    I liked working with Peggy because she was very sweet. She asked really good questions about my writing that brought up my essays strengths. One of the things that I really liked about her, was how she gave constructive criticism about my writing flaws and made suggestions that helped me perfect my essay writing in a friendly manner that was supportive. Overall, I would recommend working with Peggy.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The first meeting/phone call, either with the student or with parents, is to discuss goals—grade improvement, college admissions, etc. We discuss the kind of services their looking for, and create a regular meeting schedule or plan for 2-3 test visits to see if my teaching works for the student. If the student and I work well together and progress, we can move forward on discussing a regular schedule.
