Expert in ACT/SAT prep, Middle/High School English, Speech, and Drama

I am a professional writer and playwright, having written over 30 published plays. I had a 27-year career with a large computer firm where I was responsible for writing numerous professional-level business briefs and many pieces of marketing literature. I also have a Masters degree in teaching English for grades 6-12. Hi all. I teach English, Speech, and Acting. If you're looking for someone who is a strict taskmaster, teaches through fear, and uses a ruler to rap the hands of your child when they get something wrong, read no further. Alas, I am not that person. I believe in instilling the joy [more]

College Math Instructor

I wrote 40 books, mostly high school (and junior high) math texts and ancillaries (teachers editions, activities manuals, and test packets with keys) but also a geography text, a logic text, and seven general-interest books. I also have two unpublished manuscripts. While writing the math texts, I also passed the editorial test and edited for a few years. I have taught at 7 different colleges (public, private, and technical). I received awards for my teaching based on student evaluations - mostly because I am patient and take time to tutor students having trouble. I have also written high schoo [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.

Language Arts, English, Reading, Social Sciences, Special Needs

As a language arts teacher, I pride myself on how may gains my students make in a year in the subject of writing.

As a veteran educator, I know individual attention can significantly impact student achievement. Throughout my ten years of teaching, I have had the privilege of giving students the knowledge, tools, and strateg [more]
