Hello.

My name is Daniel, and I am currently a student at California State University, Northridge, where I am an English major. I also hope to minor in Political Science.

I have an AA in English from my previous college, Antelope Valley College, and graduated top of my class in the English Dept., receiving the Subject Area Award for English.

I have been tutoring freelance for a few semesters now, and thus have some experience; I try and work around my clients’ schedule and needs, rather than impose a strict schedule of my own, and tailor my approach to whatever my clients feel most comfortable with and in whatever way they feel is most beneficial. This can range from my explaining a piece of literature for a class and going into detail on essay writing techniques to a more conversational approach, and anything in between. Above all, I always try to be very flexible, and am always very receptive.

On that note, I am also very flexible with regards to payment. I am extremely passionate about all things regarding English studies, language, and especially literature, and so, for me, English tutoring is something I enjoy a great deal and have an extraordinary amount of energy for--as such, payment for me is secondary to your succeeding and (hopefully) enjoying the subject material as well as understanding it. I do not require a large salary, and try to ask my clients what they feel is a fair level of pay and, at that, a level that doesn’t hurt them financially (as I understand that money can be tight.) Generally, whatever works for you works for me.

As for my particular specialties with regard to English, my Subject Area Award came, among other things, on the strength of my excelling in English literature classes, my essay writing ability, my ability in public speaking, and a keen understanding of many authors, ideas, forms, and concepts within literature and language as a whole. In addition, my expertise in regards to Shakespeare in particular was cited by my professors at my awards ceremony. I do indeed have a deep love for Shakespeare, and own a set of his complete works (two in fact, one a collected leather-bound copy with gold-tipped pages and the other a 4-volume, scholarly edition) as well as a great many of his works on DVD. Of all the many authors I admire, Shakespeare is indeed my favorite, and would be more than happy to loan some of these study materials to you if, in fact, Shakespeare is an author whom you are studying or reading at any level. I have a great amount of experience writing lengthy essays on, discussing, and helping clients with Shakespeare.

I have also tutored a wide variety of clients from many different levels of education and from a diverse selection of academic backgrounds--everyone from fellow college students, high school students, elementary school students, and, indeed, those who have learned English as a second language.

I have had a considerable amount of experience as well with working with those who are Spanish speakers, and, indeed, I greatly enjoy working with those trying to learn English as a second language, again, at any level. I have had some success in this regard; I had a student who came from Peru, met with her twice a week, and helped her to pass English 099 and English 101 at a college level.

Finally, I try and leave the time and place of meeting up to my clients. In addition, I have done tutoring via the Internet and Skype, so if you prefer, I can certainly tutor that way if you so wish. Some clients have chosen to do this for a final review session the night before a test or essay.

All in all, I am open to any and all forms of tutoring you may require or request, and to that end, thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you.

Sincerely,

--Daniel
