Writing and Grammar Tutor with 8 Years Experience All skill/grade levels. BA in English from Univ. of Montevallo, Juris Doctor from Washington and Lee, Certified SAT Essay Grader

About the lesson

I am an experienced one-on-one writing and test prep tutor. I specialize in essay writing, persuasive rhetoric, and ACT English, Science, and Reading prep.

I worked for 3 years as a Biology, Math, Philosophy, and Writing tutor at the University of Montevallo, and have worked with clients of all skill levels, including those with intellectual impairments and for those differently abled.

I am a certified SAT essay grader, and have worked with students prepping for a variety of standardized tests for the past 5 years.

Typically, my sessions are an hour long, with the first session acting as a diagnostic. Once the areas of need are determined, I work with the client to establish a sustainable routine of conversations and reinforcement exercise to ensure the information is retained.

I work primarily on weekends, but can be flexible across any weeknight, and I offer flexible rates to suit your needs.
