Here to Help You in Your March to Success!

I am qualified by WyzAnt to tutor all aspects of American English skills offered: reading, writing, grammar, spelling, proofreading and vocabulary. I have tutored many clients, adults and teenagers especially, in speaking and listening to American English. I am an avid reader and a technical writer by trade. Both experiences have contributed to my spelling and vocabulary skills. I enjoy immensely seeing words that are "officially" admitted into US English, which, to date, is on a state by state basis, although many grant sanctioning power to Webster's Dictionary. I find two tools particula [more]

Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

The best way to develop a large vocabulary is to read, read, read! Keeping a little notebook of "new" words and jotting down a short definition (preferably in your own words) and reviewing these words once a week will work wonders. I can work with students on getting to know some Greek and Latin word origins, learning the meanings of specific prefixes and suffixes, and learning how to get the most use out of what a good dictionary offers. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writin [more]
