Knowledgeable and efficient tutor.

She meticulously went through my assignment to help me create a very clear paper. She also rebooted my paper into APA format and helped me redo my reference page.

Stefanie, 1 lesson with Larisa

It is obvious that Larisa has a complete undertanding of Word

She was very patient with me because I know very little about Word. I am sure she did her best to make what I needed to work for me. I would certainly recommend her to help those who need to become excellent at wordl
