Well-versed 13-year tutor in grammar school English, History, and Math

The English portion of the SAT covers two main areas: multiple-choice, and the essay. The multiple-choice portion reflects spelling, grammar, and punctuation, and how to correct sentences and paragraphs using those mechanics of writing. The essay is more open-ended, and asks the test-taker to comment on an assigned question or topic in question. An essay is built upon the following layout: Introduction, Main Body, Conclusion. In opinionated essays, the 1-paragraph introduction alerts the reader as to the background of a given topic of interest on the writer's part, as well as their own i [more]

Professional Statistics Tutor, Harvey Mudd Grad

As a professional SAT Writing tutor, I focus on the moment-by-moment experience my students have while doing each specific type of problem this test offers. By noticing where they get in their own way, my students develop their own techniques and learn how to teach themselves. I fully expect, for example, that you will find that the SAT Writing section treats you much better when you apply the Process of Elimination to each problem. I serve merely as a guide for this self-discovery and have seen phenomenal results with this approach. [more]

Experienced Writing Coach?College Applications, English, Journalist

I excel at working with writers of all ages. As a father of two college students, I have a particular interest in helping young minds find their voices with their personal statements and essays. I listen patiently, help writers brainstorm, and validate their ideas. It?s amazing what writers can do with a dose of self-confidence. Once they get their ideas down on paper, then we focus on the nuts and bolts of the writing craft, whether it?s sentence structure, spelling, or grammar. I am an acc... [more]
