Bio

Hello, I am an English tutor with a specialization in Advanced Writing Skills.

My goal is to make sure you read and write at college level for three reasons: 1) to get you into the best possible college, because where you go to school matters 2) to bring your critical thinking skills up to par with the expectations of freshman composition courses at the university or college level 3) to send you off to college with the study skills and a sense of how to organize your reading and...

Hello, I am an English tutor with a specialization in Advanced Writing Skills.

My goal is to make sure you read and write at college level for three reasons: 1) to get you into the best possible college, because where you go to school matters 2) to bring your critical thinking skills up to par with the expectations of freshman composition courses at the university or college level 3) to send you off to college with the study skills and a sense of how to organize your reading and writing to make sure you can easily read across the entire curriculum. Every subject you take requires English competency. Hence, improving your ability to read complex texts and becoming an articulate writer is primary. It will ensure your success once you get to college. This moment in time is an investment in yourself that will pay dividends again and again, improving your ability to assess, to compare, to contrast and to make good decisions.

I am very interested in where you are as a human being in the learning process. In other words, I don't look at learning as a thing to be stuffed with, another product to ingest. I see learning as an exchange between peers with different life experiences. In this exchange, what you bring to the table is relevant. Recent advances in Composition Studies have shown that reading does not happen in a vacuum. Reading is a skill that draws on your previous knowledge as well as your ability to infer, to deduce and to extrapolate. I look forward to meeting you and working with you to take your critical thinking skills to the next level. Please call me to get started on a plan of action with the innate potential to improve your quality of life, not just your learning outcomes and your career options.

I am also available to support adults who have not been in school for many years. Get your feet wet before you take the plunge. I have been teaching adult education since 2002: in community colleges and technical schools. As a meditation instructor as well, I place great emphasis on awareness and presence.

For ESL students, I can offer support based on my own experience of living in a foreign country without understanding the language. At the age of ten, I moved from the United States to my mother's homeland to live in Rorschach, Switzerland. That was the beginning of a nine-year foray into studying French and German. My approach to grammar and to learning in general is to stick as closely as possible to how children learn language naturally with or without teachers. I believe learning is work, but that doesn't mean it has to be a struggle. Fun, a sense of being relaxed, and humor are also important elements that contribute to success in learning.

The emphasis of my education has been in Creative Writing, the craft aspects of fiction, and in teaching Rhetoric and Composition. If your need is academic writing, once you understand the elements of creating a solid argument, you can write any kind of essay the standardized tests require. You will also be equally well adept at writing a research paper.

Literature

I have been working as a test preparation tutor for over a year, but I was also a French Major for my undergraduate degree, which means I am familiar with most of the great French authors, as well as the usual suspects in English and American Literature. Additionally, since I lived in Switzerland growing up, I am also proficient in the literature of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I am fascinated by how learning occurs and how the brain processes and remembers information more easily! I can help you with your essays and with writing fiction: I have a Masters Degree in Creative Writing and a Teaching Certificate in Rhetoric and Composition. AP exams in literature are daunting, because they require familiarity with such a broad overview of literature. I can help you find ways to remember what you need to know...with the least amount of stress.
