English tutor with 15 years' experience available now for groups or individuals.

Methodology

I approach tutoring based on the need of the individual or group. Each session builds on the last and progresses toward the goal of the group or individual. I love to work with adults to help them to continue to learn.

Background

I am an English tutor with 15 years' experience tutoring adults in reading and writing, vocabulary, essay writing, and college entrance essays. My students have successfully completed intermediate and advanced reading and writing, and have gone on to transfer from community college to 4 year universities.
