A Brooklyn-based artist with 5 years of tutoring experience offering classes in a variety of subjects

Methodology

I tutor any and all ages, although so far most of my experience has been with college students in 100-300 level classes. I have mostly tutored essay writing, in subjects varying from literature to history to sociology as well as many more subjects in the humanities. I have also tutored college application essay-writing with high shool students and English class with middle school students.

Background

I am a recent college graduate, with 5 years of tutoring experience, including middle school students, high school students, college students, and adults. I have helped many students feel more confident in their writing abilities and motivated to keep improving. I have tutored upwards of 100 students and have built a strong report with many of them.
