I have been an educator for 34 years. I began as a middle school English teacher, then high school, and more recently, as a library media specialist. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English and a master's degree in education. I believe my experience, subject area knowledge and my passion for teaching all combine to make me a suitable tutor for you or your child. I have tutored all ages, from kindergarten through adults. I enjoy working with others and opening doors that seem difficult to open. I am comfortable tutoring grammar, SOLs, writing, the verbal portion of the SAT, and the reading and English sections of the ACT. I have worked with students who have 504 plans and IEPs, and I have a child who was diagnosed with ADHD years ago.

SAT Writing

I have tutored the verbal portion of the SAT to high school juniors for the past eight years. For the writing portion, I focus a great deal on grammar, since 70% of the writing score comes from the Identifying Sentence Errors, Improving Sentences, and Improving Paragraphs sections. For the essay itself, we work on the 5 paragraph format, as well as reviewing strategies such as taking an obvious point of view, having a strong thesis statement, and being cognizant of time constraints.
