A graduate student well versed in mathematics and the sciences

I have a couple of tutoring styles that I try to see what works best for a given student (as I know we all learn differently). For example, I learn th... [more]

ELA Instructor with More Than Twenty Years Experience

The language arts consists of many components. When these are brought together, one communicates effectively and, sometimes, beautifully. Books are the models for this communication. I've always liked to read, but it wasn't until college that I learned to love to read. One of my professors, Sister Elizabeth Varley, taught me about the beauty of the written word. She taught me how to analyze the structure of literature and value word choice (vocabulary), and I can teach you-not only how to re... [more]

Freelance Arts Journalist and Writing Teacher

Dear Students and Parents, When I was in school, I had favorite teachers. They weren't merely the ones who were funny and nice; they were the ones who engaged me, enthralled me and taught me lessons and skills that I use and benefit from today. English -- or, really, anything involving reading, writing and communicating -- was and continues to be my true love. Having taught creative writing for years, as well as worked successfully with students on their application essays for college a... [more]
