For more than 30 years, I have tutored and taught test prep, speed-reading, study skills, writing, grammar, and vocabulary.
With 30+ years experience as a former assistant professor of English at Skyline College, a tutor, and a workshop leader at Gonzaga, De Anza College, and Stanford, I work with people from middle school age to adult. I have Skype tutored students outside the U.S. for several years.
In addition to comprehensive test prep, I provide individualized tutoring programs for specific sections of standardized tests, and combined test prep (e.g., SAT/ACT, PSAT/SAT.)
My programs include assessing clients’ strongest intelligences, and providing strategies and assignments tailored to reach their goals. Work is done using my exclusive guides, official test prep and the best available supplementary materials.
Additional programs include speed-reading, study skills, academic tutoring, and writing, grammar, and vocabulary improvement. I have managed my own independent educational consultancy, Prince Learning, tutoring individuals and small groups on most standardized tests, speed-reading and study skills, and writing and grammar improvement since 1985.
