UCLA college graduate offering English, Literature, Writing, and related lesson support and study techniques in Maryland.

Methodology

My teaching method is directly responsive to the students' needs. If a group of students all need help understanding the mechanics of essay writing, I will explain the most important mechanics, give examples, have the students complete a trial assignment, then review it with the students. If students master the main mechanics I would move onto ways to improve the quality of writing, or a new lesson based on what the students want to learn.

Background

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from UCLA, where I also studied Creative Writing. I have tutored students in elementary school, high school, and college before. I am currently a full-time teacher at a preschool. You can rely on me for everything from full lessons to test prep to proofreading.
