Hello, I'm Thomas, a sophomore Computer Science student at Georgia Tech. While I may be a STEM major at a tech school, I've always been skilled in reading and writing, never earning less than A in an English class throughout my academic career. If you're looking for someone with a high success rate in English, whether it be standardized testing or general writing, you're in the right place. In high school, I received a perfect score on the SAT writing section (only missed perfect on Verbal by 10 points), won first place in the UIL Regional Ready Writing Contest, and served as an editor on the school newspaper. While completing my university English requirement, I created an online tour stop for Atlanta's National Center for Civil and Human Rights.
I've never tutored through a professional service, however I've improved the reading, writing, and general English skills of many people. I've edited everything from AP Literature/Language & Composition essays to college applications for my brothers and friends. I also served as a teaching assistant at Julian T. Saldivar Elementary during my high school's weekly Wednesday service program with the Dallas Commit! partnership. There, I worked with students on everything from basic reading skills to essays writing for the STAAR test (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness). Regardless of skill level or concentration area, I'm committed to improving your English skills.
