Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Scott B.

9 Literature lessons

David is a patient and knowledgeable tutor for AP literature and the SAT 2 Subject test in Literature. My daughter figured out 10 days before her AP literature exam that there were several areas she either had not covered in class or that she was weak in from doing practice tests. We were fortunate to find David, a licensed and certified AP literature teacher, and he worked with our daughter every other day before her exam, providing in depth teaching and hw support for this exam.
Stuart L.

4 Literature lessons

Her understanding of literature is deeply rooted in the classics of English literature (Chaucer, Sir Gawain, Shakespeare for starts) as well as in religious literature and how the Bible is at the basis of literature in the English language. And then there is her spiritual side which was quite unexpected for I thought that someone who is so academically qualified would lack the heart of a poet or is it the soul of a Saint.
Joe S.

17 Literature lessons

She is patient and flexible, and she has thorough knowledge of both the content of the stories and poems covered in the class, but also provides valuable insights that a typical AP Spanish Literature teacher may not have. This was evident by my son's ability to participate significantly more during his classes, and if it were not for Alison, he would be struggling in the course.
