Language Arts


I tutor all English and language arts subjects including writing, reading, reading comprehension, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, literature, and spelling. I prepare tutoring lesson plans to supplement the student's language arts course curriculum and also provide workbooks and study materials that correlate to current state standards. My goal is to insure students are motivated and performing above-grade level.

Across the Curriculum


The advantages of improving the student's academic writing and reading comprehension skills extend beyond English classes to many other subject areas as a student's reading and writing proficiency often determines his or her general learning ability.

The French scientist Louis Pasteur once said, “Chance favors the prepared mind.”  I thoroughly prepare students for all academic challenges. 

Standardized Test Strategies


By using actual practice exams and preparation materials such as the highly-rated Barron's©, Kaplan© and Princeton Review©, I teach students specific testing principles and strategies guaranteed to raise composite scores on all standardized tests.

ACT - SAT English, Reading, and Writing


I have extensive experience working with students who need assistance with grammar, composition, reading comprehension, and preparation for the English, critical reading and essay writing portions of the PSAT, SAT and ACT exams.*   I also specialize in the SAT Subject Test in Literature. 

SAT Literature Subject Test


I am uniquely qualified to prepare students for the SAT Subject Test in Literature. The SAT Subject test scores will give college admissions staff a fuller picture of a student's academic background and a good score can distinguish the college candidate from a large pool of applicants. Even colleges that don't require a subject test will often look at them.
