About Trevor

As your tutor, I'll help you identify the areas you most want to improve, and we'll build a plan together to help you achieve those goals. Whether it's bringing up the level of your vocabulary, improving the style and personal voice in your writing, fixing those pesky comma splices, or figuring out what the heck is going on in "Ulysses," I've got your back. In our sessions, I'll help you develop the critical thinking and self-assessment skills that make for success in any field. And, as a reading and writing specialist, my goal is to help you come to see and be able to use language as tool you can put to good use, rather than just a chore your teachers make you do.

I love being an educator, and with me you'll get both experience and creativity. My tutoring, like my classroom teaching, is student-focused. This means you're in the driver seat, but if you're not sure where exactly you want to go, I'm there to help guide you. Tutoring is all about you--what you want out of your education, and what you want out of our time together. I'm excited for us to get started and to see where we can go.

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

Test preparation is about more than memorizing lists of facts. I'll help you build your reading comprehension, improve your strategic approach to testing, and help calm those shaking nerves.

ACT Reading

ACT Reading is all about comprehension--reading quickly and building a full understanding of passages without necessarily backtracking too often.

English

My teaching experience has largely been in the transitional period between high school and college-level English. I'll help you build the skills that teachers will be looking for as you reach higher levels in all your subjects.

Grammar

Grammar is more than a set of rules. We'll build a new way of approaching the uses of language, and identify consistent patterns of errors that can be corrected easily while growing your confidence in your own language.

Literature

I have a wide basis in global literatures in English, and my particular focus is in late-19th century and 20th century British literature.

Proofreading

Accuracy and style. We'll improve your sense of your own voice in writing, while learning self-assessment and evaluation in this critical step in the writing process.

Reading

Reading comprehension is a skill like any other. With practice, you'll be able to draw out meanings, visualize relationships, and get more out of all of your reading.

SAT Reading

Test preparation is about more than memorizing lists of facts. I'll help you build your reading comprehension, improve your strategic approach to testing, and help calm those shaking nerves.

SAT Writing

Clarity, cogency, and completion. Writing tests are challenges for you answer questions completely and think critically under stress. We'll build your own writing process into one you can rely on in any situation.

Vocabulary

Remember, eschew obfuscation, although apposite phraseology is usually germane to future success.

Writing

I have taught composition for over five years at several universities and colleges, as well as working at writing centers to help writers of all levels develop their skills. Currently, I am a PhD student at UW-Milwaukee in the English department.
