Education and Tutoring

tutoringLearning the Word – Tutoring for SAT, ACT, Grammar, Writing

I’ve had over fifteen years of experience in tutoring students to take the verbal portion of the Scholastic Aptitude Test for college entrance, including several years with a major test-taking company. However, I have found that the need goes deeper than test-taking techniques.

Building Blocks of Good Communication

Along with tutoring for college entrance exams, I offer a more comprehensive approach to learning the basics of grammar and writing. Writing demands attention to the details of structure and grammar as well as clear thinking and precise wording. These are the building blocks of good writing.

You are never too old to improve your writing. Even college students and professionals can benefit from honing their written communication skills. Good writing is a valuable skill in any business. Your boss will thank me.

Tutoring and Classes

I offer one-on-one tutoring all year, but watch the web site for special summer programs and group classes. My expertise is backed by:

  • A BA in English
  • A Masters in Professional Writing
  • Over thirty years of communicating ideas in writing, speaking, and teaching

Call or email for an appointment and evaluation. For SAT tutoring, please allow at least eight weeks of lead time before the exam.
