Writing consultant with 3 years' experience seeking to provide English tutoring services to students.

Methodology

My tutoring approach consists of a lot of leading questions, explaining grammatical concepts, and providing constructive feedback to a variety of writing pieces. I am extremely patient and I am willing to take all of the time needed to help students make their writing the best possible.

Background

I am a Political Science student at the University of Houston, and I am minoring in education. I'd love to be able to help students improve their writing and provide English tutoring services for high school students and beyond.
