I believe that students learn best when their personal life experiences are valued and incorporated into their education. I help students improve their reading and writing skills while uncovering key literary concepts that reveal ways texts can be meaningful to them.
— Maggie I.
MA in English
I enjoy teaching English concepts through storytelling and analogies. I use the Socratic method to make sessions into an engaging conversation instead of a boring lecture so I can better understand my students. I love helping students improve their writing and reading comprehension, especially when they previously found these areas challenging.
— Esteban O.
Bachelor of Arts in Psychology
I enjoy teaching writing not just because it’s a chance to help students craft better sentences and narratives, but also because it’s an opportunity to inspire students to notice—and wrestle with— more of the world. A piece of writing resonates because of deliberate choices made by the author, and I believe feedback should empower a student to express themselves fully (and coherently).

My daughter cried that she didn’t want a tutor before our first Gooroo writing session. But she had the most wonderful experience with her Gooroo tutor. Her tutor made it fun and exciting and my daughter asked right away when she was coming back. The tutor is very personable and understands exactly where and what my daughter needs help with. I highly recommend Gooroo!
