Gina

I attended DePaul University, and in December, I received a Bachelor of Arts in English, with a concentration in Literary Studies, and French. During my time at DePaul, I was a Writing Center Tutor at the University Center for Writing-based Learning. There, I worked with students from a variety of disciplines on their writing. For example, I tutored freshman who were working on rhetorical analyses as well as senior psychology majors working on personal statements for grad school. The diversity of writing I worked with fostered a sense of adaptability in me that I bring to every new tutoring session. I also tutored English Language Learners, focusing more on the technical aspects of language and honing their speaking skills. I tutor any subject under the broad spectrum of English: college writing, reading comprehension, literary analyses, speech and argumentative writing, and so forth. I also tutor French! I received my degree in French and spent a semester abroad in Paris, where I lived with a host family and soaked in the culture, like a slice of baguette bread mopping up a delicious sauce.

My tutoring style is direct but not overbearing: I know how to direct students to the right answer, but I will do so through leading questions, providing examples, or referencing rules or conventions that the student has learned previously. Students possess the knowledge the obtain the right answer but sometimes have to be guided to it; that's the purpose of education and tutoring. Because education is so monumental in shaping students' futures, it's crucial that they receive the attention necessary to succeed.

Because of my love of all things literary, my hobbies include reading, writing, and attending literary events such as poetry and fiction readings. I also love to dance and to play piano; anything musical interests me! I am a certified Francophile: French food, movies, and culture absolutely excite me, and I love to share my knowledge and experience with others!
