About Upendo

I graduated from Wofford College with a BA in English Language and Literature and I also have a Masters of Health Services Administration from Armstrong State University. I love languages and I am also proficient in oral and written Swahili. I have helped students from different backgrounds to improve their writing and speaking skills in different courses such as English, History, and Government to name a few. I highly focus on understanding students' unique learning styles so that I can maximize their potential. I have also assisted students with preparing for the GRE and TOEFL. Overall, I have been tutoring native and non-native speakers of English for over 5 years and my greatest joy is hearing about the progress of my students because my goal is to lift them as I climb.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I have volunteered as a counselor for a year at a non-profit which helps high school students through the college application process. I am knowledgeable in the areas of admission essays, financial aid, and more. I also presently help students in the US and abroad to find graduate school programs.

Proofreading

I have a Bachelors in English and have extensive experience proofreading papers from a variety of academic disciplines. I also have experience proofreading applications for schools, jobs, and more. I enjoy proofreading and customize my sessions to meet the specific needs of my clients.

Public Speaking

I took a college level Public Speaking course a year ago and made an A+. I am also actively involved in presenting cultural information at different venues for example, I have presented at Spartanburg's International Festival for 3 consecutive years.

Study Skills

I have been a writing tutor for the past 4 years where I have helped college students to excel in their classes. Furthermore, I weekly volunteer as a tutor at a local afterschool program for children in elementary school. As a college senior, who is the member of a national English Honor society (for English majors with a GPA of 3.0 and above) I am eager to share various academic tips. My goal is to make learning as fun as possible for all ages in a positive and nurturing environment that fosters academic success.
