Hello! My name's Nick Bassman. I'm a rising senior at Oberlin College, majoring in Creative Writing with minors in Environmental Studies, English, and Politics. My extracurricular pursuits include music, theatre, and--of course--tutoring.
I've worked for over a year as a Course Writing Associate through Oberlin's Writing Center, gaining experience in both one-on-one tutoring and classroom lecturing. I can adapt easily to a wide variety of learning styles, and I'm eager to find what works best for each student.
In workshop classes for my Creative Writing major, I've learned how to guide and challenge my peers in ways that bring out their strengths and make ideas "click" for them. This is always my foremost goal as a tutor.
I believe that it's essential for students to be excited about what they're learning. You can only retain information and make unique connections if you're making a conscious effort to engage with the subject. Whether you're writing an essay or trying to make it through a history chapter, dig deep and find the angle that lights you up. Pursue that light as far as it leads you.
