About Holly

I have had more than 8 years of experience in private tutoring and I, myself have also received tutoring lessons for several years while a student, and so am able to relate even more to current learning students. With a BA in International Relations and History from Syracuse University, I'm very accustomed to critical reading and writing and am also very well acquainted with foreign languages. I am fluent in English and Korean, and am also proficient with Mandarin Chinese and Japanese, allowing for more efficiency and comfort in communicating with students coming from various ethnic backgrounds. I specialize in English and have gained most tutoring experience in teaching grammar and speaking skills to a wide range of students from elementary to college prep levels. I have also had experience teaching Korean to both children and adults in all proficiency levels of the spoken and written language.
