"IN PERSON and ONLINE tutoring available

I am a knowledgeable and caring teacher/tutor with 20 years of experience, and the author of four teaching guides. I was recently a member of an online course development team for the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), and an editor for an SSAT study guide.

I provide provide individual and small group tutoring for Writing, Reading, Spanish, Speech, SAT, ACT, AP English Language, AP English Literature, and AP US History. I've worked for the major standardized test companies, so I know how tests are created, and how test developers create questions to challenge (and sometimes confuse) students.

I also help GRADUATE students with their masters' theses and doctoral dissertations in fields such as English Language and Literature, Communications, ESL, Education, Psychology, Sociology, and Public Health.

A good tutor listens to a student's issues, understands how the student perceives a subject, and gets a grasp of the particular problems she or he may have. By learning WHY a student is having difficulties, a tutor should develop an individualized student plan, so that she or he can eventually "self-tutor."

With a certificate in Counseling Psychology, I can help develop learning strategies for students that don't fit neatly into a typical student profile, for example, those with ADHD or dyslexia.

I've had a lot of formal education, but I've always tried to stay well-rounded. When I attended college, I was a member of the track and wrestling teams.

About hourly rates: Hourly tutoring rate does not include commuting and preparation time. What may seem a high per hour rate is actually far less for the tutor. For example, an Uber driver may earn $20 or 25 per hour, but he or she does not require extra time that tutoring does. If we can schedule tutoring sessions online or within a fifteen minute drive, I'd be happy to request an adjustment in the rate.
