I am an educator with decades of teaching experience ranging from 4th grade through university teaching. I have demonstrated a best practice and research based model for learning that is effective in improving academic achievement at any level. I am interested in tutoring all ages. In the tutoring session, I use a planning backward approach, first identifying the learning target to be accomplished during the session. The second step, we discuss and assess what has already been mastered, and the third step is the teaching and learning process, the tutoring, to achieve the learning target set at the beginning of the session. We will end the session with checking if we hit the set learning target. This model works at every level, from a 3rd grader building reading skills or improving computation skills to a graduate student planning to write a review of the literature for a dissertation. I tutor children of all ages, high school students, undergraduate, and graduate students. My preferred subjects are essay writing, research writing, editing, composition writing, reading skill development, literature studies, history essay writing, application essays, and test prep skill development.
