I make essay writing easy and your reading assignments meaningful to you

Methodology

I have over 20 years experience education. I have experience teaching those with and without learning differences organizational, study, research, time management, goal setting, planning and motivational skills incorporating technology. I have found it very useful to use technology in a way that helps students find a renewed interest in subjects.

I have created a formula that helps students write thorough and successful essays.

I have applied Master's Degree in Education to help students increase motivation and accelerate productivity. The breadth of my experience with students has fine-tuned my responsive nature to help them. Through interaction with my students, I quickly assess their perspectives and adjust the teaching style for the curriculum accordingly.

My passion for teaching is evident and, I believe, infectious. My primary goal is to help students find the enthusiasm, confidence, use tools and foster the skills that will assist them in their success.

Background

I have been working as an Academic Coach, tutor and certified college counselor for full time for the past 10 years. I work with students as young as 10 years to 23 years olds. My students' grades, skills and confidence increase dramatically.

I have helped numerous students find the right major and school and have helped them write compelling application essays. My students have been accepted into UCLA, UCB, UCLA, UC Davis, USC, University of Michigan, UT Austin, Penn, Cornell, Northeastern, Tulane, Boston University, Belmont, The American University of Paris, University of Oregon, CU-Boulder, Oregon State, SDSU, Chapman, St. Edward's, St. Mary's, University of San Diego, and Cal Poly SLO among others.
