I would like to be your tutor. I have a lot of experience working with the English language. Currently, I work for a large college where I monitor teaching assistants who grade papers for English courses. Before that, I taught high school English for twenty-eight years. I have taught writing and American, Greek, English and general literature, grammar, and logic. I am also very familiar with World War II. I am very personable and get along with most people. I love working with young people. I always want them to succeed in whatever they do. I am objective, however. I can help you succeed in English classes or on college admissions tests and essays.
