About this tutor

I provide excellent tutoring services because I tutor with heart. Students gravitate towards my style bc I put them at ease and focus on the assignment at hand with utmost respect for individual needs and style also taking into account personality. I am efficient and edifying. I break things down and explain process and structure of all levels of writing.  

The most exciting feeling in the world is when I can help a student see his or her potential realized and he or she feels a sense of relief and pride in accomplishing a personal goal/finished product.

FAQs


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

The first thing is I get aquainted with him or her. I like to find out a little bit about them and will usually do an ice breaker activity such as creating an architectural bio poem.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA in Literary Studies from UT Dallas and completed some hours toward a Master's Degree in Education (with emphasis in teaching writing to college students) at TAMU.

I worked as a writing tutor in the Learning Assistance Center at Eastfield College. I proofread & edited all sorts of essays from developmental writing classes to Life Sciences and Philosophy and Psychology and Drama. Have edited college entrance essays, acceptance letters, scholarship request essays, recommendations, proposals, book reviews, etc.

Have also taught college writing including developmental and ESOL. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, depending on the level/type/length of writing, I usually charge $60 (sixty) per 2hr sessions. Payable up front. Nonnegotiable. Direct payment by Zelle into my checking account.  OR cash. Sessions are minimum 1-1 1/2 hrs. 


How did you get started teaching?

I actually taught ESL classes first through the Continuing Education department right after I graduated with an Associate in Arts and Sciences at the same community college. I was asked if I was interested and I said "yes."


What types of students have you worked with?

Mostly late teens, young adults and older.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

A few things to consider would be, of course, credentials and experience, but also look for someone who has HEART and has a common-sense approach to tutoring. Above all, look for courtesy and a good communicator. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Some of the questions to think through:

1. Have I read the assignment thoroughly?

2. Have I understood the criteria of the assignment?

3. Have I given it some effort, as in brainstorming?

4. Have I done some research, like asked parents or friends about the topic of the assignment?

5. Have I looked up all unknown words in the dictionary?

6. Have I reserved a good block of time to spend on this assignment?
