Spanish/French Tutor

I have many loves as an educator. If writing is one of them, reading literature is just as important to me. I attended a British school from kindergarten to 12th grade, and we read all the English classics before even getting to high school. I had read most of Shakespeare's plays before 10th grade. I have also read many of the American classics too, as well as most of the popular children's stories in existence. My oldest son loves to read as much as I do, and whenever he found a book he loved, he would pass it on to me. Last year I taught 4th grade, and I began to read a lot of the wonderful [more]

Personalized Tutoring for Adult, Business, and College-level

Literature isn't just words. It's a the sum total of what people have thought and felt about themselves and their times. It's a way for us to look into how people live and how they felt about the events in the world and in their own lives. I work primarily with adults in either business, social, or academic situations who need to improve their knowledge of literature. Understanding and enjoying literature depends on more than just reading words. It also depends on help in understanding the life and times of the writer and characters. How did they fit into their world, and what do they have t [more]

Latin at All Levels

A broad and deep knowledge of literature is the foundation of shared cultural literacy. Not only is it essential for the pure pleasure and edification of the reader, it is a criterion by which a person is evaluated by peers in a professional setting. I was a Latin major in college and received my B.A. in Latin, but I made a detour and was an attorney for 35 years. For the past 5 years I have taught Latin at the junior high school, high school, and university levels. I have taught all-boy classes, all-girl classes and mixed. I have been an individual tutor in Latin and English. I say to all [more]

English, Reading and Writing Tutor

I am qualified to tutor literature because I have a BA in English from Wayne State University. I studied a wide range of classic novels, and I have an in depth understanding of classics, their themes, their significance in history etc. I am also an avid reader, and love to keep up with contemporary literature.

But even more importantly, when a student's reading and writing improves, so does their self-conf [more]
