I have taught middle and high school students in DC and South Africa, as well as tutored undergraduate students at Georgetown..."
Elizabeth "... I have worked as a writer and journalist for the past five years, and my expertise lies in helping students better their vocabulary, reading comprehension, and essay writing skills.

I'm very patient and focus heavily on those areas where a student is weakest..."
