About Arlene

As an experienced classroom teacher, writer and editor, I have instructional expertise and excellent rapport with students at all levels. I have worked as an SAT English test prep teacher and tutored and coached students in all areas of English: critical reading, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and writing.

My approach is to meet each student on his or her level and then work patiently and consistently to build and reinforce each student's skills, understanding and confidence. I offer a variety of practice materials and sample tests, always encouraging students to ask questions and get the explanations that will help them develop test-taking strategies and insights.

I believe that my "can-do," positive attitude encourages students and helps them believe that they can and will be successful. In particular, it has been most gratifying to hear from students that they improved their SAT English test scores after I have worked with them.

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.

ACT English

As an experienced educator and tutor, I begin helping students prepare for the ACT English and Reading tests by assessing their skill levels and determining how to best help them within their specific time frames. I provide general test-taking tips and review concepts and strategies and “model” how to select the correct answer by working through sample questions and brief passages with students. Knowing why one of the answers is correct helps each student build a foundation of confidence that leads to positive outcomes. Overall, my approach focuses on review and timed practice accompanied by explanation and feedback.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a State Teaching Certification, K-6.

Reading

Provided remedial reading instruction to small groups of second through fifth grade students. Through diagnostic testing, assessed the skills areas to address and monitored progress and adapted and provided instructional and independent exercises as needed.
Worked one-to-one with first-grade beginning readers to improve their word-attack skills, reading fluency, and comprehension.

SAT Reading

My skills in providing successful SAT tutoring (individual and group) are complemented by my background as a language arts classroom teacher for all levels, a Master's degree in Journalism, and professional experience as a writer and editor.
