Need help with your English class?

Worried about papers, the SAT, the ACT, and college entrance essays?

If you are looking for assistance with your writing, grammar, vocabulary, test preparation, or simply English homework, I am the right person to contact. I received my BA in English from UCLA, and my English teaching credential and Masters in Education from Loyola Marymount University. I have worked as an English teacher and term paper reader/editor for Beverly Hills High School, and as a substitute teacher for the Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District. I am especially interested in helping high school students improve their writing skills.

I can help YOU with:

•All academic papers, including term papers, research papers, and timed writing assignments (the kind you can’t fake!)
•SAT and test preparation
•College entrance essays and submissions
•Creative assignments, including effective public speaking and performance

I am also happy to work with students in all other areas of English.

In addition, I edit documents for clients who want to make sure their sentences flow and their writing projects are the best they can be.

On a final note, I am currently writing a book entitled Writing Tips from the Bermuda Triangle, which provides guidance for students on their writing, focusing in particular on the dreaded yet foolproof five-paragraph essay.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
