"Hi there, I'm Evan. I graduated from Flagler College with a BA in Philosophy and Religion, with minors in English and Psychology. After college, I earned my TESOL/TESL/TEFL certification, then spent a year in South Korea teaching English. I taught children of all ages, as well as college students and adult learners. When I returned to the States, I worked full-time in a community college writing center for three years.

In the writing center, I tutored hundreds of students of all backgrounds and ability levels. I learned the reasons a student may struggle are myriad: the coursework bores the student; the student doesn't care about the subject; the student genuinely doesn't understand, or is intimidated by the course content. I will tailor my approach to your student's needs. We can talk about sentence structure, grammatical fluency, and vocabulary. We can talk about study skills, efficient note-taking, and strategies for effective memorization. If it relates to English, reading comprehension, essay writing, composition/rhetoric, literary criticism/theory, punctuation/grammar, vocabulary, or general test prep . . . we can talk about it!

I was and am a passionate self-learner, and I know how to spark that interest in others, too. If it's not interesting (to YOU), you won't remember it for a test, let alone truly understand it for practical use later in life. Rote memorization only gets you so far. Interest will get you anywhere, and have a fun time on the journey.

If you'd like to chat further, contact me for a FREE 30-minute consultation. We'll have a conversation about goals (better grades, deeper understanding of the subject matter, higher scores on college entrance exams, improved writing/studying/thinking ability), and challenges (disinterest, confusion, overwhelm, apathy, frustration). Together, we'll make a plan to overcome your student's particular challenges, and reach his or her (or your) specific goals. Then, we'll set up a schedule to keep the conversation going. Let's get started!" less...
