Tutoring in English and writing

I love to help students build their vocabulary. I have taught English and writing at the college level for nine years. Before that I was a professional writer. Vocabulary is so important, especially in this period when it has been limited by the use of technology. Sometimes 140 characters just won't do! Hello, I am a personable, empathetic teacher looking for more tutoring work. I enjoy working with people of all ages. I am currently a professor of English and writing at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. I enjoy assisting international students who need help with English [more]

First of all, I want you to know that you or your student would feel very safe and comfortable with me.

Home School tutor for Reading/English and Photography/Film Production

Vocabulary is an essential pair to writing. It takes a strong vocabulary to be able to vividly and effectively express your thoughts when writing papers. A rich vocabulary is something that is instilled continuously and that process can begin at a very young age. My engagement with older students in higher grades (2nd - 6th) includes teaching how to creatively and effectively express themselves in their writing using strong descriptive words that portray the spectrum of meaning they intend to convey.

Tutoring Services in English and the Social Sciences

Simply put, the study and enhancement of vocabulary is essential to any student. Students are often judged by their ability to understand jargon, and more unfamiliar vernacular. A wider vocabulary increases reading and writing ability and is tested specifically in most high stakes tests such as the ACT and SAT. Vocabulary is not a stand alone subject, but a necessary one for the improvement of reading and writing instruction. Throughout my teaching career, I have enjoyed, most of all, working with small group tutorials or one-on-one tutoring sessions. I feel that the tutorial setting is the mo [more]
