Experienced copy editor and free-lance writer

In college I got a job as a newsroom clerk at my hometown paper, the San Jose Mercury News, while majoring in English. I graduated cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree earned while working full time and welcoming my first child into the world. It... [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]

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]

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]
