Published Author with 8 years of English Tutoring Experience Available for Lessons or Essay Help

Methodology

Everyone is able to write a successful essay, and I am here to prove that to everyone who questions their ability to do so. I am able to give guidance to students ranging from elementary level to university level. As far as essays, I begin with a formulaic approach to their papers - by the time they have finished their introduction, the rest of their essay is already mapped out. Brainstorming is a crucial step in writing an essay, and I guide my students through that process as thoroughly as possible.

Background

I am a published author of both poetry and prose, but my forte is in writing essays. Throughout my time in University, I tutored 7 students in their essay writing, varying in subjects (Design, English Literature, Biological Sciences, etc). My students always return at least B level writing.

Before Rhea's assistance, my essays were always written the night before and turned in without proofreading. That poor performance was reflected in my work.

She came in and helped me figure out better ways to brainstorm. I'd never made an outline before, but she taught me how, and then how to expand on it. After helping me with my grammar and spelling, (and teaching me better ways to proofread!) everything I wrote sounded like it came from a different person.

A smarter person. Thank you.
