By working hands on with my clients in both grammar, syntax, and diction, markable improvement occurs in just a few sessions. Further, while I market myself as an essay tutor because that’s my particular skill set, I’m also a reliable teacher in other subjects (particularly math up to precalculus, American and European history, some science, and I speak Spanish).
I’ve always been passionate about teaching and tutoring because I believe that academia is fun, and only becomes tedious when there isn’t a proper foundation. My goal is to provide that foundation.
I am afraid I don’t have the time to do it as often as would like!!
Generally the first session I try to do diagnostic and figure out what the student needs in later sessions. After that, I do targeted work in what I think each student specifically needs or requests.
I have three years of classroom experience teaching debate. Because of that, I’m particularly fond of teaching argumentative essay writing but am a great editor as well.
I began as a summer debate coach at the Pegasus School and quickly fell in love with helping students grow. I decided to start tutoring while I lived in New York (I'm a current student in Manhattan, but am home for the summer) and aim to continue.
I’ve worked primarily with middle and high schoolers, but have taught reading to children as young as three!
Whether or not they have classroom experience is a big plus, especially for English tutoring. As someone who has taught and graded, I understand what students need to do not just to become a better writer overall, but specifically for grade improvement. For AP/ACT/SAT tutoring, recency of the testing is huge: the test has changed rapidly over the last few years, and having someone you can be confident is up to date on the exam (because they took it themselves) is certainly paramount.
