Engaging Writing & Public Speaking Tutor

$90 lessons if you can come to Mountain View I love to teach writing and public speaking and writing for all levels.

My writing improves with each session and my students elicit better ideas and learn to express material they thought was too difficult an hour earlier. I have taught public speaking and English writing at an after-school program in San Jose for four years. I started ou... [more]

Strive for success in reading/writing/SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS

My goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and to enable students to get the grade they want in exam preparation. I believe in guiding rather than instructing; by leading students on a path of discovery to learn, retain and apply, in order to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Students are responsible for their own learning which is to say that firstly, hard graft is required to acquire a vocabulary base substantive to pass SAT. Secondly it is also required to consistently appl... [more]

Experienced English and German Tutor (native speaker)

I have studied English, German, and French literature. There are lots of similarities in our Western literature. It is important to know certain things before you analyze a poem or a book.

What is the tone of the piece? Is there irony? Is this writing to entertain you or are you to learn from it? What is the author?s style? Does he use symbolism, alliteration, sensory images or figurative language like meta [more]

Retired Attorney, Practicing Short Story Writer and Novelist

I am a 67 year old retired attorney, one time public defender, later prosecutor, appellate litigator (death penalty defense before the California Supreme Court), entrepreneurial lawyer - lots of stuff. I am also a working writer, with a couple of short stories going strong on Amazon (30,000 plus sales) and two novels. This may sound like the back of a book jacket, but I am not writing to boast, but to provide the basis of the claim of a substantial background in all types of writing, particul... [more]

Seasoned Professor, Published Writer, Caring Tutor

Unlike most professors, I've delivered a wide variety of subjects, ranging from literature to philosophy to film to environmental studies. This versatility led to an award as Professor of the Year. St. Mary?s College in Moraga, CA was a match, since subjects are integrated and mentoring enriches learning experiences. Today my main satisfaction comes not from teaching classes but from helping individuals. After 30 years of teaching, I've moved into research, writing, and above all tutoring. ... [more]
