As an undergraduate studying English at Brigham Young University, I wanted to help other students learn to write well and succeed in their college writing experiences. So I worked as a writing consultant at BYU's Research & Writing Center, helping students across campus to brainstorm, organize, craft, and revise their writing. During my time at the RWC, I completed over 700 tutoring sessions, working with writers and assignments from more than 150 courses on our campus. I enjoyed learning how to coach others in writing so much that I went on to complete a master's degree, emphasizing in rhetoric and composition and writing my thesis on experiential education in writing classrooms. I also taught two years of first-year writing and one year of advanced persuasive writing. When it comes to tutoring, writing of any kind is my jamapplication materials, personal statements, resumes, essays, research papers, literature reviews, etc. I love working one on one with writers to help them achieve their goals and to equip them with principles and tools so that after they leave a tutoring session with me, they feel more confident in facing their future writing assignments. When I hang up my teaching/tutoring cap for the day, I trade it most often for an apronI'm an aspiring cook, baker, and especially saucier, always on the hunt for ways to turn whole foods into delectable meals and treats.
