I've always loved learning. To me, teaching is an extension of that thirst for education. I started tutoring my fellow classmates in high school and never stopped seeking to help others learn. In graduate school, I taught writing and rhetoric classes to students from the science and engineering schools, helping them develop vital communication skills. My biggest passion is for the English language -- I love helping students express their thoughts as well as teaching them how to see the b...

Sonya was prepared. She was interested in my vision and passion for this project and brought across great ideas and pointed out my deficiencies with care yet honesty. I?m so excited about this project because I know my screenplay will be better after our work is done!
- Yolanda T. from Jacksonville, FL
Their preparation for the ACT and SAT as well as for my AP exam was understandable and very helpful in improving the areas that I previously lacked in. I received the finer points I needed to improve my already sufficient skills to push them over the top. I was able to get everything I needed in sessions as short as an hour.

Sonya is wonderful to work with. I would have struggled with the essay prompts for days and procrastinated, but Sonya pulled the answers out of me in a way that was fun and painless. She put my thoughts into words in a way that looked really good. Thank you, Sonya.
- Siew U. from Mill Valley, CA
Sonya was patient and kind with my daughter. She taught her how to write and polish an essay. I have tried to help her for years, and all it took was 1 hr and 40 minutes with Sonya. Thank you.

Sonya is working with my daughter on reading comp and writing in preparation for the ACT and SAT tests. My daughter actually looks forward to her sessions! Her confidence is building and she seems to be having fun during the sessions--this despite my daughter being a math and science girl.

She was really great at explaining and helping me understand concepts for writing essays. Sonya is definitely an amazing teacher, and I can't wait for our next lesson!

She is very knowledgeable and has a very caring teaching style. She is always encouraging her students! She makes scheduling super easy and is very good at keeping in contact. Like reminders of lessons, etc... Our family would highly recommend Sonya!
- Patty H. from Camas, WA
She prepared me for for the GRE by helping me understand the reading comprehension and tackle complex passages with simple techniques. Techniques that will also be used in graduate school.
- Johnathan R. from Pasadena, CA
Sonya worked with my son who is really struggling and she was able to make an immediate impact on his current schoolwork. I would definitely recommend her for any student needing help with writing/grammar/etc.
- Terri G. from Portsmouth, NH
Sonya has a great set of eyes that can scan for any little details that need fixing, and she gives great suggestions on how to improve writing. With my poems, she told me how to convey my ideas better, and I know exactly what to fix.
- Miranda C. from Newport Beach, CA
I?ve met with Sonya several times and look forward to many more sessions as I study for the GRE. Sonya has the answers to all my questions and takes just the right amount of time to answer them. I?m learning a lot quickly. Sonya is one of the smartest tutors I?ve met by far.
- Peter W. from West Hollywood, CA
Sonya has been wonderful with my son! She is so responsive, knowledgeable and reliable. My son has had 2 lessons so far and I have already booked the next one. I?m so thrilled to have found her. I know my son will learn a tremendous amount from her.
- Sharon W. from Studio City, CA
Sonya helped my daughter to prepare ACT test. Only several lessons, my daughter improved a lot and got perfect score in the real test. She is the great tutor I highly recommend.
- Ming J. from Tustin, CA
Meeting with Sonya just once helped me improve my verbal score by quite a bit. She gave me some tips to quickly grasp the reading passages in the shortest amount of time. Thank you Sonya!
- Jill G. from Culver City, CA
I learned strategies to help me annotate my text more efficiently, how to make a preliminary outline for an essay, and key questions to ask myself during my reading. I really liked that Sonya got down to business right away and was very focused throughout the lesson. Going forward I feel more confident in knowing what to look for when I read. This will help me in completing my assignments. Thank you Sonya!
- Dora D. from Hacienda Heights, CA

- Ione G. from Redondo Beach, CA
Brainstorming ideas Writing table of contents Reading tips Writing a critical comment paper She is an awesome tutor! Definitely will continue to work and learn from her!
- Bora L. from Los Angeles, CA
Sonya was very helpful with redirecting my daughter's focus for setting up her essays, she gave her a realistic outlook of what will be expected for the test, she feels more confident that she has a chance to do well on the test with just the 1 session with Sonya, but she'll get to study with her again before the test which will give her an even better advantage. We really appreciate Sonya's help. She's very professional.
- Melanie J. from North Hollywood, CA
Sonya is a great tutor that understands communication. She was very helpful in pointing out distinctions between ethos, pathos, and logos. I look forward to my next lesson on March 29th, and am excited to learn more!
