Friendly ESL, Spanish, English Tutor

I am very competent to tutor all aspects of writing and reading. This includes grammar, literature, proofreading, reading and writing. I briefly majored in English in college and it was my strongest subject throughout my school years. Hello! I am a former high school Spanish teacher who has discovered that I much prefer smaller group settings or one-on-one. Knowing a second language is a must in today's society and I also include ESL tutoring in my subjects. I took 5 years of Spanish in public school and more in college, and could write Spanish and speak simple Spanish phrases, but really c [more]

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

As a rising senior and dual neuroscience and public health major in college, I have a great deal of experience with writing, from both a scientific perspective and a humanities one. As a result, I understand the nuances and difficulties that arise in the writing process, specifically for students, and how to go about addressing them. I have used this understanding to tutor students in the SAT and ACT writing sections as well, allowing students to better understand writing and structure in the context of a multiple choice test.

Master Tutor for Test Prep (SAT/ACT), Physics with Customized Lessons

In SAT and ACT test prep I am actually more highly ranked in Critical Reading, Writing, and English than I am in Math. But in all cases I am on the front page, ranked a month ago #1-#4 out of 800-1000 local WyzAnt tutors claiming to teach thosetest prep areas to 10-12th graders. Then seeing what I was doing with older siblings, my tutor parents began requesting me to teach their 4th and 6th graders (all but one boys) to write better. That is a challenge; often 4th grade boys would rather spend their time on video games than sit down and write a 3 page essay for their tutor every week. But [more]
