SAT Writing Prep with experienced pro
I'm a former high school English and Drama teacher, have been a professor of graduate Education, and have been tutoring online for over ten years. As a test prep tutor, my specialty is SAT Writing. In our sessions, I will go over basic tips/strategies for the SAT writing section, as well as review a practice SAT writing test excerpt where we can discuss the passage content how to answer the multiple choice questions in real time!
About Laura R.

Hi! I've been a teacher all of my adult life--from coaching acting at summer camps, teaching theater, film and speech to high school students, English as a Second Language to students from middle school through adult professionals, research paper writing, education, and even yoga and martial arts! I love helping people discover new worlds, create new opportunities, and gain confidence through learning just about anything. The goal of a good teacher is to provide a space where the student has the tools to become successful, but still has a safe space to make mistakes and grow. Aside from teaching, I've been a published writer, columnist, and book author, have owned my own independent film company, and most recently managed a yoga studio in Los Angeles, California. I love anything creative and believe the arts are an amazing tool for learning. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your interests and learning goals--let's learn some stuff!
