I have extensive experience in developing academic writing skills, including research and MLA formatting. I have help students understand and analyze literature as it relates to American and British History, including Beowulf, The Scarlet Letter, Huckleberry Finn, Lord of the Flies, The Canterbury Tales, A Raisin in the Sun, The Grapes of Wrath, and many others. I take the mystery out of writing great papers. I can also help students with grammar, editing, and proofreading. I have homeschool and college level experience as well.

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.
