Overview

As I have done with my community college students for the past 35 years, I put my students at ease by saying that I know they have not received adequate grammar instruction, nor have they been shown the writing process stages in high school. So what they are about to acquire is no review but a step-by-step introduction to college writing. After explaining a grammar concept, using the board, I give them a practice quiz. We go over the quiz during the next class; then I send them home with a similar quiz, which will be graded and discussed during the next class. During the course, I teach 15 ways to develop a paragraph. We work through the writing stages to develop types of essays.

I have helped students with research techniques (MLA & APA styles). I help students prepare for the SAT and ACT.

I also taught Japanese students in Hokkaido for more than two years at a private conversation school.

Recently, I have been helping grade school children (ages 8 to 17) improve in writing sentences, paragraphs and short essays.

We have had three lessons so far for writing. My daughter has really enjoyed the work. Andy has prepared in advance and is very organized and thorough during the lessons. What stands out is that he really cares about making sure the student gets the best possible tutoring. This is shown by his preparation before the lessons and his assessment afterwards. He explains well and encourages questions to make sure the student is following.
I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a writing/English lit tutor.
