Question:

What are the fundamental learning stages that occur when children are 3 years old?

Margaret M.
Answer:

At three years of age, children experience significant linguistic and emotional development. This is an exciting time for children as they begin to explore their fine motor skills, their growing physical stamina, and rapidly developing oral speech. Children may be fearful of the new changes but most are confident and excited about their new abilities. Having years of experience supporting students at this age, I am confident that I can nurture your child!

Question:

Is it more valuable to apply to many colleges or universities or to only apply to a few?

Answer:

A college admissions strategy is as unique as the high schooler who applies, and thus must be carefully and strategically planned out. After reviewing your documents and speaking with your teachers, I will create a customized 2 year plan -- based on your goals. In addition, I can assist you with transferring to a different school if you are already enrolled in school. I have successfully guided hundreds of students to their top-choice college/university.

Question:

What is a metaphor and where can we see evidence of such in a text of classic literature? What is the difference between a metaphor and a simile?

Answer:

A metaphor is a literary tool that appears in literature to say one thing is another completely different thing. A simile compares one thing with something else entirely different to describe and uses "x is like y" or "x as y." To know the difference between a metaphor and a simile, use this test: does the phrase contain 2 unlike things? (Yes, linked with is/was--> metaphor) (Yes, linked with like/as --> simile). (No --> Neither.) Some famous literature (i.e. books of writing) contain metaphors and/or similes to describe everyday words or complex ideas by comparing them to something else. For example, “Memories are bullets. Some whiz by and only spook you. Others tear you open and leave you in pieces.” (Kill the Dead, Richard Kadrey) This comparison of memories to bullets gives the reader a visual image and allow the author to say something more about how he views memories. Do you think that memories can cause damage? In addition, many modern pop singers also use metaphor -- ever listened to the lyrics in Katy Perry's Fireworks? ('Cause, baby, you're a firework / Come on, show 'em what you’re worth— Katy Perry, "Firework") Perry tells us that baby can soar in the air and explode in sparks of light. In this way, Perry uses a metaphor to describe what she feels about baby. Do you want to learn how to make your own metaphors and similes and spice up your writing? Contact me!
