My student-centered pedagogy revolves around the Socratic Method, which is adaptable to meet students' remote instruction needs. While it is unethical to write students' papers, I provide feedback on the content, prose style, and grammatical effectiveness of students' own writing.

The rates are based on students, who have a basic proficiency in the English language. A higher rate may apply for someone whose language skills require more extensive consultation. The cancellation policy requires 24 hours advance notification. A failure to cancel an appointment will result in a 50 percent cancellation fee, given that another student or individual will have been denied the same time slot.
I hold an M.A. Degree in English Language & Literature from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, as well as a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English, which I pursued and obtained at the ages of 16 and 20, respectively. A triple-recipient of Alpha Gamma Sigma Honor Society's "Teacher's Excellence" awards, I am an experienced former English professor, who is also a freelance writer and business woman.
