Hello students and parents,

My name is Alice and I am a recent graduate from ASU (BA in Lit., Writing and Film) plus I graduated from the prestigious Barrett Honors College at ASU. I graduated with top honors and was also an honors student at the community college. As a student at ASU, I was also a writing, math, nutrition and geology tutor for ASU. In addition to my daily tutoring sessions, I also led tutoring, study and note taking workshops and was also a Trio tutor (a specialized one-on-one tutor).

For my Barrett Honors project, I started a Barrett Writing Center on ASU's Poly campus. I heavily researched, interviewed and surveyed writing tutoring theories and developed a unique writing center for honors students. I presented my findings to Barrett and the center continues to serve students. Needless to say, I am passionate about writing tutoring. I am passionate about all tutoring as I feel I have a unique skill in helping students understand what their academic challenge is and how to conquer that challenge.

I also worked in an elementary school as a Kindergarten assistant. Here I sharpened my elementary tutoring skills while working one-on-one with five and six year olds.

Presently, I worked briefly for a small marketing firm as their primary writer, but when the firm downsized because of the tough economy, my position was eliminated. What this means is that I am totally available to help you reach your academic or professional goals. I also have years of experience working with ESL students in the their writing, reading and comprehension of the English language.

My experience shows that I work well with others and that you can depend on me to help you pass your exam, learn how to become a stronger writer and to gain more subject area knowledge.

I look forward to meeting you and to help you with your tutoring needs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked as a Kindergarten assistant where I taught the class curriculum, worked one-on-one with students, administered proficiency tests, helped plan the daily activities and supported my teacher where ever needed. I also was in charge of the students during recess, lunch and when the teacher had other duties.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked one-on-one with Hispanic ESL Kindergarten students and with college ESL students with their writing, reading and math. I have worked with students where their native language is Spanish, Korean or middle eastern. I would be happy to work with you to help you understand the nuances of the English language; to help you succeed either academically or professionally.

Nutrition

I have taken the college course Nutrition 242 and received an A for both the Lab and class. I have tutored in Nutrition at ASU and can help you with your basic Nutrition coursework.

Sewing

I have been sewing (and crafting) for over 35 years and continue to enjoy it. I have experience with making clothes, basic quilting, home furnishings like pillows, blankets, floral and wreath arrangements. I have a specialty with stenciling (a lost art) and with using preserved flowers. I am happy to share my expertise and skill with you.

Study Skills

Having graduated with top honors both at the community college and ASU (plus Barrett the Honors College), I have created and honed my study skills which I am happy to share with you. I have mastered time management, test preparation and researching skills that have enabled me to do quality academic (and professional) work.
As an honors student and tutor, I researched, interviewed professionals and developed study skills which I was able to implement into my work and shared with my tutoring students. My honors thesis was based on these principles, which I am more than happy to teach you or your student.

Writing

Currently I am a professional freelance writer, tutor and coach. I write articles, webpages, social media content and business documents. As a college student I was a writing tutor, tutored in classroom settings, created and led writing workshops. As a Barrett Honors student I researched, created and managed a writing center on ASU's Poly campus (it is still operating to this day). My skills for writing are ever evolving, but my innate ability to help others improve their writing is something I'm passionate about. I have had great success in helping many students (especially ESL students) improve their writing, reading and understanding of the English language.
