Graduate student offering English, reading, literature, grammar, and essay lessons in Champaign

Methodology

I am happy to help levels elementary school and up. I want to help with essay structure, grammar, reading and analysis of literature. I am very patient and like to take my time so that the student can understand.

Background

I am a current grad student at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I have a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a Master's degree in English from Oxford Brookes University. I have taken numerous courses on grammar, literature, and reading, and have received high grades for most of them. I hope to help students who are struggling on any of these areas.
