I have four years experience teaching English Composition at the college level. I have also spent three years working as an individual and small-group tutor, and I have a Master's Degree in English Literature. Most of my experience is working with young adults and older returning students, but I also occasionally work with high school students who are looking to improve their grades in AP (or advanced track) English, or students who are preparing to take the SAT, ACT, or GRE.
Katie is the best tutor I've ever had. She has helped me in excelling in every English class I have taken, which is about 4 at this point. Before she began tutoring me I couldn't write a paper to save my life and now I am able to write a sixteen page research paper. She's incredibly bright and able to communicate in a way that makes me want to improve my writing and not give up. If you need a tutor or someone to look over your work. Contact Katie! I can't recommend her enough.
The first thing I do with a new student is assess what that student needs, from a single session to help with a particular project to weekly skill-based lessons. I often ask my students to provide a sample of their writing before we meet so that I can get a sense of where they might be struggling. This helps to save time and get started on better footing.
I have fours years experience teaching college level writing, and three years experience working as a writing tutor for individuals or small groups. I also have a Master's Degree in English Literature.
I prefer to work with students online, using a mix of google docs, skype, and e-mail. Depending on the particular needs of the student, I charge between $20-$30 an hour. I am happy to e-mail with potential students (or parents) and include more detailed price structures based on the situation. Please feel free to e-mail with questions.
I have taught and tutored at a University in Idaho, a community college south of Seattle, and at a top-ranking University in Seattle. My students have been exceptionally diverse, which is part of what I enjoy about teaching; I get to help people express new ideas and unique points of view.
