I have tutoring experience from the elementary level up to undergrads, and also teach English as a second language online. I tailor my classes to the particular student, based on what their needs are (i.e. writing, public speaking, studying, grammar, etc.), and I'm happy to meet at intervals that are appropriate for each student.
I've been tutoring and teaching for over six years, both art and writing, and have helped people achieve higher grades in undergrad English courses. I teach both individuals and groups, and my flexibility and attention to each person makes people repeatedly return to my classes or sessions.
Students should cancel at least 24 hours in advance. Depending on length of travel, I may charge an extra fee (no more than $12). I charge $20/hour for individual lessons, but am happy to offer discounts to repeat students, for more simple lessons (i.e. English language or public speaking), and to people who sign up for more than one class immediately.
