"I really love teaching and tutoring. My tutoring work began when I was in high school. My last tutoring job was a few years ago when I worked as a researcher at Harvard Medical School for a program called the "Harvard Bridge Program."

GRRM, as you may know, is famous for "Game of Thrones."

I look forward to hearing from you and learning about the sort of help you need. I would enjoy helping your child or, if you are an adult student, we can work together to improve in the subjects you select. I especially enjoy proofrea" less...
