I am a creative writer and have been since childhood. Creative writing is my most loved writing style. The only thing that surpasses it is mentoring other creative writers. It is my life's work.

I meet my clients where they are - that means that a client's skill level is inconsequential. Whatever level of skill you are at is the correct level, and I will meet you there. Where we go from there is your choice. If you have humble expectations, we'll start with small steps and readily mastered goals.

1st lesson offered free !

Postdoctoral PhD with over 10 years experience teaching for full classrooms, individuals, and online.

I use complementary methods of teaching rather than a "one-style fits all approach". Frequently I use the standard lecture style of teaching to begin a lesson before venturing into discussion with students or the student. Because each individual learns and processes knowledge differently, I tailor all individual lessons to the student's preferred method of learning.

Be accompanied by the best teachers for your literacy lessons

Literacy is very important for any student at any grade or level. The better a student is able to read, the better they are going to do in their other classes. Reading comprehension is essential, and this is something English as a foreign language students need to grasp quickly, if they are going to succeed inside an English based school system. Completely grasping a foreign language can be tricky, but using the help of private teachers can ease the burden. The majority of these English as a Foreign Language EFL private teachers not only speak English, but also the primary language of the student as well. This way, the student can feel more comfortable with the literacy private teachers and they are able to relate in a way that is not always possible inside of the classroom. With the private teachers, specific, individual private lessons are created for each student. This way, the student knows what to focus on and what is going to offer them the best opportunity of success. From the literacy private lessons to the reading private lessons, after working in one on one sessions, the private teacher can create specific lessons for the student to better improve their understanding of the English language.
