In over ten years' experience tutoring writing students at a large online university, I have discovered persuasive, compelling writing requires attention to grammar, punctuation, and organization. I can help you proofread and improve your assignment. Imagine you are a teacher or an audience member.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
