Tampa EnglishTutoring student gets teaching certificate

Posted on 18th November 2010 in English Tutor Success Stories

One of the great joys of this tutoring is seeing students reach goals.

One of my students set a goal to get her Florida teaching certificate and become a high school language arts teacher.


(Proof that some people are better at body art than punctuation.)

She is on her way toward achieving that goal.

Tonight I helped her create a professional looking resume and cover letter. OK, my wife did most of the work. I did some revisions and the Frau formatted the resume so that it shines.

I wish my student the very best of luck in finding a permanent teaching position.

College Admission Essay Writing Help

Posted on 18th November 2010 in Essay Writing & Help

I have been helping a lot of students write college admission essays over the last several weeks.

With state schools becoming increasingly competitive, any high school senior should do as much as he or she can to ensure a standout college application essay.

Most people hate to write. Recently I helped the editor of a high school newspaper write her college application essays. Even though she was used to writing with a deadline, she had a severe case of writer’s block when it came to her own college admission essays.

The advice that I gave her was to resist the urge to revise as she wrote.

Making writing and revision separate steps (as much as possible), she was able to write several excellent drafts.

She also benefited from suggestions from an experienced writer of admission essays.

I have helped students write essays that were part of successful applications to University of Florida, Emory University, Florida State University honors program, and many other top schools.
