I consider myself a top-tier educator. My professional experience has taken me to various environments and has helped me become more varied in the subject-matter. I can teach as well as more well-versed in different teaching methods and learning strategies. I understand the overwhelming sensation of writing a research paper, preparing for the SATs or readying oneself for an oral presentation. My ability to empathize with my students' situations along with my passion for English Language Arts make for tutoring sessions that inform, entertain, and invigorate. I have high objectives for those with whom I work, and I will put in a great deal of time and energy in order to allow for each student to experience success. With that being said, it is up to the student to complete their work in a timely and serious manner so as to permit me to do the best job I can. A determined student coupled with my patient and clear form of instruction will no doubt have you improving your knowledge of English in no time.
