I have a MA in Writing, concentration in composition and theory, as well as writing in new media. I have a tendency to think outside the box when presented with ideas -- sometimes without realizing my audience wasn't prepared for outside-the-box essays.

I can help you craft an essay, no matter the subject material, or, I can help you wade through compositional matter.

I also love diagramming sentences, which seems to be a lost art form... sadly. That's all I can think of for now, but here are a few questions the platform prompted me to answer:

What are your favorite subjects to tutor?
English composition/theory, grammar. I was always such a nerd in those classes, eager to learn everything I could, so I'll definitely be happy to share the education!

How many hours per week are you looking to stay busy with students?
5hr/week. I'm not looking to be stressed! I want to be able to have time between sessions to do my homework, too!
Do you have any upcoming vacations planned?

Do you prefer online or in person tutoring?
I haven't done online tutoring, so, so far, I enjoy in-person tutoring.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Teach to the student, as each is different and requires different teaching.

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

Get to know the student's issues with the subject at hand; figure out how I can help; set up goals for our next session.
