Award-Winning Essay Editing Tutors in Washington, DC
Carl "...Each student is different and has his or her own unique needs and strengths. Having a set curriculum is helpful, but having one-on-one tutoring allows students to get individualized attention in the particular areas they need help with. My degree is in English with a concentration in writing and editing, but I am equally good with many math subjects, especially for the various standardized tests. My interests include writing, photography, travel, learning foreign languages, and learning about how language shapes the way we think. When I am not teaching, I work as a writer, editor, and photographer..."
