I provide writing and Language Arts tutoring in person near Montclair, NJ, or via Skype/email. PayPal is required for those working virtually.
One session may be all that is needed, or a student may need support for many years in the area of writing.
I can help with development in general, working to strengthen weak areas such as critical thought, reading comprehension, literary analysis, essay organization, writing clarity, sentence level issues, and revision.
A student may simply wish to complete a task or to grow as a reader or writer, and I can help with both. Many students become frustrated with English/Language Arts as a subject, and subsequently develop blocks that can result in lower grades and performance during crucial academic periods. The sooner these blocks are removed or prevented, the better. I can help students understand the structure and reasons behind writing assessment and language arts curriculum and help interpret essay assignments. For younger students, such as those in grades 6-8, I will break the task down into manageable portions, which makes students less likely to procrastinate. I can also provide many tips for aiding in focus and productivity, especially in regard to writing.
Not every student will love reading and writing, but if English is a student’s least favorite subject, I can help make it less painful and increase levels of success. I will provide empathetic guidance through each step of the process, and reassurance that growth is possible.
