Hi there, my name is Lindsey and I recently completed my M.A. in Literature at SFSU. I have significant experience as a Writing tutor. I can help you with any and all of your writing assignments!

About me: My simultaneous passion for the written word and desire to help people improve their writing skills has translated into several opportunities to interact with students in the classroom. I've held a wide range of teaching/tutoring positions over the last few years. As a graduate student, I've worked as an Reading/Writing/Study Skills Tutor, an Instructional Student Assistant, a Writing Coach, as as well as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. In addition to teaching, I've also worked as a Content Editor and Copy Editor.
