English Teacher/Tutor, Columbia University M.A., B.A. Writing, Reading, Test Prep (SAT, ACT, GRE), all grades, top quaIity, Los Angeles area and online.

Methodology

Hi Everyone! I'm a teacher/tutor and professional writer. English is my specialty, including writing, reading, test prep, editing, letter writing, speeches, just about anything you might require. I have a B.A. in English and M.A. in Communications, both degrees from Columbia University, and I have many published articles, especially in the arts, healthcare, and politics (I'm versatile!). I'm warm and friendly, caring and patient, and very intuitive. I can tell what you need and how to get there in a way that you'll enjoy and see lots of progress. My objective is to always having you look forward to your lessons!

Background

I've been tutoring for over ten years at all levels, grade school through post-grad. I've taught individually and in classes including elementary and up through the test preps (SAT, ACT, GRE), and classes of up to 40 students for the California High School Exit Exam (for Kaplan Education). Altogether I have taught and tutored several hundred students in groups and privately.

As for results, I'm currently rated 4.9 out of 5 at Wyzant Tutoring, specializing there in the SAT and GRE Verbal and Writing.

I get along great with students of any age, am good with kids who appreciate being treated as equals which is part of my caring and respectful style.
