If you viewed my profile you probably realize that I have not used WyzAnt to tutor but one student, Mrs. R. In fact, Mrs. R. and I ended up having a great student/tutor relationship and I helped her in college English and writing. Mrs. R. was an accountant who furthered her degree, and the English classes were required, but not necessarily vital to her field. I helped her get A's in all of the English and writing classes at Chapman University through my tutoring.

I know Mrs. R. would be happy to write me a stellar review.
