I am a tutor of writing, English, and history. My students learn to craft clear and persuasive essays, to bring their voice, ideas, and experience into their writing, and to use evidence to highlight and support their ideas. I also help students doing research papers. If you are gearing up for the SAT or ACT, I am outstanding as a tutor of the English and Writing portions of those exams.
My background includes five years as a university professor and four years as a tutor in the LA area. In addition to my doctorate degree (NYU), my achievements include two published academic articles on United States culture and history. I just received my teaching credential in English (UCLA). I received the Presidential Volunteer Service Award (2011, 2012, 2013) for my volunteer work with homeless youth.
In my tutoring, I am engaged, patient, and prepared to try different approaches, depending on the writing experience and strengths of the student. I am positive and affirm students' efforts. I insist that students use the tutoring session to work hard and practice good habits such as staying focused and asking questions. Let our work begin!
