Editor in Philadelphia tutors essay writing, resume/cover letter prep, reading, and ESL

Methodology

I know how to tailor lessons to the student's interests and needs, working over time to help each student hone their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. My work is about building relationships with students of all ages to help them improve their studies and thrive in their academic, work and personal lives.

Background

As a tutor since 2016, I love working one-on-one with students in all 3 of my subject areas: literacy, ESL and writing/editing. I have a graduate degree in environmental science, focused on writing, and a professional background in community outreach and literacy. While living abroad as a Peace Corps volunteer, I developed excellent listening skills that I use to this day. I also have precise editing skills and have volunteered with local writers to help edit children's books, resumes and cover letters for countless students and writers.

Katherine is a wonderful tutor and writing consultant. I have never worked with such a dedicated individual who is committed to the success of her students.
