Bachelor of English in Granite City, Illinois looking to assist in aiding the future

Methodology

My idea is to follow in the way of a number of my teachers did when going over a topic, whether it be Shakespeare play or Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, and discuss it as a conversation so they aren't pressured and they are more likely to open up to the teacher or on paper. As for regular writing, I like to look over and when I notice it, I will help explain why something is wrong.

Background

I have not been giving lessons as I had nobody to teach. I cannot give results due to not having students to test and I have no practical experience in the subject.

I enjoyed English and Math (High school level) and I would be willing to teach Math (up to Pre-Cal, Senior high school) as well.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $21/h

Details

As it pertains to the level of the student, I don't see a problem as I am expecting mainly middle to high school students (6-12 grade) where we will be discussing subjects and not just learning to read to how or write.

Cancellation policy: I currently do not have one, but this is likely to change and I will let anybody I am tutoring know when/if it does.
