Experienced Tutor Specializing in Test Prep & Students w. Disabilities

I have been tutoring liberal arts subjects for the last nine years. My focus recently has been on test preparation, and I work well with students of all ages.

I have had the opportunity to work with students who have ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, and other officially und... [more]

Writing

I am a published writer, a professional blogger and have coached multiple award winning scripts. My experience with teaching encompasses working with elementary aged students all the way to coaching college level writing. With a firm foundation in grammar paired with a strong rhetorical style, I can help any writer reach their educational or professional goals.


English

I am a published author and an amateur blogger. For the past several years I have been working with students from grade school through professional writers to coach them on writing for classes, standardized tests and competitions. I work together with students to first set reasonable goals and then provide a framework for helping them achieve those goals. Thanks for reading - Let me know if you have any questions! I look forward to working with you.

SAT Reading

I have been tutoring students for the SAT for the past 6 years. My students typically see a significant increase in their scores after working with me and working consistently through the homework assignments. I believe test preparation should be about helping students reach their academic goals, not about tons of homework or unnecessary pressure. I see my job as that of a partner with the student to help them do their best.

Elementary Math


Elementary (K-6th)

I was raised in a homeschooling family. Tutoring was a part of my life from very early on as the oldest of my siblings. I have also worked in Montessori schools, studied basic child development, nannied for over 3 years and worked as a paid tutor for numerous families with kids K-6th grade. For younger children I like setting up clear objectives, incorporating positive re-enforcement, and as much as possible making the learning the game that it should be at that age. For older and more advanced children my strategy doesn't change much, but the pace and the work I encourage them to do on their own is greater.


General Music

I have been a musician since I was able to speak. I learned to read music almost before I learned to read books. My primary instrument is voice, but I have background teaching Piano and music theory (privately and with a Montessori school). I can play the flute and I recently picked up the harp. I toured the rocky mountain region for three years with the CAHSA choir (1997-2000), and I studied piano from 1994-2002 During my time at the University of Denver, I pursued my musical training performing with the Women's choral and taking private voice lessons and the Lamont Conservatory.


Career Development

My experience in this area is primarily with high school students, although I have worked with advanced middle-school students some as well. My mother developed a college prep program about five years ago, and since then I have toured with her, helping teach her seminars. We focused on test taking skills, resume development, strategizing with college applications and essay writing, as well as several sessions on how to get scholarships. I taught a number of my own classes as well as helping her with her sessions. I love working with students and helping them get ready to take on the challenge of preparing for life after high school - whether that's vocational school, traditional college, or something else like apprenticeships or entrepreneurship. My goal is to work closely with student and parent to create a comprehensive strategy to take the student anywhere they want to go.


ISEE

I love working with young students to prepare them with test taking skills that they can use not only to ace the ISEE, but as they continue taking tests throughout their academic careers. With this in mind I work on review of material as well as on test taking strategy. Test taking is about showcasing what you know. Your students deserves all the tools they need to show their skills to the full extent of their potential.
