Tutoring Services

I work primarily via Skype. Sessions consist of a combination of lecture, discussion, writing-to-learn activities, collaborative note-taking, and formal writing. I use Google Drive to store and organize texts and assignments, and I use Google Docs to comment on students’ writing without taking over.

I can meet in person for students in New York City, and I can work on other platforms like Microsoft Office Online or Google Hangouts.
