Freelance English Tudor with Bachelors degree in English and 3 years experience helping students

Methodology

My teaching method includes showing students the proper way to write and speak, use good grammar and proper punctuation. I use written and verbal communication. I will provide examples of good grammar and strong writing in both a creative and academic setting, as the situation calls for it.

Background

I have a Bachelors Degree in English from Ashford University and an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from College of the Sequoias. I was a student advisor in the writing center for two and a half years at COS and six months at Ashford.

Marisa is a fantastic tutor and has really helped me improve on my writing skills over the years. She is highly knowledgeable, kind, and patient. I trust her completely and value her feedback and guidance. I've submit many papers with confidence because of Marisa's help and would highly recommend her.

Jazzy

Marisa has a great personality, a strong knowledge and deep understanding of English. Whenever I need I help with a paper or just any work I always go to her. She's great with communicating areas I need improving and doing great in.
