EducationBSc in Ecology and Economics from the University of Edinburgh
MSc in Environmental Policy from the London School of Economics
Experience790 on SAT Math (2230 overall), 35 on the ACT, and 8 AP subjects with scores of 4 and 5 -- scary how you never seem to forget these numbers!
I've tutored in various capacities over the years; from English language while in Korea to environmental stewardship in Nicaragua. In high school I tutored students in reading at a bilingual elementary school where many pupils were learning to read in English as they learned to speak it!
My higher education is heavy on the STEM subjects--I love the "aha" moment when derivatives make sense, or I can rattle off Latin names of tropical ants, and I love sharing that discovery with others. However, for middle and high school students I'm qualified to tutor in the humanities as well, having taken AP courses in American, European, and World History, and English Language and English Literature.
I have ample experience in proof-reading and editing: I have proof-read three undergraduate dissertations and three Master's theses, in addition to being hired as a proof-reader for a professional publication. For essays I'm happy to quote according to page or word length rather than hourly.
HobbiesI make a mean lemon bar, run without ever racing, and have pen-pals in four different countries.

Willow is a fantastic tutor for writing. She knows her writing formats well, can spot even the tiniest errors easily, and has great tips for organizing the paper to achieve the best results. She is very accommodating, flexible, and efficient which are invaluable qualities. I highly recommend her!
Need to boost your grades on assignments? Willow is as excellent a proof-reader as she is a writer. As her academic experience is in both the sciences and humanities, she is familiar and excels at both writing styles. Not only does she know where something needs to be changed, she can explain the grammatical theory behind why they should be changed, and so you learn to improve for next time. In addition to straight-up proofing, Willow provides advice regarding structure and style, and can help you achieve your word count. I highly recommend Willow's services.
