I will provide a personalized and caring service to help a student with his or her individual needs. My tutoring is needs-focused, and I have experience with various methods of teaching to help each student get his or her desired outcome. In addition, my qualifications and prior experiences will lend a critical and experiencial eye to the writing process within the education system, as I have experience teaching in both k-12 and university. Finally, I have taught students in various locations, including three separate countries. My experience with students of diverse cultural, learning, and educational backgrounds provides me a better understanding of students unique needs and strenghts.

I enjoy the work that I do, because it makes a difference in students' lives. I have taught college preparation essays to several students, and have helped them get into the school of their dreams. My students have been accepted into schools including Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Amherst, and Middlebury. I not only try to teach students practicality, but I strive to bring out passion in my students. I encourage them to love writing, to love learning, to love curiosity and knowledge.

Frequently asked questions

I like to have a preparatory session with the student, where we discuss goals, learning preferences, background knowledge, and methods to determine the best process in teaching each individual and unique student. 

I have extensive training in English language, especially in writing. I have a master's degree in writing, as well as a bachelor's degree in english literature, with a focus on writing. I have held various positions over the years, teaching students English as a second language (ESL) as well as essay writing, and college preparation. 

Depending on the specific requirements of the student, as well as the difficulty of the subject matter, and the time required outside of class to edit/ interact with the students' work, prices will vary. On average, I charge between 20-40 an hour. 

I have been teaching since I was in university. I have taught students in various countries, with various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, at various ages with differing English speaking and writing levels. I have also taught university students in the United States. 

K-12, and university students. I've taught students in the U.S., South Korea, and Hong Kong.
