College Writing prof and Fulbright Scholar living in Tucson, AZ wants to help students (and adults) wishing to develop and improve their skills. Can work in your home or online anywhere in the world.

Methodology

The most important part of teaching is to get to know your student(s), their goals and objectives as well as their strengths and weaknesses. This is best achieved by diagnostic lessons as well as personal interview. Once we develop a mutual and achievable goal, the results will follow. I will work with students and adults from ages 12 and up.

Background

I have worked all over the world both as a tutor and a classroom college and university instructor. I have also tutored online and have assisted a student in China to successfully pass the GRE and as a result get accepted in a prestigious American university.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $25/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $200

Details

I have a busy schedule so any cancellations in less than 24 hours will be charged for unless there is a medical emergency.
