English Literature Expert with a honours Masters degree in Downtown New Westminster

Methodology

My approach first involves putting you, the student, at ease with my relaxed and open manner. Then I address what you particularly require in the way of assistance. Once we have established our goals we can address them in manageable parts in order to achieve success, whether in improving your grades, assisting you to write a stronger paper or helping you ace an exam.

Background

I am a writer and tutor with over 15 years of experience and a Masters degree in English Literature from Simon Fraser University. I teach essay writing, test preparation, English conversation and specialize in poetic interpretations. I have published 13 books and am a friendly and efficient instructor!

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $38
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $35

Details

I charge 5 more per hour if I am traveling to a student's home. I will charge 35 an hour instead of 40 if the work is done online.
