University English teacher/tutor with 25+yrs experience in analytical reading/writing and verbal test prep. Located in Raleigh, NC

Methodology

In classes and individual tutoring, I work both on the goals of the class (e.g., raising scores on the SAT) and on the strengths and needs of individual students. Instruction is always combined with hands on practice. I emphasize and demonstrate process so that students can learn how to take a test or how to turn their reading into writing.

Background

I taught for 30+ years at the Univ of Mass Boston and the Harvard Extension School. I have tutored students in academic composition and the verbal sections of the SAT and ACT for 15+years. I ran an ESL and citizenship program for adult learners for 5 years. I have worked successfully with diverse students, ranging in age, background and ethnicity. I now live in Raleigh, NC
