Ivy Grad - Flexible, Friendly, Gets Results (10+ Years Experience)

I went to Princeton University and majored in molecular biology. I've been tutoring continuously since high school, both as a private tutor and as a volunteer, in subjects all across the board. I simply really love education -- both learning and teaching. And I always excelled at standardized testing, so I enjoy helping students succeed by taking the stress and mystery out of the verbal, math, and grammar/syntax questions on the SAT, ACT, and other common tests. If you've been muddling alo... [more]

Experienced ACT/SAT tutor, Certified Teacher, Math and English

I had an experience proofreading, editing, and writing headlines for news and sports for a newspaper in Colorado Springs. That experience helped reinforce the idea that good writing comes from good proofreading and editing, and great writing doesn't typically just spring from that first draft. I can help students to appreciate how proofreading can really improve their writing. I am a certified teacher with 16 years of teaching experience and nearly seven years of tutoring experience, specializing in preparing students for the ACT and SAT. I have a solid history of results with students typical [more]

Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...

I spent ten years as a free-lance editor/writer. I can both proofread for spelling and grammar and for usage.

As a tutor of all things verbal, I bring a wide range of experience and training. I hold an MA in English and Creative Writing from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I did two years of additional graduate work in Comparative Literature at Kent State and I studied English and American Literature with a concentration [more]

ESL & French Tutor

As an assistant teacher for ESL, my job description included a lot of proofreading student papers. I also provided one-on-one instruction about the numerous rules and exceptions to the rules in the English language. For example, did you know that the rule "i before e except after c" has more exceptions than examples? I am an experienced French tutor. I graduated from Loyola University Chicago in May 2016 with a B.A. in French. I have taken French for 12 years (or ever since third grade in elementary school). I have read many novels in French, including En Attendant Godot, L'?tranger, Germinal [more]

18 Years Teaching College Writing - Patient and good listener

Many think of proofreading as an afterthought - something you do after the writing is complete. While proofreading is a final writing task, it should be considered as part of the overall writing process. While I offer proofreading services; I also teach students how to proofread their own works. I use a series of techniques and tools that, when used properly, eliminate errors that are commonly missed by computer Spellcheck systems and the human eye. I have 18 years teaching college writing that includes proofreading exercises. Plus, I often proofread documents for corporate clients. [more]
