About Margo

I have taught public speaking and writing at the college level. I tutored one student in the past--as part of the Harvard Honors program. She received magna cum laude from both readers, so the outcome was very successful. Otherwise, I'm new to tutoring, relatively-speaking.

I regularly work one-on-one with students, however, in my role as a local sports and features reporter for a community newspaper. I interview youngsters about their teams and special projects, and I'm comfortable working with the young students, as well.
