Writing Professional and Humanities Tutor: Middle School-College

I proofread and edit for different organizations and help authors prepare their manuscripts for print. Hello! My name is Rachel and I graduated magna cum laude with high honors with a degree in journalism and the classical liberal arts. I find nothing more rewarding than coming to understand a concept or book and communicating my thoughts clearly to others, and I love helping students discover that joy themselves. During my years at college, I worked in the Student Study Center, helping fellow students brainstorm, organize, and polish their college assignments. I use intentional questions and [more]

Encouraging, gentle tutor specializing in special needs

People need to feel safe in order to learn anything, so my tutoring philosophy is, "I don't shame, blame, or judge." I can help you improve, no matter what your grade is, how far behind you are, or why you need help. I can even help you cram, if you have a test tomorrow. :) I have been a private and professional tutor for 10 years. I have taught kids age 5-13 who had ADHD, ASD, and behavior difficulties, and tutored middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and graduate stude... [more]

Your Success is My Highest Priority

I have mastered skills in many diverse areas. Determination, confidence, and knowing how to study have been the keys to my success. I focus on helping my students build these fundamental attributes in addition to learning the subject. After 14 years in government-sponsored research, I turned to education out of the desire to work in a more people-centric field. I have been an adjunct math instructor at Harper College for the past nine years. I have taught math courses to students ... [more]

Experienced Business English and IELTS Teacher

While teaching English to business professionals in Taiwan, I proofread correspondence including email, as well as proposals which were submitted to their clients. As I helped my students to improve their writing, I also proofread and helped them correct short essays. Some of my students where also changing jobs, so I proofread and helped them improve their resumes. My corrections included proper punctuation. Also, due to my proficiency in the English language, any errors or inconsistencies tend to just jump out at me as I read. [more]

180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

Proofreading is one my strongest skills, period. If you require help in polishing something you've already written, I can ensure that the work you ultimately submit will not contain any embarrassing errors. My greatest specialty is with the law school entrance exam, known (and dreaded) by soon-to-be law students as the LSAT. I've taught the LSAT for 9 years, scored a 180 on the September 2009 LSAT, and several of my students scored in the 99th percentile and moved into LSAT teaching themselves. Not only do I have a perfect score, I also know what it takes to get you where you want to be on the [more]

Experienced and compassionate ESL Teacher

Changing places and cultures can be a stressful experience, but learning a language doesn't have to be. I like playing games and having fun while teaching so that the emotional pressure is minimized and learning is easier and steady. The student is the focus of my teaching with both process and goals considered. I enjoy all ages of students who want to learn at basic to intermediate levels and want to incorporate their own interests into the learning experience. Reading is one way to enjo... [more]
