For more than 30 years, I have followed my calling, tutoring and teaching test prep, speed-reading, study skills, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. I love my work because it enables me to connect with unique individuals and determine their best paths to learning whatever they need to.

The major tests I work on include the SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, GRE, CBEST, CSET-MSAT, and some SAT subject tests. I also work with clients on Verbal (Reading and Writing) sections of many other tests.

My tutoring programs for speed-reading, study and learning skills, grammar, writing, and vocabulary include applying the skills, strategies, and techniques to your own reading, assignments, and projects.

My programs include work on:

  • Anxiety reduction for high-stakes, high-stress tests and other difficult situations
  • Assessing your learning styles and how to best apply them
  • Nutritional preparation to improve your focus

For 20 years, I was an assistant professor of English at Skyline College where I taught reading, learning skills, grammar, basic writing, and vocabulary.

My workshops for Foothill-De Anza Community Education have included SAT, ACT, PSAT, Speed-reading, Grammar, and Vocabulary.
