Passing on the Power of Language: English, Writing, Humanities

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of Washington in Seattle. I'm most familiar with American and British literature, though I do have some contact with world texts in translation. My experience extends to both prose and poetry, and I'm well versed on critical approaches to literature as well as conventions of MLA style and criticism. My personal critical inclinations are towards the reader-response school. This approach emphasizes the interaction between a text and the reader, though I have familiarity with several other approaches, including Deconstructionism, Marxism, [more]

All-Around Experienced Tutor Specializing in Test Prep

In my first year of high school, I began volunteering at various daycare and tutoring centers as a tutor for kids of all ages and in many different subjects. In my last year of high school, I began doing my own freelance tutoring while occasionally doing seasonal work in classroom settings at various prep centers. Through volunteering and private work, I've spent upwards of two thousand hours tutoring. Having worked for many years in both one-on-one and group settings, I have the experienc... [more]

Experienced Tutor specializing in ESL, English, Reading, and Writing

I received honors in English literature at Macalester College and went on to obtain a Master's degree in Writing and Literature from Bennington. I've taught English literature to highly talented students preparing for college in the United States. As a writer myself, literature is my lifeblood. I instill an appreciation and passion for literature in my students by helping them reflect on how themes are applicable to their lives. Great writing starts with a great plan. As a teacher and writing coach, I demystify the writing process for students, whether they are working on a college application [more]

Need Assistance Writing Strong Essays?

In my time as an English teacher, I have worked with thousands of kids, both in large and small groups and one-on-one. I firmly believe that incredible ground can be gained by working with writers in one-on-one conferences designed to focus on one or two elements of writing at a time. My work with students often focuses on what they are preparing for at the time (current assignments, SAT/ACT prep, etc), but I have a wealth of materials to share with students as well if the desire is to im...

Responsive English Tutor to Help you Meet Your Goals

Hi! I've been a professional writer for years. I love the English language. I want to listen to you, understand what puzzles you, help make the rules and usage of English clear. English is a wonderful tool for expression. Knowing how to use it well can open doors for you. I also love history. I'm strong in Ancient Rome and European history. The Russian and French Revolutions are both points of interest. I have spent a lot of time with the causes and experiences of WW1. The neolithic and ear... [more]

Elementary and Middle School Reading, Writing and Math

Hello. I have been a teacher for over 30 years, working in high schools, middle schools, elementary schools and adult ESL/ELL and GED programs. It is a joy to be a classroom teacher, but working one-on-one offers the opportunity to meet a student's needs more effectively, precisely and quickly. That is very rewarding. I have lived in Germany, Austria and Japan. I love taking the grandchildren to parks, museums and the zoo. Reading history, The New York Times and The Christian Scienc... [more]

Native German and Czech Tutor

Hello there, my name is Miriam and I am from Germany. However, my parents are both from the Czech Republic, which is why I speak both languages. I have lived in Germany until November 2006. If you are worried about my English proficiency, don't be. I started taking English in 5th grade and speak it fluently. My major during my undergraduate studies were American Studies and Romance Studies. Currently, I am enrolled at the City University of Seattle, working on my MS in Project Management. I h... [more]

Analogizer: Promoting Mental Panspermatism

Working with children of all ages has always been one of my top strengths and it keeps my mind active, searching for new connections. I usually learn something new or create an enhanced thought pattern when teaching someone else and this is important to me since I strive for constant expansion. I grew up as the oldest child and have been essentially the male guardian to my 14 year old sister. Before the age of 2, she was able (among other skills) to say the alphabet backward in less th...

Richard: Friendly easygoing teacher years of computer and ESL training

I have been recognized as one of the most patient, caring instructors in the fields in which I have taught. As a student I initially struggled in college until a caring and skilled professor took the time to work with me and help me become a top student. Much of my University teaching experience, prior to many years teaching ESL in Turkey and Thailand, was in the computer application and networking field. I am possibly one of the leading experts in working with the Microsoft suite of comp... [more]
