Literature major, PhD Candidate offering English writing lessons with 11 years of experience

Methodology

I base my class on the student's writing and helping them identify mistakes that they make repeatedly. Going through their own writing with an extra pair of eyes teaches the students the skill to edit their own work more effectively.

Background

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in International Relations and have tutored English since 2009. I have edited manuscripts for the United Nations, tutored in resume and cover letter writing, worked as an editor for an English textbook with Cambridge University Press, and have extensive experience working with high school students and college students in applying to universities and graduate schools.
