Tutor Satisfaction Guarantee
Hi! I'm Jamira. Two months into the pandemic, I graduated summa cum laude from St. Mary's University with a B.A. in English Literature and Language. I am an award-winning writer and editor with four years of formal tutoring experience and a passion for the written word, regardless of genre or form.
As an undergraduate student, I served as a writing tutor in my university's Learning Assistance Center for three years, guiding dozens of fellow undergraduate and graduate students through various stages of the writing process. After obtaining my bachelor's degree, I spent a year working as a student success coach with the education nonprofit City Year San Antonio, where I provided academic tutoring and social-emotional intervention to at-risk students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.
