College Prep Tutor with Tutor Nerds

I am an English and college prep tutor working with TutorNerds LLC in Orange County, CA. https://tutornerds.com/

I attended UC Irvine (BA) and University of Southampton, UK (MA) and have enjoyed working with students privately and in the classroom for the past 10 years. Many of my students have been English Language Learners in some capacity and I encourage them to take advantage of the multi-cultural experience the US has to offer. I am currently working to develop ways that volunteer teachers and tutors can lend their expertise while also optimizing their time.
