Test Prep Master with 20 Yrs Experience in Many Subjects

My background in literature is extensive and spans decades, with a primary emphasis on American, English and, to a lesser extent, French literature. I have had the opportunity to study hosts of texts from perspectives as diverse as their historical context, composition, and cultural impact, spending the bulk of my undergraduate and graduate study focusing on English and American modern and early modern literature. As a tutor and teacher of literature, I am able to convey how the elements of a text establish the tone and deliver a message through a rigorous hermeneutics and critical thinking. [more]

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...

Experienced ACT/SAT tutor, Certified Teacher, Math and English

I think that an appreciation for the classic works of literature is really essential to being an intelligent, informed adult - since these works are made reference to so often in conversation and in writing. I believe that when students feel comfortable that they have the gist of these works, and build on their knowledge of them, that they appreciate how useful this knowledge is. I can help students to build that appreciation. I am a certified teacher with 16 years of teaching experience and nearly seven years of tutoring experience, specializing in preparing students for the ACT and SAT. I ha [more]

ESL & French Tutor

I love to read books, and novels in particular tend to speak to me the most. I have experience tutoring an ESL class in which we read the book, "Buried Onions," by Gary Soto, a simple read for native speakers but a tool for learning vocabulary for the students of our classroom. I myself have a love for classical literature. Some of my favorite authors include Jane Austen, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Flannery O'Connor, and Charles Dickens. I love to pick up a book and read for several hours when I have the chance. [more]

Veteran Literature and Writing Teacher Broadening Horizons for JK-12

Not only was I an English major at Denison U, I also have Graduate school experience with DePaul University and Columbia College which has provided me with a vast repertoire of texts; beginning in January 2016 I will also be taking Literature courses at Northwestern University. As an AP Lit. teacher (as well an American Lit. teacher) I believed it was my duty to provide students with exposure to the varying voices and volumes that have made up our literary worlds. Students practiced the art of close reading, mimesis, analysis in order to honor the beauty of story in works ranging from Mark [more]

A Well-Rounded, Experienced, and Science-Oriented Tutor

Despite the fact that I can offer assistance in many subjects to students of all ages, my academic credentials and background which include two Master of Science degrees and several years of teaching experience at a college level make me more inclined to work with college and advanced high school students on science (mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology) as well as standardized test preparation (ACT, SAT, GRE, GMAT, and MCAT) and academic competition exams. Also, I can work with stude... [more]

My students have come to refer to me as their mentor friend and an effective English tutor for foreign visitors and new arrivals in the United States as well as for current students in Chicago's school system. They have come to trust me and rely on my help and interest in their situation as they struggle to understand their lessons and assignments and (for the foreigners) their new home here in America. I break down complex language in their reading passages and assignments into simple, und... [more]
