Reading and Writing Tutor with Orton-Gillingham Capability

As a child, I was an avid reader of fiction from Albert Teyson Terhune's dog stories to the adventures of the Bobbsey Twins, Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Nowadays, I am more drawn to biographies and historical novels but my love of mystery, fantasy, and adventure still needs attention (which has led me to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and the series of books by George Martin that includes the Game of Thrones). I look forward to sharing my love of literary forms --both prose and poems -- and gaining insight into the human condition by examining some of the novels, dramas, and short [more]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

Do you have a favorite author? If not, keep reading till you find one! My favorite books are treasured good friends! No one is too old or too young to enjoy stories, and our civilization's best stories are sitting on the library shelf waiting for you to engage with them. One author whom I truly love is Virginia Woolf--because reading her novels and essays and other writings has given me a greater appreciation of life, art, poetry, and literature. I hope that a little of my enthusiasm for reading good literature has rubbed off on some of the many students I have assisted with reading and writin [more]

Your Friendly Neighborhood Tutor for Math and Writing

Classic literature presents opportunities for deep learning--and enjoyment. I enjoy working with students to help them engage with stories and books. I have a master's degree in Comparative Literature and a bachelor's degree in English Literature, and I have experience giving lessons in both these subjects. I've tutored on and off throughout my life, beginning in college, and I always seem to come back to it. I've tutored calculus, writing, elementary reading, middle school math, and French. When I was a 6th-grade teacher, I got a lot out of working with students one on one because I was ab [more]

Writing Teacher, Linguist, and History of World Thought

Literature is a vast field and involves both knowledge of the text, its historical context, as well as techniques for approaching literary form. As a retired teacher with over 20 years' experience, I have led discussions, helped students create writing prompts, created ways of entering long works of literature without stress, and taught ways to write about works of world literature. With the 2010-2011 school year, Mr. P celebrated his twentieth year as a teacher with the Alameda Unified School District and twenty-two years in the profession, having taught in both high school and middle school [more]
