I am a student at Gunn, and English is much easier in terms of difficulty than math or science.

I got straight A's so far(including honors). You may not need a tutor, unless you are not a native speaker or are mentally defunct.

English Ellie,
I think you meant mentally deficient rather than mentally defunct. The word defunct means "not existing anymore."
Although you find English easier than math and science, there are many students who have a different experience, especially with essay writing. As an English teacher, I can assure you that not all those needing an English tutor are English language learners or mentally deficient.
