Did you know that four out of five students are not proficient writers? The new National Assessment of Educational Progress in writing test given in 2012 showed that only 27% of the 8th and 12th graders that were given the test scored at or above a proficient level. Also, writing is the only subject area in which many teachers consistently rank their students as “fair” or “poor.” Yet, writing is a critical skill for everything from writing college admission essays to work one once school is over.

Patient, Experienced, High School Latin Teacher

Humanities Teacher: 4th Grade through Adult
My teacher handed me the Iliad when I was fourteen, and I hated it. Eight years and two full tours of the Great Books later, I had learned to like the Western Canon but not how to understand or study it. I still felt like a person at a feast with a stuffy nose. Then I got hired to write Literature class plans and suddenly there was no more "try." What happened next was stranger than fiction, but that's a story I'll save for later. For now, can you relate to my experience? Maybe they kee... Read more

Patient French teacher and tutor with extensive experience
Bonjour! French is a beautiful language that I enjoy sharing with others. I value tutoring because so much can be accomplished by working with students one on one.

Having grown up in a French-speaking home, I developed basic communication skills from an early age. Later, I minored in French as an undergraduate... Read more
