I have been a writing tutor for three years, and I love every moment of it! I enjoy seeing students grow and learn new skills, become more confident in their work, and receive better feedback from teachers, professors and supervisors. I specialize in college-level research papers, so please reach out if you need help with them.

I also enjoy working with ESL and Lithuanian, Spanish, and Russian language students. I came to the U.S. eight years ago. Though I had strong English skills, I still struggled with writing. It was only because of my tutor that I was able to grow confident in my skills. Having been both a tutor and a tutee has shown me how to better understand my own learning style, as well as others learning styles. Learning a new language was extremely challenging, and I empathize with others who are trying to learn a new language. I am not here to judge you. I am here to support you and help you become fluent, so that the expression of your ideas matches the quality of their content.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I relate to students to better understand their needs. It is better to be an approachable teacher than one who knows everything about the subject.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I assess the student's skills, both written and oral, during the first session. I also try to get to know the student, so we usually have a conversation about the student's interests and career as well as goals for the lesson and tutoring.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I teach him strategies to improve his skills rather than correct every mistake he or she makes.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I take more time to teach it, and I try to vary up my examples and approaches.
