Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

Writing lessons focus on generating fluency in writing from oral fluency, organization of ideas, development of ideas, refinement, and mechanics. Sentence structure, precision of language and grammatical accuracy are taught. The next focus is the five sentence paragraph with attention to the logical development of ideas. Paragraphs are then built into the standard five paragraph essay from which longer writing is built. Writing is based on reading selections, videos and general fund of knowledge enhanced by research. Creative work is also done to balance formulaic writing with more free indivi [more]

Harvard 2X Test Expert: Top Scores on LSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE

In high school, my English teacher predicted that I would flunk out of college because I was such a poor writer. Well, I felt encouraged to improve. And I did. I graduated near the top of my class, with much praise for my undergraduate thesis that was selected to be placed in the Harvard archives. In the process, I became aware that the way most people teach writing makes it harder -- not easier. In recent years, I've helped people who didn't think they could write to create works that are viewed as outstanding by everyone who reads them. Whether the problem is finding a topic, getting orga [more]

I have taught English at the high school level for the past nine years at a school outside of Boston and therefore am extremely comfortable teaching and tutoring students with any writing assignment they may have.

For seven years I also tutored students after school at a program called Homework Help where I worked with high school students and would help them in a number of subjects (though Englis [more]
