Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
My typical process it to first ask a news student what my student's goals are? Is my new students here for literature or writing or both? For litearture tutoring, we will read books as well as literary criticism of such books when working with upper level high school students. We will analyze characters' and actions and behaviors. We will study setting including historical context. For writing, I will first review a student's writing sample. If working on writing for SAT/ACT essay prep, we will review the prompt and look at model essays.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BA in English and an MS in secondary education.
