Tutor profile: Clare W.
What is your main focus when helping students with writing?
Writing is a bit unique because it requires attention to both the "big picture" and the nitty-gritty details. As such, I focus on helping students create compelling, logical, well structured outlines that communicate their ideas succinctly while also focusing on grammar and mechanics to unsure that minor mistakes do not muddle the overall meaning of their writing.
What is your main focus while tutoring students on English?
Studying grammar and mechanics can feel incredibly overwhelming. As such, breaking rules and exception down into small, bite-sized pieces helps the students retain individual pieces of information that work together to create excellent English skills.
What is your main focus when working with student for ACT English prep?
While helping students prepare for the English section of the ACT, I aim to first calm their nerves. An anxious mind cannot retain new information, and anxiety can cause unnecessary mistakes. My main focus is helping students manage test anxiety and build confidence so that they are able to retain the information they learn about mechanics, grammar, and punctuation and so that when test day comes, they can approach the exam with confidence.
