I have a Master's Degree in English and have taught for fifteen years in ESL, ACT, GED, SAT, SSAT, (critical reading and writing) both at Berlitz International and as a private tutor. I have more than a 170 hours of tutoring at Wyzant, with testimonials from former students. I can make the learning of grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation clear and understandable with the goal to improve a student’s speaking and writing ability. If your a university student, I can help you organize your paper into a coherent thesis. If you need to improve you speaking ability, I will help you improve your ability in the real world living language. If you are doing creative writing, I can give you a critical opinion based from my own experience in creative writing.
