Improve your skills and scores with a Harvard grad.

I graduated from Harvard cum laude with a degree in History and Literature, and continue to coach writers of all levels, from middle school to professionals. A lifelong learner, I enjoy sharing my love of learning with others. A cum laude graduate of Harvard and an MFA graduate of Carnegie Mellon, I know from personal experience how hard work produces great results. An avid reader and lover of language, I also know how powerful it is to learn and master communication skills. With a strong eye for detail, I love helping students find stronger and clearer ways of expressing themselves verbally. [more]

Full Potential Tutoring

I have a very systematic strategy for tutoring English. Since I am a retired English teacher, I have a vast array of test preparation materials at my disposal. I am very familiar with the California Standards and I keep a checklist of the skills that your student has mastered or has yet to master. To foster a love of reading, it is important for your child to expand his or her vocabulary. I have a list of grade-level words that he/she needs to know, and I utilize fun and entertaining strategies to recall the meanings. I have sentence completion questions and critical reading questions. Once [more]

Exceptional and Efficient Writing, AP Lang, ACT, SAT, and GRE Tutor

My background has heavily focused on mastery of the English language. I have experience teaching writing and rhetoric at UC-Irvine. Writing is my passion, both personally and as an educator. I have an MFA in writing poetry, as well as years of experience writing fiction. I cover and recommend screenplays for a Hollywood agent, which requires an intimate knowledge of film as well as a strong attention to details both in terms of content and grammar. With my deep-seated understanding of grammar, I can help your student grow more articulate and precise in their use of language. [more]

Like to have fun learning!

I have a military background and after my military service I went back to school and finished a BA at UCLA in June of 2015. I graduated with a double major of International Development Studies and Japanese language and culture with a minor in global studies. I would often make friends with international students and help them with their studies since studying new subjects in a foreign language is very difficult. I would try to put difficult vocabulary into more simple terms. I have used my Ja... [more]

Experienced Tutor with MS in Physics Offering Multiple Subjects

At one time I was actually considering making English and English literature my life-long passion! I won several poetry and essay contests when I was younger, and I have tutored SAT English for several years now. I am also an experienced and accomplished science writer. I graduated with high honors from UC Merced in 2013 after only three years, and I graduated from CSU Fresno with an MS, also with honors. I've been tutoring since 2012, first at the Bali Learning Center in Merced (until Fall 2015), then privately once the travel became too much of a burden. As such, I have thousands of hours of [more]
