English Educator offering tutoring with 7 years experience from 6th through 12th grade.


I approach each student with understanding their goals for a class or session, and craft the experience to their needs.

For example, if a student is working on an essay and is struggling with identifying relevant quotes in a source, we will identify what they are trying to convey in their writing, and seek quotes that support their argument.


I am an educator with seven year's experience teaching in the classroom. I have taught and am certified in the following subjects:

English - 5th-12th grade
Social Studies - 5th-12th grade
Mathematics - 5th-9th grade

In addition, I have also taught ESL online for four years, to students ages 3-13.

I specialize in Academic writing, ESL, resumes/cover letters, and research writing.


Rate for online lessons : $30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $25
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $25


Hourly rates reflect preparation time for larger assistance on writing assistance (e.g, source assistance, proofing prior to session). This value add saves face-to-face time for constructive active work together.
