I provide individual tutoring for students from middle school up through university. I have over 11 years of experience working with students. I am well versed in proofreading, editing, as well as helping students form a thesis, writing introductions, body paragraphs, conclusions, outlines, citing references, and building reading comprehension skills. I have experience working with PSAT and SAT preparation, including the new SAT. Together we will work to break apart reading assignments and form complex and compelling arguments.
I have a BA in English with a double-major in writing and theatre. I am a member the English Honor Society of Sigma Tau Delta and graduated cum laude. I teach at a private educational company, part-time, and work as an instructional aide at Berkeley High School, where I tutor students in English and Lit as well as History, Science and Math. I have developed my own curriculum in multiple subjects and work best by identifying weaknesses in students' abilities and tailoring my teaching to their individual needs.
I am based on Oakland/Berkeley area and frequently travel to SF as well. I am happy to meet in cafes or libraries around the area. I am also available for teaching through skype.
