Proofreading

Proofreading requires an eye for critical reading, critical writing, vocabulary, and above all, a basic knowledge of style and grammar. My command of the English language and my ability to communicate through writing are what make my proofreading skills exceptional.


SAT Reading

My experience as an AP Literature and Composition teacher has provided me with the opportunity to teach my students to learn how to read critically, to write critically, and to think critically. This is the key to scoring high marks on the SAT Reading portion of the SAT Test.


SAT Writing

I work with the individual student to discover his or her strengths and weaknesses and instill tools and strategies for success on the Reading and Writing sections of the SAT. These tools also translate into success in the language arts classroom.


PSAT

I have experience coaching 10th grade students to prepare for, as well as evaluate, PSAT testing strategies and results.

ACT English

Currently, I am a Professor of English and teach both literature and composition classes. I have been successfully coaching students for the ACT since 2010.


Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in the area of study skills from my experience teaching LD high school students, with a variety of learning challenges, for over 11 years. I have experience working with guidance counselors, ESL leaders, and parents to coordinate extra time, special assignments, and organizational direction to improve the success of struggling students. As a tutor with over 200 hours, I have experience working with students who have a variety of learning disabilities and have taught them to be efficient and successful students by organizing their assignments, their writing, and their postings to the extent that they have modeled this behavior in all subjects, not just the ones with which I am involved. Effective study skills can translate beyond the classroom and should be practiced in everyday behavior until this behavior becomes habit.


Classics

I have a Master's Degree in Liberal Studies from Rollins College. My degree of study began with the works of Homer and extended through Greek philosophy to include the pre-Socratics, moved through Virgil and other Roman classics. My study of the Classics includes: poetry, philosophy, drama, and art. I have relocated to Palm Beach County to pursue a PhD in Comparative Literature at FAU.
