I am dedicated to helping my students attain their goals, whatever they may be, by improving their ability to read and write effective English. I am experienced in tutoring ESL English and SAT prep- reading and writing. I have tutored English Language Arts individually and in groups of 2-6 at the 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 11th and 12th grade levels as well as math at the elementary school level. I have worked for numerous companies including Rising Star Academy, Mobile Minds, Ace Tutoring, Academia Tutoring, Academic Advantage and Phoenix Scholars.
My subjects include TOEFL prep, GED prep, American, European and World History as well as Geography and US Government, and Pre-Algebra. I enjoy what I do and try to make the learning process fun.
