Kind, responsible, and well-trained, I possess a PhD in English and over 10 years of educational experience. I have helped individuals and small groups ranging from the 6th grade to college level courses. Although my specialization is essay writing and language arts, I have successfully tutored students in arithmetic and algebra. I am also familiar with test-taking strategies for the SAT.

One of my proudest achievements was when I worked with an LAUSD charter after-school program. When I arrived, some of the students were struggling with the practice exit examinations, but by the time I left, they had exceeded the requirements for the state exams.

For me, the typical tutoring relationship begins with an assessment of the student's abilities and needs. From there, sessions start with a topic introduction and warm-up exercise. This is then followed by guided and independent work, and ends with a review of the highlights of the session. Of course, this approach can be shortened and applied to a specific assignment or a short-term project.

In my years of tutoring and teaching, I am delighted to say that I have guided many individuals to becoming better, happier students. I believe that the ability to do well is in everyone if that ability is nurtured by commitment and skill. If my training and experience seem like a fit for you, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
