Literature, Academics, Grammar or ESL from a North American Instructor, With UK Higher Level Education if you need help with English in school or as a language I can assist you.

Methodology

I hold a Master of Science Degree in Archaeology, and have taught hundreds of students in multiple countries over the last 10 years. Each student that I help gets a customised lesson plan based on their needs and goals, and each lesson is a minimum of 40 minutes tailored to the students specific learning objectives. It is my goal to help every student succeed and to that end I try and determine the students best learning method and tailor each lesson to make sure they get the most out of the experience. So if you want help with your homework, or you want to learn English as a second language I can and will help you to succeed.

Background

I have been teaching for 10 years in many subjects, and over that period I have taught hundreds of student in classes, and one on one sessions. My students have seen marked improvements in their grades, passed exams in subjects they were struggling with, learned to speak English fluently from a base of no English at all, and gone on to higher levels of education with my help. Each of my custom tailored tutoring programs focuses on a students goals interests, and growing their abilities at a strong pace. learning should be something that we all want to do and I approach teaching from that perspective, and try to help my students do the same.
