"Experienced English Tutor: Essays, Term Paper Emergencies, and ESL"
When I started tutoring 5 years ago, I worked for a major tutoring center chain in San Francisco.

Mariana was very concerned about meeting my daughter's needs at the tutoring session. My daughter had never been tutored in Chemistry, but had many questions when reviewing for an exam and requested a tutor. Mariana went to great lengths to get topics in advance so that she could bring appropriate study examples. She truly cared about preparing my daughter for the exam, and did a great job.
