English Tutor (no, not Henry the Eighth) with degrees in English and Journalism can help students with any subject that requires reading in L.A./SF Valley.

Methodology

I teach people of all ages: from 3 to adult. My method of instruction is Socratic, that is, present my students with a word, phrase, sentence, paragraph, image, etc., and ask questions that I am prepared to answer. In my lessons I use humor whenever possible.

Background

I've been giving lessons for 17 years, and taught many students in class and at home. I do not believe students achieve things thanks to me. They do all the work. I only pave the way for them to succeed.
