My daughter was very happy with the way Penny explained everything to her. I would recommend her to anyone.
Penny was very helpful in information pertaining to and preparing for a literature review and power point presentation, she is knowledgable and gives constructive feedback.
My son had a tutoring lesson with Penny on SAT writing. He said Penny was patient, knowledgeable, and provided valuable input to his essay writing.
The tutor was great. She reviewed my paper via online. I could not reach her by phone to let her know that I could not make the appointment. However, she was nice enough to review my paper online and gave good suggestions.
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 enjoyed creating art for many years, and understand that a good drawing is an essential foundation for any painting. There is drama in a good drawing. Some of my drawings have been displayed in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. I have to attribute my love of art to my parents, who were both professional artists.
I have created artworks for many years, and have sold various pieces. At one time, I was a member of the Guild of Nature Artists (an affiliate of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History). My work has been accepted and appeared in several local art shows.
Excellent study skills were necessary for my 3.36 GPA from the University of Pennsylvania and a current GPA of 3.75 (Drexel University). I am aware of the discipline and organizational skills necessary to achieve academic success.
In addition to my bachelor's degree in English and graduate coursework in Communication, I have written for a local newspaper and have published on a travel website.
