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

Experienced English and German Tutor (native speaker)

Education is my passion. "Education", from the Latin, means "to lead out of." We need to open ourselves up to the world around us. There is so much going on. New discoveries in science open up the universe and find cures for diseases. Hi-tech communication puts the world at our finger tips. We just have to learn to discover our world and the people in it. And we cannot blindly accept what is offered to us. Knowledge in different areas helps us to be critical thinkers. Speaking German... [more]

All Elementary/Middle School - ADD/ADHD - ABA Therapist

Working as a marketing communications manager, one of my roles is to proofread all material that goes out to the public, for print and the Web. In teaching proofreading I help my writer clients to understand the standard rules of punctuation, active or passive voice, rules of grammar, how to use proofreader's marks, and using these tools to achieve their writing objectives. If a student or other client wants to retain me to proofread a term paper or other report I will mark up hard copy with a red pen using standard proofreader's marks (I provide a key to these marks). I will advise client on [more]
