I have worked with Ms.Ali plenty of times. The passion she puts into her job to make sure that I understand every material is amazing. There were plenty of times she spent her lunch periods with me to give extra one on one time when need after graduating from being her student, she has always kept in touch with me. In college, I can email her any material that I do not understand, and she finds the most amazing way to show me over video chat. She had gave me better clarification sometimes then my own professors/teachers.

I'll help you prepare for this exam by exploring the six elements of effective writing including: punctuation, grammar and usage, sentence structure, strategy, organization, and style.

If you are in need of a Usage/Mechanics review we can practice:

Punctuation- conventions of internal and end-of-sentence punctuation; the relationship of punctuation to meaning for avoiding ambiguity an indicating appositives.

Grammar and Usage - agreement between subject and verb, between pronoun and antecedent, and between modifiers and the word modified; verb formation; pronoun case; formation of comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs; and idiomatic usage.

Sentence Structure - we can also practice relationships between and among clauses, placement of modifiers, and shifts in construction.

If you need to brush up on your Rhetorical Skills:

We can delve into Strategy - together we can develop topics by choosing expressions appropriate to an essay's audience and ...

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

Our understanding of and ability to utilize language has a major impact on the course of our lives. Personally, it affects the way we communicate, develop, and even behave in everyday interactions and relationships. Professionally, it dictates how efficiently and effectively we communicate with employees, colleagues, managers, and clients, which in turn affects our performance, potential, and ultimately, our income.

I work with writers, editors and publishers, students, linguists from translators to quality managers, and a variety of professionals who seek ways to get the most value out of their content.

Language should always have a function. My main goal is to help you ensure that your language and content function in the most valuable way possible for either yourself or your business.

For over half a decade I worked in the Language Service Provider (LSP) industry in multiple roles such as: Project Management, Operations, Client Relationship Management, and Account ...

The Science section is just reading comprehension...and you don't need to read that much! I teach my students how to attack the Science ACT and get great results-with time management skills, strategy, tips and just a bit of reading. My students' scores have increased from 2-7 points with my help and some practice!

I can't say enough about the knowledge and support Rebecca provided for my daughter while preparing for college exams. Rebecca offered test insights and clues to breakdown difficult passages and tricky answers - boosting my daughter's scores significantly! Happy to share that my daughter is accepted by her first choice college. Rebecca is professional, tenacious, positive and a joy to work with. Wish I could give her 10 stars!
