About Margalo

My joy in helping others succeed goes back 20+ years. My bachelor's degree is in English and Secondary Education, and I hold master's degrees in English and Public Health. I have taught and tutored high school students, college students, and adults. I love sharing knowledge on topics that excite me, but more than that I love to see students get excited about questioning, learning, and achieving their goals. I understand that people have various styles of learning, and I do my utmost to tailor lessons to individuals' needs.

My professional experience comes not only from teaching in academic environments, but also from my experiences in business and volunteer work. As a freelance writer and editor for many years, I am also accustomed to gently guiding others through the process of crafting, revising, and polishing various kinds of written documents from college and graduate school admission essays to newsletters and business proposals. In the interest of improving writers' knowledge and confidence, I always explain the reasons behind my suggested edits.

For students' convenience, tutoring sessions can be held at the student's home with a parent present, or in a public space, and I do request at least four hours' notice if an appointment needs to be rescheduled or relocated.

I look forward to meeting you!

Approved subjects

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.

Writing

I am a professional writer, editor, proofreader, and teacher, and have had my own freelance business for 20+ years. I have taught, tutored, and designed/led writing workshops for high school students, college students, and adults. My specialties include nonfiction, academic, professional, and business writing guidance.
