If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

With over 8 years of experience, I'm the perfect tutor for you if you need help with words (English, writing, essays, argument, grammar, reading) or the SAT or GRE. I scored in the 90th percentile on both of these standardized tests.

I have a Bachelor's in English, a Master's in Writing, and have worked as an associate editor/writer for over 5 years. I am currently a college writing professor at SDSU and Grossmont College and have tutored for the SAT and worked one-on-one with students in writing/reading for several years. I have also done resume writing on the side for several years if this is something you're interested in.

I would love to work with you. I am patient, good at explaining things, and flexible. Plus, I love when my students ask a lot of questions. That means they are eager to hear answers! And I try to make writing fun, although I know many people don't enjoy it! I hope to hear from you.

College Counseling

I’ve been a writing tutor and instructor for over 7 years. I have a Bachelor’s in English and a Master’s in Rhetoric and Writing, with an emphasis in Teaching. As an English professor at SDSU, I have read through entrance essays and graded them. I have also helped many students through Wyzant and other similar tutoring opportunities with their college entrance essays. I know the qualities readers look for and the techniques to strengthen the essay as a whole.
