Personable, effective English, Math and Science Tutor

2013 Harvard Graduate - ACT/SAT/GMAT Tutoring; Admissions Consulting

The SAT Writing section is based on essay writing ability and grammar knowledge. I provide my students with advanced grammar strategies to improve paragraphs and anticipate errors.

I show students how to use this structure effectively while maintaining essay content that properly addresses the prompt. Hello! My name is Enyi, and I graduated from Harvard University in May 2013, and completed my MBA at Yale in 2016. At Harvard, I majored in Neur [more]
