« I have known Alice for several years because we had worked together at the same adult language school for more than 5 years, and during all this time, I have known her both personally and professionally. I can honestly say that she is not only trustworthy but reliable as well. Professionally, she knows her subject matter well and prepares her lessons in a very organized manner. Her style of teaching is student-centered and she has good rapport with her students who are multi-culturally diverse and come from various educational backgrounds. Her students respect her and look up to her. I would definitely recommend her to other Superprof members because she belongs to the "Superprof" category herself, being highly knowledgeable in her field and continues to strive to bring out the best among her peers and her students. »

Alice, a long-practiced tutor for gifted students, brings a brilliant mind, great wit, and easy warmth to helping her students create not merely technically correct but insightful and vivid writing. Students will quickly learn the nuances of critical and original thinking and apply their gifts in writing that ranges from creative to essay to documentary topics, and beyond.

Along the way their understanding of language's expressive power (and not only English) will deepen profoundly. Alice's students routinely go on to matriculate at the nation's very top schools, where a powerful writing style is a key component of a successful university career.
