Three years experienced in Credit Repair. I currently own a Credit Repair Business, where I create and send dispute letters to the credit bureaus! My clients ask me all the time to teach them how to do it themselves and I'm more than happy to. I get really creative with ALL my dispute letters! I will teach you what to say on your letter, how to write/type it. I provide credit education and goal worksheets! Let's get started!

Writing is one of the most important skills you can have in our current society. My personal instruction includes, critical thinking skills in writing, philosophy, structure and form. Students will learn by evaluating many different levels of text. They will then progress to developing their own techniques and expanding their current vocabulary.

Daniel cancelled my son's first lesson with less than a one hour notice. He attended the second lesson, but again cancelled the third lesson with a 30 minute notice. He sent me a text message to notify me and I called him back and left a voicemail. 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten a call back. I want my money back. He has wasted my son's time. Poor professionalism.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used in order to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc. Taking at look at and examining your writing process together will allow us to customize the tutoring session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

Nick is a wonderful teacher, he is knowledgeable and perceptive. I first came to Nick for help on my essay for my college application. He was able to help me narrow down the options of topics to write about so that I could confidently write about a topic I am passionate about. He continued to help me outline and structure the paper so that it would be organized and academically acceptable, and finally, he helped with editing so that the final copy was ready. A few months later I received my letter of acceptance.
After helping with my college application essay, Nick continued tutoring me through my semester at Community College. he taught me how to do a close reading, to arrange paragraphs, and to better phrase my ideas. He offered new ways to strengthen my writing. Nick is so patient and full of encouragement, I could not have made it through the semester without him.

Nick is very patient and knowledgeable. He has helped me reconstruct many paragraphs in essays/college papers that I had to write. He has a keen eye and sees all the little mistakes and ways things could be rewritten to convey point. He has looked over several of my papers and edited them, and also helped me to learn to write better- not just fixing the problem for me. I have watched my grades go from C's to A's over time, he's great !

Thank you Larry."
