Tiffany
1st lesson offered free !

English major in California offering tutoring in essay writing and technique to all ages.

My teaching method in essay writing is to really have the student establish a sense of "full presence" with their own writing. What I mean by "full presence" is that the student has a set goal for the essay and is using a selective style and word choice to build a written product that truly reflects his or her interest in the literature being analyzed or stance on a given topic.

NYU Graduate teaches English: Academic and Creative Writing, Literature, and Reading Comprehension

I tutor English essay writing, literature, and reading comprehension. I operate through a disciplined framing of questions in conversation, such that the student is guided not towards the “answer”—but towards what it is they already know that will help them find the answer.

English Tutor/Instructor with an M.A. in English Degree, Extensive Experience in Teaching Students Essay Structure, Proofreading, and Citation, alongside Literary Criticism/Comprehension/Research (Loc

Initially, I like to get to know my students so that I can tailor their needs to the approach I take. Feedback from students is crucial; getting to know what they are comfortable with and what they may feel self-conscious about in their academic skills allows me to focus on building on weaknesses and encouraging strengths.

National Merit Scholar with 6 years experience teaches literature, writing, and test prep in Irving and online

I believe that literature and writing are first and foremost supposed to be fun! Even with less exciting subjects like grammar and test prep, I still try to bring a down to earth attitude and a sense of humor. I'm particularly familiar with homeschooling and classical education, but I'm adaptable and will adjust to the needs of your student.

There is no one method. It depends on the age and maturity of the students. It also depends on their skill level and motivation. While it is sometimes helpful to make it as fun and engaging as possible, that would be inappropriate at other times, such as when teaching essay writing.

It depends on the situation. If a student is a beginner or is struggling, of course I would scaffold and make sure the student has all of information necessary not only to move forward, but to move upward! The more advanced a student is the faster we can move and the deeper we can to into a subject, but if there is one thing i have - a HUGE abundance of it's PATIENCE.

I am a college student, and I am willing to give tutoring lessons up through senior year of high school.
