Local author, AP teacher, 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]

180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

From research-grade papers to more literary pursuits, I bring a healthy dose of practical experience and artistry to the craft.

I've taught the LSAT for 9 years, scored a 180 on the September 2009 LSAT, and several of my students scored in the 99th percentile and moved into LSAT tea [more]

Versatile all-encompassing health science tutor.

Writing is the art learned after learning to read well. When you write something you are expressing your thoughts, so as to communicate with the reader. So a lot of your emotion should flow into that thought and make the reader feel it. Good writing does not involve using very high sounding words and complicate by writing endless compound sentences. Simple words of expression elicit better response from the reader. Breaking up long winding sentences into 2 or 3 smaller ones sends the message across more effectively. It is a good practice to break up the subject, into smaller paragraphs, under [more]
