What Can I Do for You?

Tutoring allows me to engage in one of the most enjoyable aspects of teaching: helping students find their own distinct narratives. I tutor-- 

 

  • College application Essays: I help students move from brainstorming topics through final polishing.  Whether students are using the Common Application prompts, the University of California topics or the additional prompts for various colleges and universities, they will craft stronger essays and introduce their strengths to the admissions committees. 

 

  • Additional application support: As we work on essays, we may puzzle through other parts of the application process, including how to ask for an effective recommendation, how to think about interview strategies, how to look for different college choices, and how to stay organized through the application process.

 

  • AP English Language and Composition exam:  I teach students how to identify and critique rhetorical strategies in text analysis and how to use these same strategies in their own writing for academic success.  I cover all aspects of the AP exam.

 

  • General Writing Support:  From syntax to polished argument, I help move students through all aspects of writing.  I create individualized plans to meet each student's needs.  

 

Individual tutoring starts at $100/hour.

 

I offer a ten-session mini course for the AP English Language and Composition exam available to small groups of 3-4 students who sign up simultaneously. Price available upon request.
