English Tutoring

About My Tutoring

Over the last few years, I have applied my English skills by helping others at the collegiate and high school level. I assist my students with the copy editing of their papers, help them with their sentence structure and with the ability to strongly analyze the textual evidence that they are trying to support. I also specialize in reading comprehension and standardize test preparation. Please enjoy these testimonials below!
