When I was teaching English as a second language in Jing Zhou, China, I had many amazing experiences, but probably my best was helping a senior get into his dream architecture graduate program in the USA. He had achieved every metric of success and all the qualifications he needed to get into the program at the University of Washington, but he struggled greatly with conversational and written English, and feared he might fail the mandatory interview and written essay portion. After working together for two semesters, he went from barely being able to speak basic English, to being able to hold a conversation with me on a variety of topics.
While in China, I taught and tutored elementary through college-aged students. In college, I was a work-study tutor for students who needed help with their long-form papers and compositions in a variety of subjects. I was also a K-8 substitute teacher for about a year and a half. Currently, I work part-time writing online content for a financial education provider.
If you need help writing a paper, learning SAT vocabulary and test-taking techniques, learning English as a second language, or simply learning how to be a better student, I'd love to hear from you.

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.
