...Tutoring is the only job where saying goodbye is a fulfilling experience. My specialties are in ESL, writing, reading, and preparation for the TOEFL. I have also helped learners with the ESL Compass, and the English, reading, and writing sections for the Compass, SAT, and ACT.

As I begin to wind down my law practice of more than 30 years, I have decided to pursue other activities. About 1 year ago, I became certified as a volunteer tutor in Lake County, Illinois. Since then, I have worked as a math tutor in a classroom and as a reading tutor for an adult who suffered a stroke.

...I revel in the language, and I delight in the many ways we have of putting it together to convey meaning. I teach writing not as a chore, but as a expression of self. I hold both a BA and an MA in English and have taught the subject for many years.

...I have had the honor of teaching several students with ADHD in private tutoring sessions. The reason I say "honor" is because these children are generally quite bright and very teachable IF they are taught in a way that is relevant and not boring to them. Generally, a child or adult with ADHD will learn more and learn quicker in a one-on-one setting.
