About Nell



With a background in teaching composition and literature, I can offer help with understanding guidelines for grammar and punctuation, with preparing or editing a piece of writing, with test preparation, or with understanding a particular work of literature. I have a Master's degree in English and have worked as an instructor for several years, and I have experience in tutoring at the college, junior high, and high school levels. I take a courteous and efficient approach in helping students learn. Further, I believe in making the most of each tutoring session.

After asking questions of a tutee to see what his or her particular learning or study needs are, then step-by-step attention at a pace that is comfortable and most effective for the tutee is the route that I tend to take.

Referring to tutoring time and rates, at least 1-1/2 to 2 hours is optimal for the first session, and a reduced rate is charged for the first hour.

I work to keep my explanations clear and concise, as well as make sure that overall, the main goal or goals for each tutoring session are kept in mind as the session progresses. Working with any resources that a student (tutee) might have (such as a topic assignment for an essay) is important, to make sure that we stay on track with the assigning teacher's requirements and expectations for the work. As a specific note about essay assistance, I work step-by-step in helping the writer 1) organize, 2) proofread for grammar, punctuation, and expression problems, 3) refine the work stylistically, and 4) assure that content requirements for the essay are met.

I enjoy helping students achieve their educational goals, including improving understanding of subject concepts as well as preparing effectively for upcoming assignments.

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.
