About George

I have spent my entire life studying English, culminating in a master's degree in 2012 and several stints of editing work for The New York Times. However, I am driven by my desire to help people meet their personal, intellectual, and academic goals through mastery of language, and thus tutoring is my true calling. My specialty is writing, grammar, and reading comprehension; however, I have also tutored vocabulary and test preparation with great success.

I taught English for three years at Miami University of Ohio, where my approach was very student-centered. Via rigorous office hours appointments, I learned to understand and respond to a wide variety of learning styles. Additionally, part of my training for these teaching assignments involved tutoring non-native English students, focusing especially on writing skills.

I believe that to succeed, students need a clear definition of success, and I provide them with a meticulously specified plan to achieve their goals. Students know exactly where they are at every stage of the journey through written feedback, progress reports, and one-on-one conferences. I believe in sharing all this information with parents, as well as additional qualitative and quantitative assessment.

While I require 24 hours' notice for a cancellation, I am very flexible about rescheduling appointments, as well as scheduling extra appointments on short notice if requested.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for a free consultation. I am available to start immediately.
