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.
Crafting a thesis statement, paragraph development, analysis, brainstorming, outlining, using evidence to support your argument, summary and paraphrasing.
Sentence fragments, run-on sentences, FANBOYS, semi-colons, punctuation.
Poetry, Short Fiction, 20th Century American Literature, Multi-ethnic Literature, Women's Literature.
I'll teach you strategies for proofreading your work.
I have presented papers reflecting my literary interests at several academic conferences, including the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association and the American Popular Culture Association. I have also assisted students in outlining and rehearsing speeches for Communication courses. I can help you practice for presentations as well as provide feedback and tips for speaking in front of large and small audiences.
I can work with you through the various phases of writing, start with brainstorms and free-writes to writing a rough draft and polishing your work prior to submission.
