Welcome

My name is Margaret DeRosia and I run Open Minds Tutoring. I am an experienced, caring educator and former university professor of Literature, Film and Media Studies.  For 15 years I have been teaching and tutoring people in both Canada and the United States.

Open Minds specializes in tutoring all aspects of the English language and literature, whatever your age, level or need.  I will work with you to:

  • communicate better in English at business, university, or school
  • write your best essays
  • understand difficult school or university subjects
  • compose strong entrance applications for universities
  • raise your scores in the reading, writing, and verbal comprehension sections for tests like the ACT, GRE, PSAT/NWSQT, SSAT, SAT, TOEFL, and TOEIC
  • edit an undergraduate, masters, or doctoral thesis; edit a post-doctoral scholarly manuscript for publication
  • help you make excellent college, grad school, and career choices
  • improve your public speaking, presentation, and lecturing skills

Open Minds is committed to your success. Together we will overcome problems that have held you back.  I can teach you or your child to communicate better and achieve more — show the world your intelligence and abilities at their best!

Every month Open Minds honours a writer whose creative work has been valuable to the world in some essential way. This month spotlights Harper Lee.
