Experienced, Patient Math and English teacher

I've taught literature in the classroom for a long time and am an avid reader myself. Yet, when I was in high school, how to interpret novels, poetry, and drama eluded me. Fortunately, I had a gifted teacher who got me on the right track. I would love to share those insights with you and help you read with deeper understanding than you ever have! I have more than 30 years' experience teaching at the high school and university levels. I love my students and flourished working in the classroom. Now I am free to give each student the attention that he or she deserves. My education compris [more]

Inventive, fun-loving tutor who loves kids

I spent 10 years as a high school English teacher for 10th and 11th grade. I currently tutor two students in the middle school, working on their literature essays. Literature is one of my great passions and I am well read. Because I write for young adults I tend to read a lot of young adult literature and I have vast knowledge of what it is that young adults are reading. I am a retired theater and English teacher. I have been tutoring for two years and have found it to be the most fulfilling form of teaching I have done. The thing I love most about tutoring is re-igniting a love for learnin [more]

Dedicated Tutor for Math, English, and Study Skills

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

Certified Teacher To Inspire Your Child

My name is Risa, and I have been in education for 20 years. I am a certified teacher, have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education, and have taught a variety of grades--4th, 6th, 8th, and high school English. I initially went into teaching because I love watching that "light bulb" go on in my students. I quickly came to see that the light bulbs didn't always come easy for some students and those were the ones I was drawn to. I like working with students who "don't get it" so that they ca... [more]

Experienced ESOL/ELA Teacher

I've been tutoring online for a year and have found it one of the most rewarding ways to teach. I've worked with people in North America, the Pacific Rim, Northeast Africa, and Europe. I've advanced my skills and knowledge especially in business English and refreshed my teaching of literature. Since 1988, my focus has been on teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I've taught in public schools, colleges , and institutes in the US and overseas. I have taught and am certified (in ... [more]

Knowledgeable MFA Specializing in Writing

My love of writing and encouraging others is perfect for anyone in need of a little help with everything from a quick proofread to an extensive guidance session.

During my time as a student, I was named best critique writer of the term by my poetry professor and my Junior Writing... [more]

Effective and Innovative Writing Coach with 10 Years of Experience

I completed graduate coursework in English and American literature as part of my M.A. in American studies and Ph.D. in cultural studies. My M.A. thesis and Ph.D. dissertation both incorporated the use of literary criticism and textual analysis. The courses I taught in American studies required students to read and interpret novels, memoirs, and other literary works in historical context. I've taught Red Badge of Courage, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Frankenstein, The Souls of Black Folk, A Room of One's Own, My Year of Meats, the Illiad, Typical American, The Autobiography of Benjamin Frank [more]

Language Arts Wizard

I have studied literature at both the undergraduate and graduate college level. As an M.A. student, I completed a thesis on Charles Bukowski's first five novels. As a Writing Assistant, I also led a workshop on how to write essays on literature. For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing. I believe that revising and editing skills are vital to the writer. It is rare that a first draft of any piece of writing will ever be "complete," and as a tutor, I enjoy offering feedback on what [more]

Experienced writing instructor, journalist, published author

The sum total of what makes us human: our histories, hopes, creations, cultures, aspirations, triumphs and tragedies are all found in literature. It's often as unique and engaging as the writer who experienced or created the short story, novel, play, poem or essay. We each build our experiences with literature as early as pre-school and kindergarten, with stories our family and friends share with us, and we progress into elementary, middle and high school, with stops and starts along the way with trips to the library, bookstore or stories from home. In short, literature is a life-time journey. [more]

Excellent English tutor for writing; research; grammar; literature

I have taught high school English at both public schools (in Gary, Indiana) and a private Waldorf high school in Northridge, California. My degree is from Indiana University with majors in literature and creative writing (minors in comparative literature and psychology). I've worked as a social worker, practiced as a Gestalt therapist, and served as a "literary therapist" and editor for various writers, including Jimmy Komack (who once had seven shows on television at once).
