"Hello! My name is Desiree D. I am a teacher, artist, and writer with an advanced degree in History as well as an undergraduate degree in the same, both degrees focused on the elements of academic and/or argumentative writing and debate.

I am a current AP English and AP History high school instructor who has been teaching ELA and Social Studies in the classroom at a middle and high school level since 2016. Before I began teaching in the classroom, I worked as a writing tutor in diverse environments for students as young as first grade all the way through college and even worked with some adults continuing their educations or seeking help with writing projects. While an undergraduate, I also spent two summers as a remedial reading specialist for at-risk students in the K-12 range.

I approach education by helping students to engage with the academic writing process through a fresh, engaging, and holistic approach. I teach and help employ a unique step-by-step approach to essays that incorporates creative thinking, pre-writing organization, and thesis development and support, all while discovering and encouraging each student's strengths.

One of my most popular specialties is Essay Help. I have spent years teaching the writing process to virtually every type of student. I can help with many things: individual essay help, editing and proofreading, formal style guide training (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.), argumentative tactics, rhetorical devices, and I can teach my special step by step approach to anyone, a practice that will carry students through their academic careers and the rest of their lives. I have a record of success with hundreds of students of all different skill levels.

I am also experienced and able to help with reading comprehension, rhetorical and literary analysis, remedial reading, and test preparation for all AP English and AP History exams, and the language arts sections of the ISEE, the SAT, and the ACT." less...
