Writing tutor with 6 years of experience and a passion for English language Arts teaching from Providence.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is to guide you in showing me what you know so I can work with your foundation to build you a ladder to your goal. I do not teach for memorization and from a predetermined starting point. I believe connecting knew knowledge to what you already have can get you to where you need to go quickly and with less stress.

Background

I have been professionally tutoring for 6 years and have been trained as a university employee to do so. I have tutored countless students from a variety of subject areas with the discipline of writing. Many students succeeded in obtaining their degrees and surpass the academic goals they set for themselves. I also have studied to teach English language and have a vast knowledge of American Literature.
