Private Tutoring with Experienced College English Instructor

Organizational & Study Skills, Reading & Comprehension, Writing

Is your child struggling with reading and/or writing assignments?  Is he or she starting to dread assignments that require them to read or write? Is the reading struggle starting to impact preparing for other classes? Does your son or daughter need some support in reading or writing in English?

I offer private as well as small group tutoring in reading and writing strategies, and study and organization skills. I have worked as a community college English instructor since 1996. I know the struggles students face, and work excellently with students in choosing and practicing strategies to improve comprehension, interpretation, analysis, and writing essays for school in any subject. I work with the students' books and assignments, so that the work we do together benefits them directly and immediately.

I can come to you, or we can do the tutoring at my home in Alameda. Prices range from $60-75 depending on whether tutoring sessions are with one student or up to three. Spaces are still available for certain weeknights and there are some weekend openings, as well

Students need strategies, but they also need a lot of support to start to like reading and writing. I look forward to helping your child gain confidence and  success!
