Exceptional All-Ages English Tutor and Copy/ Line Editing Wiz

Over the last four years I have helped students--including many first generation college students--develop successful college application essays and personal statements. I work with students to find the right balance for their applications: helping to articulate their unique strengths in a way that communicates their merit to the institution while also showing their interests, personality, and individual voice. Our lessons will involve some research, brainstorming, and writing practice. The first lesson sets up a gameplan for producing the student's first draft(s) while the lessons that follow [more]

Enthusiastic French and English tutor specializing in Language

I am familiar with diagnostic tests which college planning centers use for their clients. I worked as an assistant for Dollars for College in the Fair Oaks area helping students write college essays and narrow their choices for college application.

I feel that my tutoring sessions should provide more than support with subject material. Students will build confidence in their learning as well as a greater desire to excel when working with m [more]
