College English Professor Offering Online and In-Person Tutoring for Students, Grades 6-Graduate School

Methodology

It's important to tailor every lesson to each student's goals. A student who would like to do well on the SAT is not the same as the student who wants editing assistance for a thesis or dissertation. As a tutor, I make sure to work with my students to help them reach the goals they've set for themselves.

Background

With a Master's degree in English, I can assist with basic reading and writing skills, SAT and College-level prep, and thesis/dissertation editing. I have more than five years of in-classroom teaching experience, and my students have been successfully accepted to top-tier institutions following my classes.
