I've tutored elementary-aged kids in reading and middle schoolers in reading, vocabulary, grammar and all types of homework. I pay attention and can/will shift methods if the current approach is not working. I care about kids learning and "getting it."

For older students and adults, I offer writing and proofreading help. I can help get ideas from brain to...

I'm a tutor and proofreader with years of experience. I am patient, responsible and professional, and I work well with kids. I've tutored elementary-aged kids in reading and middle schoolers in reading, vocabulary, grammar and all types of homework. I pay attention and can/will shift methods if the current approach is not working. I care about kids learning and "getting it."

For older students and adults, I offer writing and proofreading help. I can help get ideas from brain to paper/computer and organize them into concise, readable pieces (essays, etc.).
