Political Economy student at Georgetown University offering editing services and help with writing in general.

Methodology

My teaching method is casual but focused. I like to develop a rapport with my students so they feel comfortable giving me feedback and asking questions they may not otherwise ask. Crucially, I want to help students develop in ways that are familiar to them rather than try to reinvent the wheel.

Background

I am a college student who has two years of tutoring experience: I tutored privately for family friends and edited scores of essays for dozens of my peers. I have received a great deal of positive feedback regarding my editing and essay-writing abilities, and I have consistently helped students achieve A-range grades on written assignments.
