I have always been a lover of learning with a particular passion for literature and language arts. I graduated magna cum laude from UCLA in 1979 with a B.A. in English and earned English Departmental Honors, Additionally, I hold a Paralegal Certificate from the UCLA Attorney Assistant Program, and worked for many years as a legal assistant drafting, revising and editing legal documents and correspondence. I am also accredited by the California Department of Rehabilitation (DOR) as an academic tutor. I am particularly proficient with editing, grammar, proofreading and all forms of literary thematic analysis, and am fluent in both MLA and APA style formatting.
I am also the mother of three accomplished children, ages 27, 24 and 18. Over the course of the last 25 years, I have been consistently actively involved in their education, providing "in-house" tutoring in all subjects, reinforced each year by repeating the extremely challenging curricula presented at their college preparatory school.
As a tutor, I strive to challenge students academically to encourage them to achieve, while my experience as a parent makes me particularly sensitive to seeking an appropriate individual approach rather than adopting a "one size fits all" mentality.

I also have extensive experience with brainstorming, revising and editing college admissions and law school essays. I can help you craft a paper from scratch, or edit and polish your nearly-complete work.
My approach to facilitating students' learning has been to review and analyze their course material with them, discover the areas in which they are having difficulty, and then reframe the problem in such a way that it is clearer and easier to understand. I find this process to be a highly effective learning strategy by encouraging students to think critica

Very professional English tutor
Beverly is the best English teacher I have ever had a chance to work with! I am Ukrainian native and coming to Los Angeles, I found it hard to formulate my thoughts into proper English. Beverly is very professional and able to identify common cultural obstacles for immigrants. As an actress I appreciate help in writing emails and helping me to communicate in my field. I would highly recommend Beverly to everyone who seeks to improve their English writing, grammar and communication skills!Tetiana , 4 lessons with Beverly
