I am a certified and experienced English teacher who excels at working with students of all types of abilities! I also specialize in motivating students to perform at their ability level and have a knack for explaining grammatical concepts in a way that makes sense to any and every student. I have been tutoring English (grammar, writing, literature, reading) since I was a teenager and have had many clients tell me I'm the only tutor who ever made a difference in their understanding. Bottom Line: I am patient, sensitive, compassionate, and extremely competent.
I have been helping international students increase their English proficiency for more than six years. I have worked directly with students from Russia, Korea, China, Japan, Germany, and Honduras and have helped them improve written and spoken English. I also help them understand idioms and cultural norms, as these also make a big difference in someone's English language skills sounding natural and polished.

I can improve the writing of any and every student! I have taught middle school and high school English for more than ten years and have been tutoring since I was sixteen. My first job was tutoring college students who were struggling with writing essays and research papers. I have also worked with very young students in the elementary grades. I love teaching writing and can intuitively develop an approach tailored to the individual student. Patient and encouraging, I am highly committed to my students and am very confident in my ability to bring about immediate improvement.
