Do you need help in writing essays for your common application or literature course? Look no further, for I am here! As a comparative literature major, I understand how difficult it can be to express oneself well. Please allow me to be of assistance. Try me out--Wyzant allows the "Good Fit Guarantee" which means if our first lesson is not to your satisfaction, I will not take your money.

A little about me: I hold a BA in Comparative Literature with a concentration in Spanish Literature at Cornell University. I can answer a variety of questions and proofread essays.

I also received my IB diploma in 2015 and have taken 8 AP exams and 14 IB exams. I was accepted into 8 top universities and can provide advice for high school students who are at a loss about the college application process.

I also received a 4 and a 5 in AP lang and AP lit, respectively, so I am generally familiar with standardized testing for most English-related subjects.

As such superior editor

I enjoyed working through my essay with Wendy she was very helpful in getting me to be more direct. A majority of the essay needed some re-work which she definitely helped to add suggestions. Lastly she also showed me how to grammatically use MLA correctly. It was a pleasure meeting would definitely be up for another session.

Thorough and Creative, Wendy is an amazing tutor!

I recommend Wendy wholeheartedly; she has been an incredible piano tutor for my thirteen year-old daughter. She is an intuitive teacher who will go that extra mile to make sure that each subject is fully mastered. She has gone above and beyond to do outside research to find appropriate supplemental teaching materials for upcoming lessons. Best of all, my daughter loves Wendy's patient and friendly teaching style -- she is a gem!!
