ExperienceI'm a tutor who taught writing courses for about three years. I have a master's degree in creative writing from Cornell University.I'm experienced in tutoring a variety of disciplines. Here's a sample of them: phonics, literature, grammar and mechanics, essay editing, SAT Verbal, language, writing, public speaking, ACT prep, PSAT prep, MAP prep, etc. Out of all the subjects I listed, my favorites to teach are language and writing. It doesn't matter what type of writing I assist my students with. Whether it involves college personal essays or verbal reasoning for the GRE, I love it. I'm a huge believer in the skill of writing as a way to communicate well, and I do what it takes for my students to achieve that skill.The approach I use to help my students succeed is focused on good communication. We have conversations about what they like and don't like about school. I use what they tell me to build an individual path to guide them toward their objectives.When I need to take a break from tutoring, I hike, travel, play my guitar, and work on my book in the comfort of my home in Playa Del Rey, California.
HobbiesHiking, traveling, and playing guitar, and I'm currently working on a novel.
