I am an educator. I hold a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in education, and I have been an English teacher for 29 years. Someone told me, years ago, that the average burn-out time for teachers was three years. I survived those years because I love what I do--leading people to a discovery of the amazing thing that is the English language. Of course, I could not have gotten to 29 years without a few other things: patience, a nurturing personality, respect for my students, knowledge, and skill. If I am your tutor, you can expect all those things from me.
I love the English language. I can tell you what an Oxford comma is(and when and why you should use it), and I can help you understand the symbolism of the color white in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness (Trust me, it's not purity). I have read thousands of essays and research papers, so I can help you make yours better (What do English teachers really want?). I can help you build your vocabulary without lists upon lists of words (though I love a good dictionary). Tell me what you need; I can help you with it.
