I have helped many other students apply for jobs and put together resumes.

College Counseling

I have helped more than a dozen students in various aspects of the college selection and application process. I have helped some students decide which colleges would be best for their career and study plans. I have helped others complete the college applications, including the Common App, and write their essays. I have also visited colleges with some students as they decide which colleges interest them the most. I have done this for high school students and students at Valley Forge Military College who are seeking a college at which to finish their degree.

Desktop Publishing

Hi, I have been doing graphic arts design using desktop tools since the software was first developed for desktop use more than 20 years ago. I have also taught classes in Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop at the local community college. Plus, I have written books on the subject (how-to books) and continue to write and publish newsletters on tools used for graphic arts and desktop publishing.

Graphic Design

I handle the design and layout responsibilities for all of the newsletters published by my company. The list of newsletters includes 7 to 8 newsletters a month, for which I used Adobe InDesign Creative Cloud (the latest version). I am well versed in this software as well as in QuarkXpress. I have also taught classes for the local community college in design and editing software (classes for students as well as adults). In addition, all of the newsletters I publish have something to do with graphic design.

Microsoft Excel

I taught classes in Excel at Montgomery County Community College to adult learners for five years.

Public Speaking

I plan and lead all of the conferences and seminars held by my company, which is currently four or five events a year. Plus, I have presented at various printing and publishing industry conferences for more than 25 years and have also moderated panels at events. I am also a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Public Speaking course. And, of course, we should include my years of public speaking as a teacher! I also wrote a book on the topic of public speaking.
