Public policy master's student with a background teaching ESL and college-level writing skills

Methodology

My teaching model is to work with students and make them the best writer, while still maintaining their individual style. I focus on content first, as I believe that a good essay starts with a good idea. An essay with perfect grammar but no central idea won't impress your reader. I make sure my students understand what makes an essay compelling and easy to read and help them so they can replicate this essay style in the future. Once this is done, we then work on grammar and word choice.

Background

I am a master's student who has taught essay writing for 4 years, both individually and in the classroom. I worked as a writing consultant for two years, where I met with individual undergraduate and graduate students to help them with essays, reports, and theses. I spent this past year teaching EFL and living abroad, and taught a course on TOEFL and essay writing. I created a seminar on application essays, which I then taught to teachers and professors. I also gave one-on-one lessons on application essays and had students accepted to many high-level universities in the US and abroad.
