    It is a sad state to see so many grammatical errors, particularly for one who states that they are an “experienced teacher” who can tutor in English grammar or in a subject that they cannot even spell correctly.

    The mistakes I notice are:

    Misspelling “tutoring” Using the wrong word for a class, “Calculate” rather than “calculus” Not using a list for items they are not putting into a sentence, for example: Math Calculus English grammar Physics After school schedule Experienced teacher Convenient location Reasonable price If one is promoting that one can teach English grammar, that person should spell out everything on the sheet rather than using modern abbreviations, such as “info.” Capitalizing “grammar” when it is not a proper noun Putting a list in sentence form when no complete thought is present, for example:
    “I am available to teach math, calculus, physics, and English grammar and have a convenient after school schedule.” (If one wanted to write that all in one sentence.) The punctuation and capitalization of “Experienced teacher Convenient location, reasonable price,” is all wrong, and not even consistent. Those need to be put into a bulleted list with first letter capitalization or into a complete sentence, such as:
    I am an experienced teacher who can offer tutoring at a convenient location for a reasonable price. For more information, please contact me at the phone number below. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s tutoring needs.
    Lee : ###-###-####.

    I hope this was either a gag (perhaps someone was playing a prank on Lee) or that nobody seriously considered sending their child to be tutored by this person.

    You made such a good point about tutoring in “after school schedule.” There were so many mistakes, I mentally gave the person credit as I knew what was intended rather than what was written. Even the best writers need editors to catch errors we make in writing when we know what we mean, but it does not come across when written the way it was intended. This person certainly could have used a reviewer, or several.

    I particularly loved how she “tuters” in “after school schedule.” LOL Most people don’t teach this subject. ;D
