My specialty is writing. I love to write, but I became a good, solid writer when someone took the time to show me how to do it! Let me share with you some easy ways to improve your writing. With some simple skills, your writing will be more understandable to your audience, less awkward, and grammatically correct. I can help you create an outline or organize your paper, proofread it and then give you suggestions to clarify your point further. I have served as a proofreader/editor for a small literary journal and I have proofreading and editing experience working with people who published in their own career journals. I will provide a no-pressure atmosphere, as it is up to you to do the necessary work. But, I am happy to help you get started, proofread along the way, and offer suggestions that might make your paper more interesting and relevant.

How do I contact this tutor?

Click the blue “email” button to access NextGuru’s free messaging system. Here you may ask questions about experience, teaching methods, availability, rate... However, for the privacy of our members, no contact information may be exchanged in the free messaging area. When you are ready to make direct contact, click the “Register for trial class” link to register and pay for your 1st trial class.

What is a trial class?

Finding the right tutor takes more than a teaching profile page – it requires the right chemistry… Therefore, all our tutor members have agreed to offer new students a trial class to help determine if there’s a great fit. This means no semester-long contracts… just find a tutor, pay the flat NextGuru trial class fee and have a test run!

What happens after the trial?

That’s completely up to you! You have no obligation to continue classes. If you decide to continue, you work out the details (including schedule and payment method) directly with your instructor. If the chemistry wasn’t right, just come back to NextGuru and you can try another instructor…

How does NextGuru get paid?

All instructors are eligible for free membership – this is critical so that you can have the broadest, most diverse selection of teachers possible. Therefore, instead of paying a mandatory membership fee or a commission on lessons, our tutor members have given up their one-time trial class fee to help pay for technology and marketing costs.
