Experienced & Dedicated in English, Writing, Literature, Test Prep

My strongest qualification for teaching SAT writing is that I have had great success teaching writing in general. The majority of my Lake Forest students, where I taught for three decades and served as department chair, as well as those whom I taught during my 16 summers at Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development, later returned or contacted me to tell me that I had made the difference in the writings, the appreciation for literature, and their general command of the skills inherent in the English class. I have honed these skills while teaching writing of all kinds to student [more]

Test Prep Master & Scholar w/ Over 20 Yrs Experience, 50+ Subjects

As a poet and recipient of a master's in comparative literature, I have a very strong writing background. I have been teaching the Writing section of the SAT for more than a decade. I was initially trained by Kaplan, where I taught for many years, and continue to favor their materials and methods. However, I am flexible and well-versed enough in the exam to employ whatever materials my students prefer. I completed my M.A. in Comparative Literature on full fellowship at the University of Southern California (USC). I have over twenty years of experience as a teacher, tutor, and academic mentor.

Experienced Writing, English, and Composition Tutor

Hey there! I'm Ammar. I've been a professional editor for a year now, and one of the biggest things I've noticed is that many people think writing is something intimidating or daunting, or reading is boring and doesn't interest them.

Master the English Language - It's not as Hard as it Looks!

As a Language Arts teacher specializing in teaching Reading, English and Writing Skills for the SAT, I teach my students to interpret SAT writing prompts correctly. Next, I help my students practice responses to these prompts by using appropriate sentence structure, vocabulary , transitions and organization. My experience with writing and editing helps me guide my students to proofread and edit their own work, and to make necessary changes. Another important aspect of SAT Writing is time management, and by practicing thoroughly with a wide array of writing prompts, I train my students to compl [more]

Seasoned English Teacher - Tutor for Writing, Reading, Test Prep

All kids can learn, so it is imperative to meet them where they are and value where they are. From this place of acknowledgement and respect, I feel like I stand a chance of engaging kids in meaningful inquiry of their lives through literature and written expression. Once I know the student, then we can proceed to build on their skills. I listen well, and I encourage students to learn for the sake of learning, not necessarily to improve grades or test scores (although, those improvements wil... [more]
