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]
