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]

With 14 years of high school English Teaching and ACT Preparedness experience, I try to stay one step ahead of the ACT and dissect each question. I also have de... [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.

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]
