Certified English & Language Arts Teacher w/ 10+ Yrs Experience in Greater Houston

Methodology

Quality learning and teaching always begins with a solid goal in mind. Together, we will generate S.M.A.R.T. Goals and track weekly progress toward that goal, and adjust plans as needed. My methods focus primarily on simplification and real-world application. I also assess every student's particular learning style, and adjust lessons accordingly.

Background

I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Missouri in Columbia. My GPA in English courses was 3.9 and I had a composite ACT score of 31. I was a professional writing tutor at Lone Star College in northwest Houston for over a year, and I am also a certified Texas English Language Arts teacher for grades 6-12. I have been teaching in the classroom for just over 5 years, and I have been tutoring for just over 10.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $25/h

Details

Please talk to me individually to discuss individual rates. Don't let "sticker shock" scare you away - I can be flexible and arrangements can often be made. I send discounts, coupons, etc. frequently as well. If travelling over 10 miles, a $5-$10 travel fee may apply.
Please cancel at least 8 hours before a session.

Helped me with a composition course essay I had to write as a prerequisite. I passed with a 5/5 and don’t have to take an intro class anymore!

Josh has been tutoring our daughter since the beginning of the summer and her improvements are beyond impressive. He is so knowledgeable and passionate about the content. Our daughter just loves her time working with "Mr. B" and he has truly become a little piece of our family as well. You definitely get "bang for your buck" with him as he is always willing to help outside your official hour and doesn't charge if you go over a little.
