I tutor high school students, and my specialty is helping students with college application essays. I have successfully guided students writing essays for Yale, Boston College, and the University of Chicago. I also help students prepare for the reading and writing sections of the ACT and SAT. I taught high school English for several years, and also spent ten years as a book publisher. I am also an experienced editor available immediately to edit your manuscript, whether fiction or non-fiction, long or short. I can do both copy editing and general editing for content and effectiveness. I can also write copy. In addition, I can scan and restore your old photographs. In my years at Arcadia Publishing (arcadiapublishing.com--I worked on most of the books published in the Midwest from 2002 through 2011), I scanned and corrected tens of thousands of photographs and edited as many words of text. I have also digitized thousands of photographs in my family's archives. I am in the process of getting a website up and running, as I am just starting my business.
I'm happy to be back in the classroom after a busy summer! I hope everyone's school year is off to a great start! I provide tutoring for students in elementary school (K-5th grade) and middle school (6-8th grade) in math, science, reading, and language arts. Tutoring can improve grades, be used as enrichment, or provide an avenue to get ahead. Tutoring can also help prepare for harder or higher level classes and reinforce study skills. Elementary and middle school is the perfect time for students to start learning how to become organized in their classes and homework, a practice that can be enhanced through tutoring. Most importantly, tutoring can build confidence for students to be successful in the classroom.
