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. Who was the author, when did he or she write the piece, what was his or her philosophy about society and life in general. Then you can ask different questions: Who is the intended reader? 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]

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. A symbiotic relationship is formed between the student and the tutor as both are learning from the process. 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]

Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

I have personally experienced great success in academic literature evaluations like the English Literature AP exam where I scored a 5. Additionally, having taken numerous literature classes in high school and college with diverse themes, I understand how to relate and synthesize information for students to best grasp and learn literary analysis and similar concepts. My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obs [more]

Psychologically-Oriented--ADHD and Learning Disabilities

I offer a very high-level of tutoring that is far more comprehensive than what most tutors offer. In addition to my English degree from U.C. Berkeley, I am also close to completing my master's degree in Psychology from Santa Clara University. Most tutors only address, what I call "content"--meaning the content in the textbook or the content the teacher covers in the classroom. What is severely lacking in the approach of most tutors and tutoring companies is a focus on the internal "process... [more]

English Language and Literature Tutor

I am qualified to teach English Literature because Literature constituted most of my reading for English as a major subject for my B.A. degree. Not only did these studies furnish me with an understanding of the diversity of Literature, but they also imparted the knowledge of how to read and interpret it. My five years' experience of English teaching included the teaching of novels, poems and plays, especially Shakespeare's plays, to high school students. I have five years' experience of teaching English language and literature, and two years' experience of teaching Biblical Studies, as well as [more]
