UC Berkeley graduate with bachelor's in English Literature teaching in Walnut Creek.

Methodology

I center my classes around the coursework the student is currently tasked with. I have a passion for the English language and pride myself on being able to pass on the knowledge I've gained through my education. Tutoring should be an enjoyable experience that also results in better grades and appreciation for the subject matter.

Background

I have a degree from the top ranked English Literature program in the United States (University of California Berkeley) and have experience in tutoring for both test prep and essay writing. Furthermore, I write for a living and read extensively.
