I am a rising junior undergraduate student at Loyola University of Chicago. My major is in the English department with a focus on Creative Writing, and my minor is Theatre. I am in the Loyola University of Chicago Honors Program as well as a member of the Honors English Program.
I tutor English for test prep, application essays, and ESL/English Literacy. I also have experience in high school Spanish classes as I have taken Spanish 1 through AP Spanish and have earned credits from those courses.
I additionally have interest in all forms of creative writing, but specifically poetry which lends itself to songwriting and intersects with another passion of mine which is music.
I have been classically trained in piano and voice throughout my life, and have spent the last couple of years on a journey of songwriting and learning to play guitar. When it comes to music, I would feel most comfortable tutoring children or beginners in their endeavors.
I am most excited to tutor people who need help with essays/pieces of writing or with ESL (English as a Second Language)/English Literacy. I recently completed a course in Creative Nonfiction, where I gained a lot of insight in the process of writing about one's life and feel confident in this newfound ability to assist with writing application essays.
When it comes to ESL/English Literacy, I spent the first semester of my Sophomore year completing an internship through a course in which I worked with adult learners at the Loyola University of Chicago Literacy Center. I helped immigrants, refugees, and native English speakers of all skill levels work on their literacy through conversation as well as resources such as workbooks and prompts.
Other than my experience with high school Spanish classes which have allowed me to speak conversational Spanish, I am also fluent in Romanian.
I am excited to use the knowledge I have gained in my education and experiences to assist people through tutoring! Feel free to reach out to me.
