Currently, I have been a college-level writing tutor for three years at my university's writing center. During my time, I've collaborated with a culturally diverse range of students on a variety of writing styles and practices. I'm passionate about working with all writers at every stage of the writing process. Whether I'm helping a STEM student outline their biology paper, or a philosophy student revising their thesis, I am committed to helping all writers. For this reason, I find Grade Potential's commitment to all students highly admirable.
As an English Major and philosophy minor, my course work has taught me essential skills in reading, analyzing, and composing texts. Currently, I am set to graduate this summer. My experience at the writing center has taught me valuable skills such as collaborating with others, the value of research and putting theory into practice. Formally, I acquired essential tutoring skills while taking the course "Writing Center Theory and Practice", and am currently enrolled in a course for assisting culturally and linguistically diverse learners. In my writing center course, we studied the writing center theory and applied it during our practicum. Additionally, I've taken multiple opportunities for professional development- including undergraduate research and participating in international conferences.
Throughout my undergraduate degree, I've attended and presented at multiple academic conferences and workshops. During the fall of 2019, I presented at an international writing center conference, attended an intensive weekend workshop with a group of undergraduate researchers, and co-hosted a conversation on the TEDXMSUDenver stage. My education, my experience as a peer consultant, and the conferences and workshops I've participated in have all taught me about the transformative potential of writing.
