About Amy

I am a freelance editor and tutor whose passion is the English language. Writer, copy editor, reader, grammar fanatic, literature student--I know it, I can do it, and I can teach it. As a lifelong learner and a voracious reader, I believe that any day where something new is not learned is a day wasted.

As an experienced writer and editor, I can teach you to write shining prose. I love the literature and look forward to any opportunity to read and teach it. I am also a private tutor for ESL students, offering help in pronunciation, writing, grammar, conversation, and reading comprehension.

My Bachelor's degree is from Harvard University in English language and literature, specializing in creative writing. My Master's degree is from University of San Francisco School of Education in Teaching English as a second language. I also have a TESOL certificate from UC Berkeley Extension. As well, I have years of experience working in publishing at the United Nations, Macweek magazine, and Stagebill magazine (a performing arts magazine).

Get in touch! I can help you master any challenge you may have and help an already talented and able student get better.

Approved subjects

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.
