I am a graduate student currently working on my PhD in Literature. While I love reading and writing, my favorite part of graduate school has been working as a teaching assistant and helping undergraduate students improve their reading and writing skills. I love discovering students' different interests and personalities and seeing how their own unique knowledges come out in their work. As a TA, I found that students' writing changed the most when we could work one-on-one in office hours -- those are the people who came back to me and thanked me for helping them improve and build on their skills so much. That's what I love about tutoring: it really affords the time and space for me to give personalized, individual attention and feedback.
