Mira Mesa, San Diego - English Literature and Language Tutoring K-12 Essays

Methodology

I am a home schooled student who has recently moved on to college, looking to get a degree in English. I believe in the Socratic method, and in the potential of every student to be fantastic. My teaching method is mostly inventive, helping the student to enjoy study as much as I do.

Background

I started tutoring in January of this year at a tutoring center, working with up to five students at a time. I helped write essays, analyze text, and comprehend grammar structure. I've taught over 40 separate and unique students, each with their own goals and ideas.
