" In addition, I think it's important to use the knowledge that students already have to allow them to discover and intuit answers that they didn't know they were capable of producing. This requires enhancing each student's confidence as developing writers and readers. My extensive experience as a tutor and teacher has informed this approach. I've worked for three years at a local university's writing center, and for two and a half years as an adjunct English composition professor. ."

" My years at Princeton developed my passion for human rights, and also solidified my desire to help others. During my senior year, I researched and compared the educational systems and conditions faced by Chinese migrant children and those faced by undocumented children in America.

" The funny part is that while I always enjoyed writing and had a passion for it, I was never very good. I had my problems with my own writing and certainly not, at first, qualified to tutor anyone else in it.
