Hi! Do you need help with your writing? Close reading? These are my areas of expertise. I'm a former college instructor, tenured public school teacher and business writer who won an award or two for my work. I love to write! The way I help students is by having a fun conversation about the subject of the writing, helping them to create and get passed "writer's block", I'm energetic, positive and nurturing of success.
I've been a teacher for a long time, 20 years. I graduated college with a B.A. in English/Communications and M.A. and Ed.M in Education. I went to Columbia University to achieve my two masters' degrees and graduated with honors. I taught ELA in middle school (grades 6 and 8) for 12 years and I taught Writing and Composition to freshmen in college for 5 years. Before that I was a freelance business writer (resumes, business letters, proofreading, transcribing) for 7 years. I've taught many students over the years and enjoy academic coaching! Some former students stay in touch as friends and as my LinkedIn connections. I'm really proud of their accomplishments in their lives. They've succeeded at doing well in English, getting into college, and achieving jobs in successful careers like public relations, acting and news journalism among other fields.
My rates are standard at $25 per hour. I travel within 1-3 miles of my home in Dumont, New Jersey. Payment is given at the start of the session and a guardian or family member must be at home while I"m tutoring otherwise the session is cancelled. For Skype tutoring I offer a 20% discount and clients pay through Paypal first, then the hour long session is offered immediately after.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English and Communications, teaching certification in Elementary and Secondary English and two master's degrees in Education from Columbia University in NYC. I've been teaching 20 years and was twice tenured in a NYS public school. I've also written professionally as a freelance writer and won some awards in advertising for my work.
