English literature student at UC Berkeley with a love for reading and writing

Methodology

In any English subject, I use a demonstrator style to show various approaches to English. My favorite methods are reading aloud, outlines, grammar activities, and discussion. We will work together to achieve your academic goals based on your learning style.

Background

I have been tutoring in English since January 2020. I have taught several students in classes ranging in ESL, reading, writing, and literature, both college and high school level. All my students have passed their classes with confidence in English.
