Writing

I am a private tutor and have taught freshman composition as an adjunct professor in a university.

SAT Writing

There are strategies one can use to improve SAT English scores, and I can help you ascertain which ones you need to use. I can help you see which areas are your challenges, and focus on improving your scores in those areas. In particular, I have graded the essay portions of standardized tests and know what is required.
