Qualifications & Experience

Hi! My name is Terry Graves. I'd be thrilled and honored to tutor you. I would strive to help you learn by making lessons interesting and fun. I will support you every step of the way. Your success is my success.

SAT and ACT Reading and English (and Science)
I will prep you so you take your test with confidence! I teach you strategies to address the verbal portions of the tests and do comprehensive reviews of grammar, punctuation and common homonyms. We will also go over charts and graphs and strategies for reading comprehension. You will feel great on test day. Please note that you will work with a separate tutor for the math and science portions. By the way, I am certified by the ACT organization.

WRITING
I will help you at any part of the writing process: from idea generation to final polishing. You will learn how to easily generate footnotes and endnotes, how to formulate hypotheses, and how to write clearly. I will be your greatest fan and cheerleader throughout. I have written for the New York Times and Scholastic.

SPANISH
So you want to learn Spanish or want extra help or practice? I can absolutely help! I am a native speaker. I have a Mexico City accent, which is understood worldwide because of television. I correctly, grammatically and at university level. I learned a third language as an adult and thus understand the process of language acquisition in myself. As we work together, I will support you, make your lessons fun, and tailor them to your needs and wishes.

If you don't hire me, then please don't make the mistake of hiring just anyone. Look for a native speaker from Bogotá, Mexico City, or Madrid who has at least attended college and has learned a second or third language as an adult. This person will speak grammatically and correctly and will understand language acquisition.
