Carefully selected, highly-credentialed English tutors in Houston, TX
"I completed my degree in Secondary Education with teaching fields in History and English. I enjoy studying pretty much anything in history, but my main focus has been American, Texas and British histories. I love both reading and writing in the English/Language Arts area, and I like to foster at least an interest, if not a passion, in my students for both. I like to write for my own pleasure, and I have years of editing experience in the classroom as a teacher and outside the classroom for individuals who need help and on book manuscripts for publication." ...

" You will most likely choose me for assistance with English, Social Studies, History, Politics, Economics, and Spanish, as I am best versed in those topics. However, I love learning and teaching and will be a good match if you are looking for a patient, knowledgeable, easy going yet structured and wise tutor. I am also available for test prep assistance and I love teaching the writing portion of the new SAT! My teaching philosophy is that everyone is able to learn something, it is just a matter of finding the method that works best for you. Learning can sometimes feel like fitting a square peg through a round hole...it just won't work! However, ...

"As a graduate student I specialized in world history as well as the Civil War era including the antebellum and reconstruction periods. I began to tutor fellow students as an undergraduate and it was then that I realized I have a passion for helping others learn a subject that may not always come so easily to them. As a tutor I help my students not just to answer the question but I strive to help them and give them the confidence to understand the question so that the answer comes from their own understanding and comprehension of the subject. Many students dislike history but I have found that once they understand the subject matter history ...

"I also do test prep for ACT and AP tests, and helping students getting ready to apply to and start college. After studying abroad in 2011 and taking 4 years of French, I love to work with students also studying the language. I get my tutoring strategies and methods from my own personal experience and seeing what worked for other students when I went through those same classes. I feel that the key to helping a student learn a subject is tostart small, set goals, and find a method of learning that works best for them."

"I've tutored test prep, English, literature, writing, math, and social sciences. My undergraduate degree is from Wellesley College and my masters is from Harvard, so while I've spent seven years in Boston's frigid clime, I love being back in my hometown. I have "itchy feet," according to my dad--I love to travel, and have been to more than 20 countries. I lived in South Africa for two years on a research fellowship, and I studied Arabic in Egypt. I learned to surf in Costa Rica and ate a lot of pasta in Italy. In my free time I am a voracious reader, as well as a soccer player, a godparent to a delightful one-year-old who lives in Atlanta, and a total ...

" While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about English, Literature, and History. In my experience helping struggling students prepare for Standardized Tests, we always seem to have the most fun (with remarkable advancements) prepping for the Critical Reading and Writing portions of the exams. I am a firm proponent of education, believing it to be absolutely necessary for an improved quality of life, and I try to impart this appreciation to all of my students. In my spare time, I enjoy reading that which enriches my life, yoga, running, and the odd game of ice hockey.." ...

I specialize in helping students understand the mechanics of grammar, organizing a well developed essay, and broadening their vocabulary for formal writing.
