I believe that life is precious and far too short for many of us, so I choose to live by the motto, "Work hard, and play harder." While I don't believe that you have to work hard in order to enjoy life, I choose to work hard so that I can enjoy all this life has in store for me. I find most of my joy in this life come from helping others. I have tutored in the areas of English and Essay Writing for the past ten years. While pursuing my Master's degree in English from Auburn University Montgomery, I taught English Composition and worked as a tutor in the Student Learning Center. I worked with traditional and non-traditional students in subject areas such as Basic College Writing, Introduction to Composition and Introduction to American Literature. While pursuing my Ph.D. in English from The University of Georgia, I taught courses in English Composition and American Literature and worked as a Writing tutor in the University Writing Center. As a Writing tutor, I worked with undergraduate and graduate students from all disciplines, tutoring in such areas as grammar and mechanics, organization, thesis development, APA and MLA formatting. In this capacity I have worked with students in all grade levels, as well as professionals, in the areas of English and Essay Writing. As a tutor, I strive to maintain a student-centered tutoring environment, in which I focus on higher order concerns and help students develop a level of comfort in identifying and correcting errors in their writing.
