With almost 10 years of tutoring experience in English, History, and Writing, I have honed the skills it takes to help students succeed in their academic goals. I have taught and trained how to teach ESL for the past 3+ years and have a lot of experience with both speaking, writing, listening, and reading skills, as well as test taking methods and strategies, particularly for the TOEFL, TOEIC, ACT and SAT tests.

Additionally, I have a strong writing background, having written professionally, and I have a very high success rate in helping students with admissions essays, personal essays, copy letters, resume/CVs, and more.

It's a joy, a pleasure, and an honor to work with bright, determined students and to help them find their voice and relay their experiences. I look forward to helping anyone in need of help!
