I believe English
is a broad subject, but as an English major at the University of Houston, I think it can be mastered by any student. English literature
as well as writing
are practically at the core of today's culture and society. I'm extremely passionate about this subject, and my goal as a tutor is to help other students develop the English and writing skills they need in order to succeed!
I tutor within a vast range of concepts within the subject, and can oblige to any type of assistance the student needs. I have often helped past students proof-read essays and develop a thesis, comprehend many types of literature from different eras (Shakespeare through modern literature), and even in creative writing (poetry/short fiction).
I generally tutor in English and literature, but I also strongly focus on writing. I can assist you in proof-reading
college or AP level essays. I also provide help on writing college application
essays as well other varying types of student essays.
As Lewis Carroll once said, "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there." I believe that every student is different. The way I tutor is based on his/hers own needs and learning style. I am also extremely responsive to questions either the parent or student has for me.
My tutoring hours are flexible and completely based on the parents and students. I can work around work and school schedules and negotiate set days or times for sessions. I am currently a full-time student at the University of Houston, but I am pretty flexible when it comes to time. If you wish to cancel a session, I do require it is within 24-hours, but I will offer a make-up class if you choose to do so. The first session I offer is often discounted as it is primarily a way for me to get to know the student as well as get an idea of their learning style and needs. I do this so I can provide the best quality of tutoring I can.
Because of the available study areas, I often hold my tutoring sessions on campus at the University of Houston library, but I can also meet the parent and/or student elsewhere if it is more convenient. I live in the Cypress area, but I am willing to drive any distance that meets the parent's or student's needs best. I also offer online tutoring to students if distance is a challenge, or if reliable transportation is not available.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you succeed in your studies!
24 hours notice required
My hourly rate is not set in stone. It can be different for each student, depending on expenses for gas that is used for the distance traveled. I also offer discounts for the first session.
