College Professor and Tutor giving English, History, and Writing lessons to those in Jacksonville, Florida

Methodology

I teach History and English at the college level. I have an M.A. in History and a B.A. in English. In addition, I have 8 years of experience tutoring students in Writing, English as a Second Language, and reading. My goal as a tutor is to help students become self sufficient learners who can succeed in any learning situation they find themselves in. I am willing to teach/tutor anybody between the primary school level all the way to college level.

Background

I have been tutoring and teaching at a local college in Jacksonville, Florida for over 8 years. I structure my individual tutoring around identifying what students need. Usually, my tutoring sessions last between 30 minutes to one hour. I try to give students exercises to reinforce material gone over during the lesson/tutoring session. In addition, for ESOL learners, I also work with pronunciation during lessons.

Rate for online lessons : $35/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $180
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $350

Details

I give the first lesson, a 30 minute preview lesson, for free.
