Sooner or later, a high school student in your family will face the writing segment of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). As writing skills become a more important part of college curricula, that segment has taken on a crucial role in any successful college application.

My name is Bruce, and I can help you. My experience includes fifteen years as a writing instructor at numerous colleges and universities. I have also prepared high-school juniors for the written part of the SAT.

As a tutor, I am patient, thorough and effective. I help students manage the test and the anxiety that interferes with a thoughtful, coherent response. They learn to identify different types of questions, carefully break down problems, and draft an effective time-limited response with speed and confidence. These skills lead to minimizing your student's stress and improving his or her performance.

I also have experience teaching reading and writing for students at a range of skill levels.

If you think I can help your student, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.

Very patient and gentle tutor

It was my third time to meet with Bruce. He was so knowledgeable about business ethics, which really helped me a lot. My first language is not English, so I don't know some of words. Bruce was being extremely patient, so he used another way to explain to me. Thank you so much for being a great tutor. looking forward to meeting you again.

Very patient and available at short notice

Bruce is really patient, and when I get frustrated with stats, he breaks it down into steps that are easier to understand. He takes extra time to look up my assignments so he is prepared before we meet, which is really helpful.
