About the lesson
I'm an Independent contractor and I currently work with one college sophomore who is majoring is Sports Management. This student suffers from ADHD and has a severe learning disability but I tutor him in his college general education classes such as College Algebra, American and World Literature, Psychology, Intro to Business, Economics, History of the US, etc. but I specialize in English literature and essay writing.
One technique I emphasize in my lessons is the importance of repetition, not redundancy. When writing a formal essay, the writer/student should recognize that the main point will be better received if it is thoroughly brought together in your essay with each of your points. Repeating a thought or theme to clarify or narrow a message is a useful tactic whereas redundancy emphasizes the excessive and unnecessary use of a thought or idea that has been overly squeezed.

I'm a recent graduate student of York College with a bachelor's degree in English. I've been giving tutoring lessons periodically for the last 5 years but began tutoring privately 2 years ago for a student with severe learning deficiencies. In my line of experience, I've worked with students in small groups as well as individual sessions and taught a wide range of ages from pre-K to college level. Each and every one of my students achieved success whether it pertained to the classroom, an assignment, or outside the classroom.
I also have 6 years of practical experience mentoring students with executive functions and social skills.
As someone who’s known Kyle for quite some time I can assure you that he is one of the most reliable, dedicated, and hardworking characters I’ve come across. He goes above and beyond and truly takes the initiative to go that extra step. The patience he has and the time he puts into working with others is astronomical, I promise Kyle is very much an amazing, and trustworthy teacher.
