Ms Rhiannon was on time and very courteous. She was very receptive to the kids' needs and formulated a plan to work with them. I am really excited to work with her.

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.
Reading is a critical component of both my professional vocation and my education. I am an avid reader with a keen insight for tone and literary device. As an English major at George Mason University, my focus of study was in non fiction writing and ethnography. The discipline required extensive reading, which I very much enjoyed. I also find it very rewarding share my passion for reading with others.
I’ve been teaching SAT verbal prep for over 6 years.
