Dustin is an excellent teacher who is always utterly open to communicate and help his students. He is willing to help his students when they have last-minute assignments. He treasures students’ time and recognizes their needs during the class, and he always explains materials patiently until students fully understand them. Dustin has helped me to improve my critical thinking skills. He taught me how to analyze readings effectively, how to write in-depth essays, use figurative language, and implicitly and explicitly demonstrate theme.

I consider that the best of tutoring is to get one on one attention to my writing weakness and to develop a plan and exercises to work on. I can say that I have improved my writing skills and I am able to proofread my essays with more skills than before. It has been a great experience to have personalized attention and ways of improving my writing skills.

Jay, business executive.
Help meticulously especially in writing, gives opportunities to practice all around 4 sections. I enjoyed having class with you too, Dustin.
Ryan, TOEFL student
The best thing about tutoring is that I get to receive helpful feedback that actually helps improve my writing.
8th grade ELA student
We have lots of practice and specific feedback, and every time we are learning a new thing, and get practice. Good job, Mr. Stevens!
Sarah, 12th grade ELA student
Dustin seems to have prepared lessons prior to class. Most in person English tutors are spontaneous and rarely prepare lesson plans.
Parent of 4th and 8th grade students
My son enjoys his tutoring sessions, and feels that his writing is improving!
