If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

If you are looking for a friendly, skilled, and critical English tutor, please consider giving me a call. I can whip any essay into shape, and get anybody ready for the Writing/Reading sections of the SAT.

As an editor at a large college newspaper (The McGill Tribune), I worked in-depth with beginning journalists to improve their thinking and writing. I sincerely enjoyed and drew much energy from this work. I have also worked for professional publications, and had work appear in the Philadelphia Inquirer. I have a B.A. in Philosophy and Western Religions (minor in English Literature) from McGill University, one of Canada's finest schools.

I come at a reasonable price because I am building tutoring experience. I look forward to working with you!
