I am a professional writer with years of teaching/tutoring experience in English., and with six years of recent teaching at the university level, both graduate and undergraduate. I teach English writing at any level, but prefer to work with university students, preferably upper-level high schools, or students studying online, adults (any level to highly advanced), newcomers to Ontario, elementary students with particular challenges, or those preparing for high school level work.

$30 per hour
Maximum time per session 3 hours unless a special workshop or seminar. The minimum time is 1 full hour.
I come to the student; a clean, quiet, and ideally private area must be provided for the tutoring.
If the student's home is impossible, an acceptable alternative will be agreed upon (library, school, coffee shop).
With a support package, I provide ongoing support to the student over email between tutoring sessions as they work to improve their writing skills, or whatever area they are seeking help with, or project. The tutoring I provide is intended to support the student to become an autonomous, motivated learner. Towards that goal, I ensure that each tutoring session is a positive and motivating experience.
I can teach, of course, small groups or seminars or workshops as well, and would adjust for group rates. Workshops can be done in ANY setting.
Online tutoring must be planned in conjunction with at least a few face-to-face sessions.
If a student needs ongoing regular tutoring over an entire semester or year, please talk to me if the cost is an issue for you. I am approachable.
