Get an A in English; Prepare for the SAT; Grow to Love Literature - English Tutor with 15 Years Experience

Methodology

Developing fun, affable personal rapport and using classic literature (from the Wizard of Oz to Shakespeare), I motivate my students through vocabulary enrichment and technical grammar proficiency to reach their A-level potential.

Background

I've taught English and related subjects for 15 years at Ivy-league prep tutoring businesses and inside the community college system. I'm a first-class motivator who teaches his students to attain greatness. My students learn to love reading and English, after which, success follows.
