Dear Prospective Student,

I am a highly recommended tutor here to serve you! In the first session, find yourself improving without even realizing it.

Do you know the proven exercises that work? (I show you in lesson two... you'll love it). By the third lesson, you will have individualized instruction tailored to specific learning needs (this will make your scores so much higher).

Here are the areas I work with: Standardized Test Preparation, Reading Comprehension, English skills as an ESL learner, Reading and Writing K-12, College-level Writing Intensive courses.

Here are the specifics: To improve reading comprehension, I teach you active reading techniques. To improve English skills in ESL learners, I teach grammar and pinpoint your areas that can improve. For reading and writing in K-12, I use curriculum appropriate to each grade level accompanied by personal instruction. For college-level Writing Intensive courses, I use exercises to help you think critically about the text and make connections in your writing.

Most people rate me as very helpful because I take a creative approach to helping you improve. I hope you make an appointment with me soon so you can find out how you can improve as well!
