Strive for success in reading/writing/SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS

My goal is to turn students' weaknesses into strengths and to enable students to get the grade they want in exam preparation. I believe in guiding rather than instructing; by leading students on a path of discovery to learn, retain and apply, in order to avoid making the same mistakes twice. Students are responsible for their own learning which is to say that firstly, hard graft is required to acquire a vocabulary base substantive to pass SAT. Secondly it is also required to consistently appl... [more]

The Art of Language and the Language of Art

Between seven years of higher education and 15 years of professional experience, I have read, analyzed, researched, and studied over 100 different dramatic works. One of the more valuable techniques I had the opportunity to learn during my time in college is a sort of close-reading through the lens of personal associations. Applied to theatre arts, it's a way to unlock the deeper meaning of a script with an eye towards making concrete production decisions. That's not the full use of its applicability, however, because it may be applied to any sort of text and, when contextualized through bi [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]

Experienced Teacher Ready to Help You Achieve Academic Excellence

Hi! I'm enthusiastic about helping young people become outstanding students by assisting with writing skills and tutoring in math and physics. I'm most interested in improving reasoning and communication skills essential for academic success. I prefer to work with families and students who value education; I'm not so interested in assisting someone whose only concern is passing tomorrow's test. A student who insists on simply being told the steps to solve a particular homework problem, who is... [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]

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]

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]
