English PhD Student Offering Online Tutoring in Writing, SAT Prep, and More

Methodology

I usually work with K-12 and college students though I could work with students of any age. In the classroom, my lessons consisted of traditional classroom discussions and group work. As a tutor, I aim to be flexible and student-centered: I focus on what each student needs help with and adjust according to his or her needs.

Background

I am originally from New York City (I got my BA in History at Brooklyn College) and am currently a PhD student in English at Boston University. I have experience with SAT Prep and as a writing tutor and instructor. I could work with students of all ages.
