I believe in teaching my students how to write a better essay, rather than just improving individual papers. I want your personal writing technique and style to improve overall. I am really friendly, so I do get tangential sometimes, but you always get your money's worth from me. I enjoy taking the time to get to know my students a little bit, which leads to tangents I mentioned before.
I prefer to work on essays/papers simply because I want to be an editor at a publishing company if I ever grow up, but I'd love to get other tutoring experience. I'm quite knowledgeable about a lot of things having to do with literature, and I just received an A on my senior thesis at UC Merced, which, incidentally, I just graduated from.
I was a writing tutor for two years during my career at UC Merced, and I received my CRLA tutor certification. I helped a lot of students receive a lot better grades on their papers. I'm really good with noticing where you could say more and what seems irrelevant. But most of all, I want to help you see where you are making choices that are keeping you from getting that A+. Anyone is capable of getting A's, they just need to open their eyes.
