Experienced, Patient Math and English teacher

I've taught literature in the classroom for a long time and am an avid reader myself. Yet, when I was in high school, how to interpret novels, poetry, and drama eluded me. Fortunately, I had a gifted teacher who got me on the right track. I would love to share those insights with you and help you read with deeper understanding than you ever have! I have more than 30 years' experience teaching at the high school and university levels. I love my students and flourished working in the classroom. Now I am free to give each student the attention that he or she deserves. My education compris [more]

Dedicated Tutor for Math, English, and Study Skills

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

Tutor, Margaret S.

I have been tutoring students in SAT prep for 6 years, and general English tutoring for 10. I taught remedial High School English. I'm a writer, published in 3 poetry anthologies, several published Book reviews and articles in small local publications. I love tutoring, and I regard the SAT as a valuable test for several reasons. The SAT offers students the opportunity to practice college level skills and to rehearse for test taking in general. Writing under pressure, reading for content, usi... [more]

My students learn how to learn.

My M.A. in Dramatic Literature and Ph.D. in the Study of Literature through Performance in Cultural and Historical Contexts introduced me to theories of organic unity and how literary and dramatic arts serve students' personal and interpersonal growth. A professor of International Baccalaureate Diploma Program English A Literature and English B (ESL) Literature for over nine years, I witness how many bright students enjoy developing their imaginations as well as synthesizing their creative and critical thinking skills through my guided study of literature. They also enjoy their high marks. An [more]

Friendly and Knowledgeable Tutor with 15+ Years of Experience

In 1998, I started tutoring 3 young kids just to earn extra money as a high schooler, and by 2002, I was doing this as as a full time career with 20+ regular students. Who would have thought that tutoring would become my passion? Throughout all these years, I have taught kids as young as 4 years old to college students. I absolutely love that even when I tutor the exact same subject 20 times, each time is new and interesting because each student has a different personality, learning style, a... [more]

Language Arts Wizard

I have studied literature at both the undergraduate and graduate college level. As an M.A. student, I completed a thesis on Charles Bukowski's first five novels. As a Writing Assistant, I also led a workshop on how to write essays on literature. For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing. I believe that revising and editing skills are vital to the writer. It is rare that a first draft of any piece of writing will ever be "complete," and as a tutor, I enjoy offering feedback on what [more]

English Composition, Reading Comprehension, Literature Analysis

As a PhD candidate in English literature, I have had years of experience in the analysis of literary texts. For three years, I taught an English literature course at UC Davis that had undergraduates successfully read and interpret works ranging from Milton's poetry to Dickens' novels. I also taught expository writing and TA'ed for literature lecture classes. I obtained high scores on the Literature in English GRE Subject Test prior to my acceptance to UC Davis's English PhD program, so I am proficient at both expository writing in the subject and standardized testing.
