Experienced and Patient Writing, Grammar, and Essay Tutor Available for All Ages!

Methodology

I tailor each tutoring session to the current needs and ultimate goals of my student. Tutoring one-on-one provides me with the freedom to truly personalize each session. Whether we focus on grammar, vocabulary, or essay writing, I always keep the needs of my students as my top priority.

Background

I graduated cum laude from Pomona College with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I wrote many papers, completed countless exams, and graduated with a 3.9 GPA. I was also awarded the honors distinction for my senior thesis project. (In addition, I won the English award as a senior in high school.) My favorite classes at Pomona involved writing, either in essay, research report, or self-reflective form.

During my time at Pomona, I gained experience as a teacher by volunteering in a second grade classroom. My tutoring career began as a reading literacy tutor at the Pomona Public Library, where I helped illiterate teens and adults learn the fundamentals of reading and writing.

I have a passion for words, and enjoy teaching writing, grammar, and reading. I always emphasize correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as those are the foundations to successful essays and papers. I am also skilled at forming college application essays, and enjoy tutoring high school students as they navigate through the college admissions process.

I offer tutoring services for students grades 6-12 in all areas of writing and reading. Please contact me for more information and scheduling details. I look forward to hearing from you!

Vicki has been my tutor for almost two years. I am an MFA student in Visual Arts. Not only has she been extremely professional but also knowledgeable and resourceful. She has taught me ways of approaching difficult reading material, and get the concepts and main ideas right away. I highly recommend her. Vicki loves her job and she goes above and beyond to make sure you succeed in any subject that you might need help with. Thank you, Vicki, for this wonderful journey! Mariana
