Experienced, patient tutor with strong fundamentals

I do it, we do it, you do it. The student is the focus, and independent mastery is the goal. I tutor in English, grammar, reading, essay writing, study skills and test prep. I'm also Suzuki certified to teach classical guitar to children aged 3 and up, and I can help you learn Microsoft Excel, too. I love teaching because I love learning, and I'm confident that everyone can learn given a positive, patient, supportive and encouraging approach. My students benefit from my strong subject-ar...

Don L-- English, Literature, SAT prep, Grammar, and Writing Teacher

As a high school teacher, literature was the mainstay of my curriculum. I have taught British, World, and American literature many times. I love to focus on theme and character analysis, and to make literature approachable by comparing it to everyday life. Since retiring in February 2014 from teaching high school English full-time, I have really enjoyed tutoring all aspects of English instruction. I loved teaching high school, and I am finding tutoring just as enjoyable. I am meeting many new, interesting people, and I am teaching students of all ages now. I am patient, flexible, and perso [more]

Enthusiastic and Knowledgeable Tutor for SAT Prep, English and Writing

I began tutoring in college as a way to make a few extra dollars and quickly discovered that, not only did I like it, but I was good at it. I found I had a natural talent for teaching and helping students grow personally and academically. The most rewarding part of tutoring, for me, is watching a student transform from someone who would never pick up a book to an avid reader, or from someone who doesn't think they can write to a competent and expressive essayist. In my work with major SAT p... [more]

English, History, Government, Law

Throughout my entire career, I have enjoyed teaching people and helping them to achieve their goals. I believe that everyone has the ability to learn, and I enjoy seeing people learn and do things that they did not think were possible. As the graduate of both law school and an Ivy League university, I have experienced that success for myself and wish to share it with others. I specialize in tutoring for English, History, Government, Politics and Law. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Gov... [more]

Seasoned tutor for Spanish, English, ESL (TOEFL), SAT Test Prep Skills

I graduated with a degree in literature and languages from Bennington College, Bennington, VT. I have since gone on to publish numerous articles, reviews, and creative works. Students do not always know what they can accomplish. With an empathetic teacher, they can come to realize that learning is one of life's greatest joys. I know because I was referred to as a "slow learner" in grade school. Flash forward and I hold a Ph.D. in Spanish and Latin American literature from New York University. What changed? Research indicating that intelligence is not fixed at birth. For those of us who [more]

10 years' experience teaching Language Arts and the English language.

I have loved literature since I learned to read. I enjoy reading on my own, discussing literature in a classroom setting, and teaching literature. If I had to rank my favorite forms, I would say that the novel is first, followed by the short story, poetry, and then drama. I believe that plot and setting are important, but that they serve mainly to frame the deeper elements of a story, namely character and theme. I also believe that to get a full picture of a work, readers need to pay attention to the language the writer uses to tell the story, and how this language adds another layer of [more]

Experienced English tutor for all types of reading and writing

I both studied literature extensively while acquiring my Bachelor's degree in English, and taught literature at a classical Christian school. I began tutoring as an undergraduate student, after a semester of an intensive English tutoring course that included reading, writing, revising, peer tutoring, and tutoring in the college writing center. I worked for two years one-on-one with students not only to improve their writing, but to increase their critical thinking skills and to instill confidence in their own voice. I tutored a variety of students, including many students for whom English was [more]
