To begin with the technical details: I have a Ph. D. in American Literature and over twenty years of experience as a professor and instructor of writing, literature, creative writing, critical theory and thinking on the college level. I have worked with a diverse mix of students—of varied backgrounds, abilities, ambitions, and difficulties—in this country and the Middle East. Second, I am passionately devoted to teaching: every student I meet engages my interest, and that engagement enables me to draw from my students—through our conversations and my reading of their work—a precise understanding of their singular struggles and how best to add...

I place an emphasis on helping students learn and understand their subject matter more intuitively. Whether it through be correcting mistakes, learning a new concept, or thinking about how to best tackle a problem, I give students room to think and apply new knowledge while being a guiding hand. I also tailor my teaching style to the needs of the individual. Each student has different learning preferences (i.e. theoretical vs. application-based, visuals vs. words), and I am happy to accommodate what the student prefers to help them learn best. I enjoy being able to empower students to solve their problems. When I was younger, I had numerous ...

Your english tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.
English tutors charge $25 to $80 per hour on average, depending on their experience, education level, location, and availability. Expect to pay $15 to $40 per hour when hiring a high school aged English tutor and $30 to $100 per hour for a certified English teacher with a degree.
English tutors help students with reading, writing, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, phonics, and speaking skills. English tutors assist students by reviewing and critiquing essays, increasing their reading comprehension, or improving their writing skills. English tutors also work with students in English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.
ESL (English as a Second Language) tutors help students who speak different primary languages learn formal English speaking, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. ESL teachers overcome language barriers to help students communicate clearly in English.

Start by searching our list of private ESL, reading, and writing tutors. Then follow these tips:

  • Contact and consult with at least three tutors before hiring.
  • Read their reviews, ask for references, and verify their education.
  • Discuss where the lessons will take place, the cost, and cancellation policies.
  • Ask what payment methods are accepted and when payment is due.
  • Ask about discounts for booking a package of lessons.
  • Hire the tutor on a trail basis to make sure they are a good fit.
