He answered all of my questions and explained them in detail. He critiqued my essay in a way where he spotted all of my mistakes and offered great solutions. He is very patient and professional and experienced. He was even available at the last minute. Great tutor. I would recommend him to anyone!
I would meet with the student, maybe through FaceTime or in a public coffee shop (Starbuck's, Barnes and Noble) and discuss goals and expectations. It would be helpful to have shared some of the student's writing beforeghand over email. Sometimes working entirely over email and phone works well if the travel distance is a factor.
I feceived a Ph.D. in English from Purdue University in 1980, with a specialization in American Studies.
There is some flexibility. $45/hour is standard, $75 if I need to travel a significant distance.
I started as a teaching assistant at Purdue University in 1975. Basically, I started teaching freshmen writing with only a little mdentoring and no experience.
While teaching full-time, I have worked with every kind of student imaginable (including part-time teaching in graduate school, I taught for 42 years).
