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]

Retired Attorney, Practicing Short Story Writer and Novelist

I am a 67 year old retired attorney, one time public defender, later prosecutor, appellate litigator (death penalty defense before the California Supreme Court), entrepreneurial lawyer - lots of stuff. I am also a working writer, with a couple of short stories going strong on Amazon (30,000 plus sales) and two novels. This may sound like the back of a book jacket, but I am not writing to boast, but to provide the basis of the claim of a substantial background in all types of writing, particul... [more]

Linguist, Speech & Written Language Specialist

At San Jose State University, I coached groups of students on critical thinking in literature. This entailed identification of key themes, symbols, and logic within a story. We extrapolated from these identifications, rationalizing them and understanding how the relate to the world at the time of the book's release. I am currently teaching English Literature and Composition at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA and at San Francisco State University in San Francisco, California. I have a Master's Degree in Linguistics from San Jose State University and a BA in Linguistics from Michigan State Uni [more]

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]

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]
