Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...

Duke MBA specializing in Undergrad/MBA Courses and Executive Coaching

I've got extensive experience with standardized test prep. For the ACT English section, I help students to review and master the essential grammar rules they're expected to know, recognize what errors or issues are being tested in an ACT question, and avoid choosing an answer that introduces a new or different error. Most native English speakers know 70-80% of the grammar rules being tested on the ACT, but which portion of the rules we don't know depends upon where we live. Regional dialects might commonly accept certain things which aren't technically grammatically correct. I help students f [more]
