I have had a variety of positions in education,including classroom teaching and administration. My greatest satisfaction has been working with students. I enjoy helping students,at all levels of achievement, to improve. I have worked with students of all ages, including adults. I have worked with AP students, as well as students who feel they are struggling with standardized tests. I have worked with very high achievers, as well as students who are having academic difficulties. My approach focuses on encouraging students to think clearly and logically, and then to develop the writing tools to express ideas persuasively. Grammar can be boring, but it can be learned and it will help the writer to express ideas with clarity and purpose. Vocabulary development is key to reading with comprehension and writing with expression. I have taught in large public high schools, private schools and alternative shcool settings. I have advanced degrees in English and education from Univ.of Penna. and Harvard.

I have degrees from the University of Penna. in English and a doctorate from Harvard University. I am familiar with many standardized tests, including ERB, SSAT, ISEE, ACT, PSAT, GED, SAT, and many state standardized testing programs. I focus on grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension and essays. I have worked successfully with students of all ages, and adults, and students at different achievement levels.
ACT Reading,

ACT Reading

The ACT reading section requires an understanding of grammar and other writing skills. The questions test comprehension of the passages, but they also focus on problems in expression that are related to poor sentence structure, weak word choice, wrong punctuation. The reading section also requires students to develop a technique for moving back and forth between the passage and the questions. Many students lose their place then don't have enough time to complete the test. Students can practice this kind of testing arrangement and learn tips for moving forward through the test with the least number of errors.
SAT Writing,

SAT Writing

Scoring well on the SAT writing and reading sections requires the student to have a command of a certain level of vocabulary, to understand the grammar rules of formal writing, and to be able to read passages, on many different topics, that require the ability to analyze the author's purpose, point of view, and literary style and conventions. The student also must be able to understand the implications of these passages for their larger meaning, to think logically and to draw conclusions from the arguments and positions that are presented in these works. The essay questions are difficult; the student is expected to write a response that is well organized, logical, and coherent. The student's ability to support an argument with examples, reasons and explanations is also assessed.

Phenomenal Tutor

Neen is an exceptional tutor, who is patient, engaging and most importantly she cares about her students' success. Neen is very knowledgeable and professional.

A very skilled, knowledgeable tutor with a plan

Esther is a great tutor for high school and college level students. My son is very impressed with her ability to assimilate important concepts and ideals that helps students improve their clarity in writing. He is currently in an honor program and receiving an “A” in English class. Esther emphasizes that younger students’ common misconceptions in writing is that complicated and complex style of writing would improve their content. She expertly guides my son to write succinctly and with clarity. His writing level is greatly improving with every session and I highly recommend Esther. She is now shifted to SAT prep and is targeting his weakness to fill the gaps left by school education. Esther is very proficient in improving school grades and for advancing learning in preparation for SAT/ ACT.

Knowledgeable tutor with very effective plans

My son ( he is currently in 8th grade) was never very much interested in improving his reading and writing skills. We luckily found Neen on Wyzant and my son start enjoying her lessons immediately. She provide him variety of home works that includes interesting videos and news for him to think through how to analyze each situation. He talks to us about what topic he got for his home work and how he is analyzing them. I never though he would like English literature so much as he never showed that much interest in it before he met Neen. I thanks Neen for making every lesson so interesting for him that he now looks forward to her lesson every week. His reading and writing skill improved a lot too.

Expert in her field!

I am very picky in searching for a great tutor and were blessed to find Ms. Neen. She is an excellent teacher. She provided great help to my high schooler with her SAT/ACT English review. After that, Ms. Neen also shared her expertise in reviewing college essays. When you’re looking for a very knowledgeable tutor in English, she should be your choice.

Phenomenal English tutor!

Mrs.Neen is an exceptional teacher who has helped me strengthen my reading comprehension, writing, and grammar skills. She exhibits a lot of passion for teaching which is evident every time. She asks questions to challenge my logic and gives constructive feedback. As a high-schooler, I am motivated to learn further as I continue to strengthen my academic and test taking skills with the help of Neen. We have done SAT/PSAT preparation, where Mrs.Neen guides me to analyze the passages to understand the implicit meaning. Mrs.Neen understands my strengths and weaknesses, and strives to make me an effective thinker. I am getting better at all aspects of ELA because of Mrs.Neen and can’t thank her enough.
