I have more than 20 years experience tutoring students of all ages and abilities. I excel in English, Social Studies, Reading Comprehension and Grammar. I have extensive experience in the Reading and Writing sections of the SAT. I have taught organisational skills and study skills in private schools in the USA and Canada.
I grew up in England and attended my first two years of college there before coming to America as an exchange student...and a BA, MA and PhD later, I am still here! My children have attended several Fairfax County Public schools, as well as Nysmith School for the Gifted.
I thrive on challenges, so get in touch and we can get started!
I have a passion for reading and writing, but I know it can be a struggle for some. I am patient, understanding and creative.
I can be available during the day and at weekends, and of course, after school. If you prefer to meet at your school or a library, that is fine too. Thanks! I have more than 20 years experience tutoring students of all ages and abilities. I excel in English, Social Studies, Read more
She's only worked with my son twice so far but has already made a huge impact! She helping him with writing assignments that he felt were insurmountable and broke them down into manageable pieces. Her calm demeanor, knowledge and skill about actually teaching how to write is amazing!
She teaches writing class for my son. Now a day, my son writing is a lot better. Thank you.
Evelyn was great in helping my teenage daughter with a short but intense prep for taking the SAT. Helped immensely with getting my daughter focused and increased her understanding of Reading & Writing component of the test. Scores in practice tests increased by almost 20 percent within a couple of weeks. So glad we found Evelyn !!
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.
