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!

Knowledgeable and work easily with high schooler

Ms. Evelyn very quickly understood what my 10th grader needed to learn to prepare for her English test! She helped my daughter hone in on things she needed to know going into the test, which gave her confidence to do well. Looking forward to having Ms. Evelyn back to help our daughter boost her grade to a solid A in Honors English.
