William M. - I consistently score in the top 1-2 % on the SAT

My name is Billy. I have an engineering degree and an MBA. I am a published author and member of the Mensa society. After years as an executive in a NYC based, international firm, and a mid-forties semi-retirement, I've turned my attention to helping students excel on the all-important SAT college entrance exam. While I mention my success first because I believe the overall success of a person should be a key factor considered when hiring a tutor, I also have plenty of experience tutoring ... [more]

Language Teacher

I have a bachelor of arts degree in English literature, and I have also successfully completed a year long post-graduate teacher training course (higher diploma in education)in which English was one of my teaching subjects. Languages have always been fascinating subjects for me and my fascination led me to choose two languages as my college majors - English Literature and Arabic grammar. I also studied French for six years at Middle and High School and also attended Ndebele classes (an African language) after completing college. My love and passion for languages compels me to engage my stude [more]

Effective writing for business

I can teach you how to write smoothly, clearly, concisely, and in an even tone. Good writing starts with organizing your thoughts and ends with work that is attractively laid out on the page. Between these two points lie using standard grammar and punctuation, choosing the right words, omitting what is unnecessary, and editing your work. Not only can I teach you what to do, but also how you can put the lessons into practice according to your own pace and temperament. Law is a literary... [more]

Great with understanding students and helping them understand the work

I understand how difficult writing can be and how frustrating grammar is for many students. Nevertheless, I believe with a little help, everyone can learn to communicate clearly and effectively. I took honors writing courses in high school and college, and I have even done some freelance writing. More importantly, however, I have taught and tutored writing to all levels including ESL learners, and I promise to take your writing to the next level. I love helping people understand subject matter and walking through the learning process with them. I am also very patient and understanding. I strug [more]

Ivy League Tutor

I am an ivy-league educated writer of fictional stories, political essays, travel journals, and technical writing for grant applications for bio-research projects. Writing, like any other skill, must be practiced on a regular basis. This helps develop the courage to say what must be said, and the ability to find the right words to completely encompass what you are trying to say. Important to developing an aptitude for writing is to cultivate a large vocabulary; reading a great deal helps with this. Making a habit of daily writing practice will sharpen your abilities. Best of all, you wil [more]
