We are looking for experienced English, Humanities and Essay Review tutors dedicated to making education more equitable to join our growing team.
Our team is comprised of language and writing experts who approach essay review as tutors rather than as editors or proofreaders, using the Socratic Method to engage with students and help them develop their writing skills by providing comprehensive reviews that focus on content, structure, tone, citations, as well as sentence-level mechanical issues such as grammar, punctuation, etc.
