I can help you pass your exit exams, and also help you to complete your ten page papers in MLA, APA, or CMS style. Furthermore, I have tutored all types of students (in English). I have tutored students (helping to improve their English) in the following subjects: Psychology, Biology, American History, European History, English, English as a Second Language, Business, Anthropology, Economics and more. Furthermore, I have a great deal of experience helping ESL students improve their English--specifically their article usage (a, an, the, no article needed etc.) and their preposition use.

I was a reasonably accomplished high school athlete (four years of track and two years of football at a top tier IHSA school with an average enrollment of over 4000 students at the time of my attendance). I am friendly, enjoy helping people, and I'm very results-oriented. I majored in History at two top-notch schools as an undergraduate), and I majored in English literature in graduate school. Furthermore, I have taken graduate course work in Chaucer, Poe, Malory, Shakespeare, Hemingway, T.S.

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.
