Reviews

She is a patient tutor and knowledgeable of distance education.

I like the way she gives you an outline to follow to write your prompt and discussions. She is very encouraging and understands the adult learner and some of the obstacles students go through when returning back into school. She gives a very quick turnaround and provides feedback of on my work.

Knowledgable.

Prof. C., explained me the business concepts and she also made some changes with grammar. She is a good peer and tutor. She also helped me with proofreading

Meena, 3 lessons with Iris

Knowledgeable and supportive tutor

Iris is a great teacher with a lot of experience. It was not easy for me to find a tutor that met my needs. I'm an adult who transitioned from corporate to consulting and was in need of a writing tutor. I needed someone who could help with the flow of my writing, grammar, as well as someone who can teach me how to assess a research report versus report the findings. Iris everything I need to help me in my new job. She is a great listener and so much knowledge to share. I can rely on Iris to respond quickly, especially if I need a quick turnaround. I feel more confident in my deliverables now that I support from Iris.
