Tony W. was a great tutor that helped me not only for this paper, but for future growth as well in my writing skills. He helped me realize a lot of simple mistakes in my writing style, that would cloud and confuse my creative ideas. Tony was friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him.
So we worked over email, and did track changes on my paper about the media's role in Voodoo's perception in New Orleans during the slave trade. He cleared up the paper and helped a lot with my grammar and sentence variations. And he was real cool over email, I recommend him.
Tony helped me write a paper on post-colonialism's effect on African economy. He helped my structure the paper and get my transitions where they needed to be and got rid of passive voice and a lot of my "to be" verbs. Paper is exactly where I wanted it to be right now.
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.
I am currently a rising junior at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I was the assistant second grade teacher to the class of Temple Sholom in Chicago. I helped the fourth and fifth graders with their homework at Latin School of Chicago during an after-school program. I am set to teach creative writing to K-5th graders at Anderson Livesly Elementary school in Atlanta, GA in the fall of 2013.
I took improvisation for two years in high school. Since then, I have performed stand-up comedy in Atlanta and Chicago, to audiences of more than 50 people at a time. I have also performed at readings at Emory University for fiction and nonfiction. In high school, I completed a capstone project in screenwriting, and presented my capstone to the 9-12th grade class of The Latin School of Chicago during my senior year.
