Amazing English Tutor in Writing Essays, Analysis of Texts and Test Prep

Methodology

I tailor lessons to the strengths and needs of each student, asking questions that help the student to reflect on how to best formulate their ideas and gain insight, also providing knowledge when needed, making the content fun and stimulating for that given student and always engaging, preferring dialogues to lectures.

Background

With a BA in English, an MA in Humanities and an MSW, I have 15+ years of experience teaching and tutoring in the humanities and the social sciences with great success helping students to improve their writing/critical analysis/test scores. I was instrumental in one student completing an MA in Counseling at Columbia University, for example, providing feedback that greatly helped her to improve her writing.
