Who makes the best tutor?
One who loves to inspire students. One who loves to help build confidence. One who has the knowledge, experience and desire to teach fluency.
I have 10 plus years mentoring students helping them achieve language skills. Selected to attend the University of California Berkeley Graduate Communications Program, I am an expert in linguistics and writing. I also have an undergraduate degree from FSU but this is only a fraction of my credentials. I have worked as a teacher of Business English for eight years for two major South Florida Hospitals. For over five years I have worked one on one teaching English as a second language. I am TEFL certified. Mostly as a tutor I believe in making the experience effective but also entertaining.

I plan each session with precision
Each class is productive but also fun.
My experience as an English Business Tutor enables me to work at a professional level.
Children K-12 learn quickly through my process
Vast experience in online teaching
I have guided high school students through proper interviewing techniques
I pride myself on the number of students from other countries who have been enrolled in universities.

I guarantee a positive learning experience whether you are in fifth grade or in your final year of graduate school. I am new to WYZANT but am an accomplished tutor. I am happy to supply you with happy students contact information so that you may check for yourselves.

Cathy Meyer Proscia XXXXXXXXXXXXXX@XXXXX.XXX Engish/Writing Tutor Bio Is there a roadmap to become an effective academic coach/tutor? Perhaps, but my career as an educator, writer, business owner, and C-Suite executive helps high school and university students gain reading and writing skills. Armed with little self-confidence and undergraduate social science and English degree from Florida State University, I started as a low-level copy-writer. One job leads to another and finally, I was the Creative Director of an Advertising Agency. Years later, I started a Communications Agency working with such clients as Twentieth Century Fox, Kraft General Foods, Circle K and Gatorade. My success was due to my creative writing and ability to relate to clients. I was fortunate to land the Cleveland Clinic account and loved the healthcare environment. One job led to another and my finale was a member of a C-Suite in charge of marketing and communication in a 1500 bed hospital. As a hobby, I started to mentor high school teachers in English. I taught writing, public speaking and grammar. Quickly, I learned my passion was not in business but teaching. I took all the writing courses I could find and applied to the authorship graduate program at UC Berkeley. I was honored and shocked when I received the acceptance letter. For two rigorous years, I studied grammar, composition, social media, public relations, feature writing, etc. I learned that before this Master's program, I was not a writer. After the course, I am a writer. I needed schooling in tutoring and coaching. I took and passed the Harvard Certification for Rhetoric and persuasive writing and speech. I became a certified teacher and life coach. I spent one year learning how to teach students with English as a second language. Training and education aside, I was able to take my experience and ability to relate to high school and university students and put it to the test. I have helped over 75 students improved their writing
