Philadelphia-based tutor offers online lessons in writing (essays, research papers, business writing, etc.) and ESL (conversation and pronunciation)

Methodology

I know how to tailor lessons to the student's interests and needs, working over time to help each student hone their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. My work is about building relationships with students of all ages to help them improve their studies and thrive in their academic, work and personal lives.

Background

As a tutor since 2016, I love working one-on-one with students in both ESL and writing. I have a graduate degree in environmental science, focused on writing, and a professional background in community outreach and literacy. While living abroad as a Peace Corps volunteer, I developed excellent listening skills that I use to this day. I tutor ESL learners from around the world to help them improve their verbal skills. I also teach students writing, whether they are just beginning or simply not feeling confident. I have precise editing skills and have volunteered with local writers to help edit children's books, resumes/cover letters, and personal essays for countless writing students.
