University student and published writer with 5+ years of English tutoring experience; I love working with all ages!

Methodology

I adapt each and every one of my lessons to fit my students' individual needs! Whether you need homework help, lessons on grammar/vocabulary/reading, essay-writing aid, or just need a native English speaker to practice your English with, I am happy to help! I try my best to ensure every lesson is fun and engaging but also practical and educational.

I have worked with preschoolers, elementary schoolers, high schoolers, and even a couple university students! I am happy to tutor those of all ages. :)

Background

I'm a student in the Arts & Science Honours program at McMaster University (cGPA 3.93)! I work as an editorial intern and am also Editor in Chief of McMaster's Vault Publication. My writing has won international contests and been published in journals, anthologies, and online platforms. I was the sole recipient of my high school's graduating English award. I have over 5 years of tutoring experience!

Vicky has been a close friend of mine for 5 years and I’ve known her for over 10 years, meeting her in elementary school. We were first just classmates in the gifted program at school, but I was immediately drawn to her unique personality and charismatic nature and we soon became close friends. From a young age, she had exhibited a passion and enthusiasm for English, writing her own stories and publishing them online. Overtime, she developed and polished her writing skills, and frequently excelled in advanced courses like AP English literature and composition and AP English Language and Composition. She even has the skills to teach her peers, including me, by giving pointers on essay writing and analytically proofreading passages. She is straightforward with her feedback but is still supportive and will encourage you when you are feeling down. She is also very approachable and easy to talk to and is also very available in case you have any questions or trouble while working independently. Just shoot her a message and she will respond quickly, showing that she really takes the extra mile to help others. As a result, Vicky is the optimal choice for an English tutor. With her analytical mind combined with explosive imagination and patient demeanor, she is sure to provide top-tier teaching to anyone who needs it.

Vicky is a hard-working, reliable, and patient teacher who easily explains difficult concepts with clarity. Her outgoing attitude and creative mindset set her apart from the average teacher.

F

Vicky is very patient and helpful when giving feedback. I've known her for years and she was amazing at providing comments on my writing which helped me perfect my work. She pays attention to the details, is extremely knowledgeable in her area, and is always willing to help. I highly recommend Vicky to anyone needing help with English.
