English Tutor with Four Years of Experience Working in Rochester, New York

Methodology

My teaching method is tailored to each individual and uses a lot of hands-on examples as well as personal experiences to illustrate concepts. I try to get to know each student as a person so I can understand how he or she learns.

Background

I am a summa cum laude English Writing graduate with four years of experience tutoring in all facets of research writing, rhetoric, literature, grammar, and document citation. I am passionate about helping others learn skills and do well within what they originally struggled.
