Strive for success in reading/writing/SAT/ACT/TOEFL/IELTS

Sciences, Test Prep, English & Math, Literature, and Biology

My passion for teaching was founded by my own experience as a student. Throughout my academic career, the challenges I encountered refined my own approach to understanding subjects, and the ensuing success after overcoming such obstacles brought me further love for learning and those subjects. I want to transmit that feeling of accomplishment to students as they master their own subjects, and hopefully foster a passion for further learning and success in any of their other endeavors. As a to... [more]

English Language and Literature Tutor

Teaching advanced writing skills have been part of my focus, especially for mother-tongue speakers of English.

I have five years' experience of teaching English language and literature, and two years' experience of teaching Biblical Studies, as well as fifteen years' experience of teaching the Christian faith in informal settings. I hold the following degrees: a Ba [more]
