Hi! My name is Courtney Dobson. I am very excited for the opportunity to tutor students. I have ten years’ experience in academia. I hold a PhD and Master’s degree from a top British University and I have lectured at the undergraduate level in both Buffalo, NY and the UK. I am equally passionate and meticulous about writing and I have experience editing college papers in the social sciences. As a lecturer, I understand both the challenges and expectations for students to produce good quality work. I have a calm and patient demeanor and I aim for students to become independent thinkers by providing an opportunity for them to articulate and conceptualize their ideas effectively in writing, while challenging them to consider alternative perspectives and to think critically about key arguments. The opportunity to engage with students and to support them to achieve their academic goals is what motivates me as a tutor.
