Friendly and Knowledgeable Tutor with 15+ Years of Experience

80% of ACT English is being able to recognize grammatical mistakes and know how to fix it. The rest of it has to do with understanding the stylistic or organizational mistakes of the passage. Having taught this subject for over 10 years, I can teach you exactly what grammatical concepts to know so you will have the highest chance of getting the best scores. In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing this as as a full time career with 20+ regular students. Who would have thought that tutoring would become my passion? Throughou [more]

Dedicated Tutor for Math, English, and Study Skills

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

Inventive, fun-loving tutor who loves kids

I am a retired theater and English teacher. I have been tutoring for two years and have found it to be the most fulfilling form of teaching I have done. The thing I love most about tutoring is re-igniting a love for learning in my students. Most students requiring tutoring feel a little defeated and as a consequence have lost their natural inquisitiveness about a certain subject they struggle with. Turning that defeat into triumph, the confusion to understanding and watching self-esteem bl... [more]

Patient and skillful tutor in writing, grammar and literature

I have taught literature, writing and grammar extensively. I am quite familiar with the test structure and kinds of questions asked. I am a patient and careful tutor. I love to learn and to help others learn, a pleasure I had for nearly forty years as a college instructor in writing and literature at The College of Wooster in Ohio. Although I taught many classes in these subjects, much of my teaching was done in one-on-one conferences on how to write for a variety of purposes: explanations, arguments, analyses, research, poetry and fiction. I worked with writers from those having basic dif [more]

Language Arts Wizard

For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing. I believe that revising and editing skills are vital to the writer. It is rare that a first draft of any piece of writing will ever be "complete," and as a tutor, I enjoy offering feedback on what the writer can do to improve their piece of writing. Besides my experience as a tutor, I have had teaching certification in English (grades 7... [more]

Providing Reading and Writing Support for all Ages

My teaching experience began in Seattle in 2005, where I worked with diverse groups of students in low-income neighborhoods to provide them with garden-based education in schools and after-school centers through a small non-profit, Cultivating Youth. I was pleased to instill in these students an interest in science and nature while they inspired me to take my teaching career abroad. Since then I have taught English in Southeast Asia, worked to assess grassroots education efforts with a large ... [more]
