I enjoy tutoring and always encourage my students to develop their skills to help improve themselves. Writing is an art of expression.
Many individuals write as a hobby; many others write professionally.
However, to avoid making grammatical errors, it is necessary to learn how to apply the basic principles of English grammar appropriately, and have a clear understanding of punctuation marks, spelling, phrasing, sentence structure to become more confident and effective communicators.
Your writing is a reflection of you, so how you present your copy is extremely important. Although you’ve worked hard to develop and present your ideas, it is always recommended that you present a polished text, with no typographical or grammatical errors. However, this is not always the case. Like it or not, the way your paper looks can affect the way others judge it, regardless of who it was sent to, or the purpose (i.e. job, promotion). When your copy is read by someone else, not only are your choice of words and style of expression being assessed by the reader, but also your spelling, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure.
Content is important, but you don’t want careless errors distracting your reader from what you have to say. Whether it is a simple statement, letter or thesis, every single word, just as every error, is noticed and taken into account, determining your level of writing skills and grammar comprehension. Therefore, it is crucial to have a copyeditor or proofreader correct your errors, so that you can present error-free, well-written copy worth paying attention, to help you make a good impression.

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.
Grammar is a very essential part of the English language. It is comprised of several areas: spelling, punctuation, word selection, phrasing, and sentence structure. Each of these areas have a set of grammatical rules that must be applied appropriately, to help improve the way we speak and write.
In order to know the difference between good grammar and bad grammar, I will teach you how to select and use the correct words, punctuation, and phrasing in your speech or text, so that you become more aware of how to formulate proper sentence structure. With practice, you will then become a more confident, effective, and productive communicator.
