English, ACT, Writing, Anatomy/Physiology, Algebra 1, Geometry

Though I have successfully worked with students trying to increase their ACT by one point to achieve a perfect score, I specialize in working with struggling/reluctant students and athletes trying to maintain a required GPA. While teaching high school English, my focus was on literature, writ... [more]

Experienced Trainer and Encourager

When it comes to writing a paper or preparing a presentation/speech, I have the easiest way to get you to your goal. I have a way of explaining subjects in a different manner that help you to understand to big picture and the little snapshots along the way. To be honest, I struggled in grade school and high school. Teachers gave up on me; I fell between the cracks and was passed year after year. In my senior year in high school, an English teacher and a school psychologist gave me attention and my C and D grades went to A's and B's. I made the Honor Roll for the first time ever! I started enjo [more]

Local author, private tutor, former Princeton Review instructor

I worked for McDougal Littell for six years, and worked as a fact-checker and researcher in their Social Studies division. I contributed to over a dozen major history textbooks, including "The Americans," still widely-used at the high school level. Helped with editing and titles, and worked as a freelancer for them on numerous projects. I've written a two-volume illustrated history (published by Higginson Books) earlier this year (2017), and wrote a history of Geneva in 2014. I absolutely love helping students succeed, and have been involved in the field of education since the late 1990s. [more]

English instruction from a professional editor/published author

I have been writing my heart out for many years. Writing is a true passion for me. I revel in the language, and I delight in the many ways we have of putting it together to convey meaning.

I am a professional editor, publisher, and author with more than 25 years of experience in the field and as a teacher of English composition, editing, literature, and creative writing. I earned an MFA in writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, an MA in English from Roosevelt University, and a BA in English from the Unive [more]

Over Thirty Years of Teaching Middle-School English

Probably the best compliment I received as a writing teacher of eighth-graders was when the top freshman English teacher at the high school we fed into said that he could tell which students had been taught by me. I attribute that to having the students write everyday, writing all types of discourse (persuasive, expository, and narrative), and taking selected pieces through the entire writing process. Even in today's world of emails, Twitter, and texting, good writing is something which is of great benefit to all who possess it. [more]

Excited to help with Biology, Psychology, Neuroscience, & English

Writing has been one of my best strengths since at least high school, where I excelled in honors English courses (both language and literature). I took AP Language and received a 5 on the AP Test, and on one ACT test I scored a 35 on the English portion; on the GRE I was in the 90th percentile for the Verbal Reasoning section and in the 93rd percentile for the Analytical Writing section. In college I had significant writing projects in many subjects; these subjects include Creative Writing, Psychology, Philosophy, Biology, City Planning, Environmental Sustainability, Linguistics, etc. In many [more]
