My name is Orion P. (O-ryan), and I am a professional freelance writer and a hobby artist. I specialize in general editing and creative, academic, and journalistic writing, including feature articles, profiles, reviews, research essays, and fiction. I also specialize in character design and creation, coloring and limited photo editing in Adobe Photoshop, and some 3D work in Sculptris. I possess a B.A. in English and a minor in Creative Writing from San Jose State University (graduated Fall 2012), and accumulated drawing and coloring experience from four years of an animation class from high school and three semesters of undergraduate art classes (including a class in beginning animation/illustration) from SJSU. I currently have 13 publications under my belt, including two articles in the Evergreen Times, two articles in the Almaden Times, and two articles in SJSU publications, as well as editorial experience in two SJSU publications including the internationally-acclaimed literary journal, REED MAGAZINE.
I offer to any willing student seasoned essay-writing and research skills accumulated from four and a half years studying at SJSU, including two years in an intensive Humanities Honors program. But don't let my accolades discourage you: I am very personable and easy-going. My goal is to make a better and more conscientious writer out of any student, or to assist any beginning artist with useful exercises and tips. I have very little tutoring experience outside of occasional peer tutoring and assisting fellow writers through the editorial process. Being an Eagle Scout, though, I live by the Boy Scout motto of doing my best in every endeavor or challenge that comes my way, and I will dedicate myself to ensuring that every student I tutor learns, understands, and is able to apply the knowledge I pass onto him or her. My tutoring skills are best applied with students in high school or undergraduate college, but I can adapt my methods and material for children no younger than junior high school age (ages 12-14). If you're in need of writing, proofreading, English & grammar, and artistic assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me.
