I tailor feedback to your writing strengths and challenges. You send me your paper, expressing your concerns and areas of weakness. I give feedback in these areas and general feedback. My comments are thorough, specific, and specialized to your situation.
I most often work with students who struggle to respond to writing prompts from their English classes. Literary analysis and arguments (researched or not researched) are my specialties, though not the only types of academic writing I can help with. My approach is collaborative.

I am very attentive to detail! I will help you pick apart an essay so that your tone is refined and your grammar is excellent. I prepare weekly writing activities and provide you with engaging practice prompts to perfect your writing.
I believe that the best way to improve one's writing is to write as much as possible. Therefore, I am a strong proponent of frequent free writing. I evaluate writing in terms of higher versus lower order concerns (examples of higher order concerns include structure, content, and clarity, while lower order concerns have more to do with sentence-level issues like grammar and mechanics).
My teaching method is eclectic and focused on the material required for comprehension as well as the skilled delivery needed. I am a student-centered educator owing to the classic work of Carl Rogers--the client/student determines the specific needs to be met and methodology required by faithfully representing how much they know and how much they want to know.
I am a National Board Certified Teacher. I am certified in literacy, English, science, and gifted education for all grade levels. In addition to teaching, I also have two years experience as a curriculum developer focusing on AP Literature and AP Language. My lessons are hands-on, engaging, interactive, and purposeful.
-Four graduate degrees in literature, including the Ph.D. -Two recent books on literary subjects -Method of instruction: The student writes; I read, ask questions, and request greater depth and clarity; the student re-writes...
I work with students who are preparing for standardized test, such as the ACT and SAT, or who need a tutor for Algebra 1 and 2. I believe in using more than one method to get to the answer, as long as it can be mathematically proven.
I give lessons to students from primary school to college level. My techniques are to provide suggestions and areas of revision for student's papers, instead of simply editing their work. I also provide context and support for literature, but will not read the student's chapters for them.
Associate in Arts from College of the Albemarle - Bachelor of Arts from Campbell University - Some post-graduate experience at UNCW I was a tutor at both COA and CU while I was a student. I was also awarded the "President's List" distinction while at COA and was published in the CU school newspaper and the CU poetry magazine whenever I submitted articles or poems, respectively.
I dismiss my students by saying "go make mistakes". I believe that students are taught to adhere to social norms thus causing them to suppress their voice. Making mistakes provides opportunities for self-exploration and growth. During my time as a teaching assistant and public speaking instructor, I have found that students are typically driven by grades.
My teaching method is to allow students to develop their ideas through academic exercise and dialogue. I want to assist middle and high school students in fully engaging with the material being taught in their English classes and help them develop as writers.
An advocate of mastery-based learning, I am emphatic about teaching to the student — i.e. pacing lessons appropriately, implementing visual and kinesthetic curriculum, and galvanizing the unique talents each student possesses. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of a student’s confidence grow.
As an educator, I believe that students function best within educational settings when they feel respected, able to express their own individuality, and supported. With these priorities in mind, many of my lessons employ a specific chronological flow. Firstly, I dedicate a prominent amount of instruction time to introducing concepts and/or skill sets.
I meet each student where they are by highlighting their strengths, breaking down the basics of rhetorical expression, providing thorough proofreading and research guidance, and making the writing process a unique, individualized, and utterly enjoyable experience.
Greetings! Thank you for considering my services. If you are a high school student, we may make a good match. My primary focus revolves around anything having to do with non-fiction and fiction analysis, grammar, and writing. I am a patient and positive tutor who will motivate and guide you.
Although my tutoring experience is limited to an informal setting, I'm confident in assisting students with English coursework and essay writing on a one-on-one basis. I tailor my approach based on student grade level, deadlines, and assignment guidelines. My primary goal as a tutor is GPA optimization and building writing skills and sustainable habits to achieve and maintain academic success.
I approach learning English in the same way a carpenter approaches building a house. I start with a strong foundation in English (sentence structure, concepts of grammar, subject-verb identification), and then I help my students build their knowledge of English, to the point where students feel comfortable and confident speaking, reading, writing, and listening in English.
Each tutoring session is tailored to meet the student's needs. While one session may be full of essay brainstorming and editing, another may be focused on understanding and analyzing a piece of literature.
I base my classes on where students are when we begin. If they need remedial help, I offer basic grammar and structure lessons. For those more advanced, techniques for writing research papers, essays, and other genres and levels of writing.
I can help with essay writing by using the same strategies I employ in my own papers. I will help the student formulate a research question and thesis. Second, I will help the student gather credible sources and share my knowledge on obtaining valuble information from those sources. Finally is essay structure and writing.
I would describe my methodology as hands on, differentiated, and modern. Every student needs a unique approach to learning, and I think that bringing in prior knowledge of popular culture genres can be a way to engage today's students! Technology has changed the way we read and write, and technology provides many innovative ways to help 21st century students learn.
I look to tutor students in English and Public Speaking both in person and via Skype. All of my students will receive the help they need and deserve in order to become a better English student and Public Speaker. Those seeking help with just English, will tell me their strengths and weaknesses, and I will prioritize the weaknesses in all of my lessons.
My instruction is student-focused. I base my lessons off of the needs and goals of my students, making sure that objectives are understood and met. I use a lot of discussion in my instruction to help students come to grasp the content in their own way and on their level, then expanding that knowledge to broader applications.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics from Stony Brook University, where I also minored in both Creative Writing and Writing & Rhetoric. I am a master of words, combining my passion for creative writing with my strong academic writing skills.
I focus on evaluating the student's current skill set and identifying the areas in which they personally need refinement. It is important that we be able to meet face to face via an online video chat. Once we have met, I will be able to recommend specific areas for us to work through together to improve your knowledge, skill set, and rhetorical skills.
I am open to teaching whatever you most need help with: test prep, thesis composition, vocabulary, grammar, rhetoric, or reading and comprehension. However, I teach mainly from a classical approach, synthesizing ethos, pathos, and logos with rhetoric and creativity. I love connecting different ideas and concepts.
The most important part of teaching is to get to know your student(s), their goals and objectives as well as their strengths and weaknesses. This is best achieved by diagnostic lessons as well as personal interview. Once we develop a mutual and achievable goal, the results will follow. I will work with students and adults from ages 12 and up.
Although I am proficient with English grammar and am happy to help edit essays for grammatical mistakes, my emphasis in tutoring is to analyze the structure of a paper.
