A child or young adult struggling with reading, speaking and/or writing the English language can improve with a little gentle guidance, encouragement and understanding. As an English tutor, I can adapt lessons to fit your student's particular needs in order to help them understand English concepts, comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, and the structure, organization and focus of essay writing, to increase their knowledge while gaining confidence in their skills and abilities. As a writer and long time educator, I am passionate about helping students succeed.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I am a subject matter expert in resume writing and cover letters. I am also an expert in interviewing skills. I have taught a course: Blueprint for Workplace Success for El Camino College, Los Angeles Community College District as well to grant trainees for the South Bay Workforce Investment Board for the past five years.

College Counseling

The college wants to learn about you, so you need to have a good, interesting and if possible compelling "story" about yourself.

With the personal statement, they can then determine if you will be a good "fit" to attend their school. As well, it is a test to determine how well you can get your ideas across, and how well you write.

I just finished helping a graduate student in Manhattan Beach with her personal essay to apply for graduate school in psychology.

Together, we applied for 13 different schools and ultimately she was accepted at three of them.

She made her choice, and will be starting graduate school in late August.

SAT Writing

The important thing to remember about the SAT essay is that it is designed to measure a student's writing skills, not their specific knowledge of a topic or subject, however to prepare for this portion of the exam, it is best to have relevant examples to support the essay thesis.
