About Valerie

I have been giving lessons since my junior year of high school (6 years).
I have taught 13-15 students in total.
My students have improved significantly on their SAT / ACT scores, writings skills, and GPAs. A couple of my students have credited my tutoring skills for contributing to their acceptances to other Ivy Leagues. Here is a list of some of my accomplishments related to my English skills:

I scored a 800 in the SAT writing section and a 760 on the reading section.
I have edited college application essays for students in the past.
I write blog posts for Penn's Anti-Genocide Club.
I have written keynote speeches, branding proposals, and media pitches for my various marketing internships.
I am a blogger for the Huffington Post.

I'm a senior at the University of Pennsylvania studying Linguistics and American Sign Language. I have tutored throughout high school as well as college (in American Sign Language and English). I now offer my services to middle and high school students in any area related to English. I generally allow my students to dictate the tutoring sessions according to their own learning styles. However, I do provide materials and set up lesson plans to give them steady direction (these lesson plans vary and depend entirely on the specific student, subject, and preferred learning style). All of my students have given me positive feedback for my patience, meticulousness, commitment, and unwavering success in helping them achieve their goals.
