I am a rising junior at Trinity University pursuing a major in Linguistics and Russian in hopes of pursuing a graduate degree (Masters in English) and a career in education. As an avid reader and fluent trilingual student who is also studying beginning Spanish I can offer students individualized instruction. During the summer, I teach English at a private Christian school.

I love to help people write. I have been a very strong writer since middle school, when I first learned to really express my ideas in debate. Naturally, I would like to pass these skills forward! The skills I garnered in writing have really blessed me over the years!

In my opinion, if art is the honey of the soul, then writing is the alabaster of the mind! I enjoy helping students at my university to write effective essays. I give them tips, methods, and revisions of their grammar mechanics to express their thoughts clearly and concisely. In high school, I helped other students in the library prepare their college essays. I believe everyone has incredible thoughts and ideas to share with the world, and only need assistance to put them on paper. One of my friends once commented, "Alex, you are the goddess of editing," when I helped my sorority sisters improve their writing skills to get A's on their essays to increase our sorority's academic ranking.

I can help with a variety of subjects, but I especially can help with research papers, essays, grammar, reading comprehension, and learning to write essays under time pressure. I have been diagnosed with AD/HD since the first grade but have learned to channel and manage it effectively; I can especially help those for whom AD/HD is a hindrance to their academic success.

I enjoy walking, petting dogs, and drawing in my free time. I am a huge film buff who likes Wes Anderson and Steven Spielberg films. I love reading classic literature and comic books; my favorite novels are Anna Karenina and Colonel Chabert, whereas my favorite comic books are Calvin and Hobbes and Housepets! I read the New York Times and Wall Street Journal nearly every morning; I take notes of the writing styles from the opinion sections of both newspapers, because these publications maintain a high caliber of writing.

I hope to one day be a great English teacher like my teachers have been to me, either in a high school or university. A potential other dream of mine is to write or edit for the New York Times.
