Hello. This blog is intended for anyone (including students and parents) who is considering tutoring help in reading, writing, and verbal test prep, or for college admissions. I call this website Tutoring with Distinction because that is how I approach my work. To be effective, tutoring must be individualized: material must be presented in a way that fits the student's learning level and style--and motivates him/her to take on the next challenges. Learning is making distinctions, and I help students to make distinctions of all kinds by expanding their ability to use language.
My work is of two types:
- coursework in English and writing, including boosting reading comprehension and writing across curricula, for students of all learning levels; and
- test prep and college admissions. Please note that I tutor for reading and writing sections of the SAT, GRE, and GMAT; for the ACT, I tutor for the essay writing, the English test, the reading test, and the science test. I will refer you to an excellent, qualified math tutor.
- Once you are in, and receive financial aid packages, I will help you to negotiate the best offer.
- I also provide tutoring help in writing essays for admissions to graduate and professional programs.
