180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

I have extensive experience in a wide range of literature at the college level, covering anything from modern American lit to the ancient classics (we're talking Homer, Virgil, Plato, and the like). Anything in between is also fair game. My greatest specialty is with the law school entrance exam, known (and dreaded) by soon-to-be law students as the LSAT. I've taught the LSAT for 9 years, scored a 180 on the September 2009 LSAT, and several of my students scored in the 99th percentile and moved into LSAT teaching themselves. Not only do I have a perfect score, I also know what it takes to get [more]

14 years of high school English experience

Extensive teaching experience in American Literature and British Literature. The English portion on the ACT is so important because all five sections involve rhetoric, reading, and articulation skills. The English, Reading, and the Written sections focus on skills learned in high school English and Science and even Math questions involve reading comprehension that can set up a mediocre reader for failure. With 14 years of high school English Teaching and ACT Preparedness experience, I try to stay one step ahead of the ACT and dissect each question. I also have de... [more]

Elementary Education, ESL/ESOL/TOEFL. specializing in Reading and Math

Hello! I am a mother of 6 and I have been a teacher for the past thirteen years. Through my experience as a parent and as a teacher, I see the vast differences in student learning styles. While some are very visual learners, others are more auditory or tactile. I believe that all students learn differently, and I work tirelessly to develop lessons that provide that kind of individualization for each student. I am experienced at all elementary levels in all subject areas, as well as in ESL... [more]

Get help Writing by Bestselling Author Who Loves To Write and Teach

I have had to read deeply to write. Reading well leads to writing well. I understand literature and have taught Literary Interpretation at Columbia College. I have written ten novels and four narrative nonfiction titles. Most people cannot write because they have not been told it is alright to write what you think. I work on freeing up students to feel what they write and use stream of conciousness as a technique to get the work flowing. I have written ten novels and every one of them comes from the same well. Writing is something of a mystery and teeachers can only deiphcer some of the myste [more]

Passion for helping others learn and succeed in writing/ESL

As a former student of literature in college I love helping work with themes, symbolism, etc., and excel at developing essays where kids are having trouble with an assignment or just to take them a notch up for college readiness. Oftentimes teachers do not have time to work with their students in an individual way to improve kids' writing and clarify their understanding for their best work. I am glad to help on a short-term basis for just one assignment, or on a longer-term basis for additional skills! [more]
