    As for me

    One of my students wrote (in her essay based on Tom Soyer):

    Aunt Polly is a little pushy, a chatterbox, may be stern, but, as for me, she is nice.

    I feel like 'as for me' shouldn't be there, but I cant't think of a better phrase (perhaps 'to me' would work here?). Can you help?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    "as for me" certainly doesn't work there. "to me" would work if the speaker is giving her opinion on Aunt Polly's character or even trying to say "Aunt Polly is nice to (towards) me".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
