I have extensive experience editing research papers, including high school, undergraduate college, and post-graduate college levels. I also utilize teaching techniques to help students understand the need for certain grammatical rules and techniques. I have edited for many years and have witnessed incredible student success as a result.

In addition, I am fluent in resume writing and resume editing, as well as cover letter editing and interview preparation. With many years of one-on-one career counseling throughout the completion of my Master's Degree, I have advised many students and staff through successful job searches.

I also have a personal passion & niche for literature, particularly classic authors such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jack Kerouac, Oscar Wilde, Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Thoreau, Shakespeare, Hawthorne, etc. I can tutor on the critical analysis of classic works.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

During my Master's program at Northern Arizona University, I was the Residence Hall Director for hundreds of students, as well as the advisor of Hall Council. I advised the full Hall Council group, the Hall Council leadership team, and individual students. I have approximately 4 years of experience editing resumes, cover letters, and having one-on-one interview preparation sessions. I also sat on the interview panel for Graduate Assistants, and have familiarity with different styles of interview questions.

Many of my students were successful in attaining their preferred job after I completed my "interview preparation" session with them.

College Counseling

During my Master's program at Northern Arizona University, I worked with hundreds of students as a Residence Hall Director. I helped, advised, and counseled students with a variety of college preparation issues, including: FAFSA preparation, scholarship essay editing, college applications and admission letters, college resume and cover letter editing, career path advising, personal statements, time management seminars for students (particularly for students balancing work, school, and extracurricular activities). I have advised incoming college freshman through post-graduate students, as well as summer students.
