Does your teen need help in the humanities? I am a Waldorf HS English/History teacher-in-training with many years of experience tutoring writing, including three years as a writing tutor at Brown University. I'm available to work one-on-one with students to help them with classwork, to coach for AP Tests and SATs, or to help with college essay prep. I have a special interest in working with kids with special needs, so I'm sensitive to kids whose strengths are not always visible in regular classroom settings. If you'd like more info, please give me a call or drop me a line. Kristin Agudelo, 207-450-9698 or firstname.lastname@example.org. (09/18)

CV and writing samples available on request. Kristin Agudelo, 207-450-9698 or email@example.com. (09/18)
