Editor, college writing teacher, tutor in literature, ELA, ELD, San Francisco, 10 years

Methodology

My teaching method is student-centered and based on Common Core Standards, favors project-based initiatives, interdisciplinarity, and balances creative exploration with a solid grounding in conventional academic skills and subject matter. My passion is literacy, from working with emergent readers and writers, language learners, to students approaching new concepts in academic and cultural contexts.

Background

I started as a peer tutor at U.C. Berkeley, where I earned my B.A. in English, with minors in Philosophy and Anthropology. As a grad student at Duke University in English, I taught college writing and research, and Shakespeare for beginners. I am a "writing coach" for university professors and graduate students. I volunteered as an AVID tutor in SF public schools, where I helped revise so many college personal essays (I still know the Cal State and U.C. prompts by heart). I have been training to teach K-6 Multiple subjects in an MAT program, and tutoring after-school programs. I have a lot of experience with "distance learning," and in fact, was very lucky to give a real lesson -- on COVID -- to a small group of actual 2nd- and 4th-graders in a real Zoom classroom.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $125
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

For adult academic and professional clients, my rates range from $30-$75/hr; I use a professional free-lance editors association as the basis for negotiating the contract. I do "ghostwrite" or independently revise for high-level academics who either are non-native speakers of English, or who are native speakers of English, but are so expert in their field that they need a translator for a popular or non-specialist audience. In consultation with a graduate student's committee chair, I also provide time-sensitive revisions of reports or theses that the student is submitting for a master's degree or credential. The rate here is based on the level of improvement the client seeks and the deadline. For children up to Grade 12, the rate is negotiated based on the nature of the lessons, the role of other adults (teachers, parents/guardians), and the student's prior proficiencies and current goals. My goal in offering a first lesson without charge is to allow me to evaluate the client's need, explain what I can do and what I believe we can achieve, and to give the client a sample of the work and set their expectations for future sessions.
