I understand and remember what it was like for me, being a student, very clearly. There were some subjects I did not care about, some I tolerated and some I actually enjoyed. I was fortunate enough to become very good at what I enjoyed and even more so to continue my education along those lines. As a former high-school liberal arts teacher, I am well versed in analysis (be it of poetry, prose) comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, summary writing and basically all facets of reading and writing up to an entry level college student. I can help you make sense of things if we work together, and as such impart the skill to do it on your own so that you won't need a tutor anymore. If that sounds like what you need, then I might be someone to call!
I am currently a graduate student with a Bachelors of Arts in English Literature as well as a Visual artist and Musician.

American History

Mapping the history of the land of the brave and free as it progressed from discovery to present day!


I am a graduate of the University of the West Indies with a Bachelors of Arts in Literature, as well as a high school graduate with a 3.0 GPA. I have two years experience teaching high school as well as many years tutoring other students in various subject areas. I have good grades in math, general science, and general knowledge of electronics, as well as excellent grades in English. I feel quite confident that I can be of assistance while preparing for the ASVAB examination.


Freehand drawing in terms of portraiture and multi dimensional rendering of still life as well as fantasy.
Technical drawing as pertains to beginner and intermediate levels.

I studied drawing at the University of the West Indies St. Augustine campus and have been a commissioned artist all over the world since 2009. I have a very detailed portfolio and prefer mixed media, for example, pen and ink with acrylic or charcoal with water colour, or oil with sand, feathers and other particle based substances glued to canvas or sewn in.

I am also a former biology student with a keen interest in anatomy and love stippling and pointalism while using the pen and ink medium. My portfolio can be available on request or a live portrait can also be a possibility as a measure of goodwill toward the student. I can accommodate the students necessity to find their own strength and style, while teaching rudiments of shadowing, cross hatching, the intensity of line and how to achieve symmetry and dimension, etc.


The language we use everyday is not often what they call 'standard' English. This does not mean that colloquialisms are wrong, but that there is a commonality that must be reestablished for the sake of international understanding- hence the word 'standard'.


I can and will help you identify your weaknesses! We shall conquer grammar together!


Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie... And sometimes they are in the tutor we seek! I love literature, and if I can't help you love it too, I can at least make you understand why we study it and what is important to learn from it as pertains to each text!
