I have focused my tutoring practice on ADHD students for the past 3 years, and it is currently about 60% of my regular students. I myself am an academically successful ADHD student and this is a very passionate and personal area for me. I know what it is like to struggle, and I know all the series of paths that students need to take to succeed.

...I have taught the math part to both the SAT and ACT prep courses through Silvan Learning for the past 3 years. I have helped my students raise their scores significantly with this program. Given one of the test prep manuals I can help you raise your scores too.

...I will teach students to use context clues to figure out unfamiliar words and also use Wordly Wise and Daily Academic Vocabulary to help students increase their vocabulary. I have taught grammar. I do provide the students with a lot of examples as well as integrating learning games into my tutoring as well.

...Both my master's degree and the current MFA program I will complete in 2012 focused on literature and writing. The MFA, a culminating degree for Creative Writing in the United States, has included a large component of essay and thesis work. To date, I have completed two theses involving literature.
