Furthermore, the community education curriculum has

Usha is a great tutor. She helps me improve my writing skills. I had two sessions with her and both of those sessions were very productive. She is very patient with me and she knows my weaknesses. She knows the subject matter very well.
I had a short series of lessons with prof. Usha. We concentrated mostly on speaking English.
Prof. Usha is patient, passionate tutor who gives different exercises, brings up interesting topics to talk about. She is also a nice person to talk about anything. It was a pleasure to learn a lot of new from her.
I would like to recommend her as a tutor to everybody.
She taught me how to evaluate each sentence properly and how to write my essay for the SAT's. She is also punctual.
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.
I have an MA in English Education, PhD units in Literature
as well as certification from the State of NJ.
