I am a former instructor/professor at UCSD, and I spent four years during that time teaching for one of the college writing
programs. I studied and lectured in the social sciences, and can assist in a variety of social studies
courses. In addition, I have strong training in statistics
and quantitative research methods, and worked closely with students in college-level statistics and research methods courses at UCSD. I specialize in writing, social studies, political science
/civics, and introductory statistics courses. I am able to assist students at the college level, applicants to graduate school, as well as high school students in their third and fourth years.
In terms of my ability to tutor students in writing and English
courses, I have extensive experience in helping students improve their writing and research skills, have graded numerous college-level papers and essays, and have also assisted in the book publishing process. I can help with essay
content, ideas for essay subjects, and check and improve grammar
and structure. I can provide thorough instruction in writing research papers and coaching students through the research process.
I also have experience helping students who have writing anxiety or just need a push to get started. I am able to provide assistance in writing for individual subject areas as well: English literature
, social sciences, and history.
Outside of writing, I am experienced in teaching and helping students better understand and improve their coursework in a wide range of subjects: world history
, American history
, research methods, statistics, and politics/civics.
Finally, I can be extremely helpful when it comes to the college application
process. The application essay can make or break an application, especially for students who do not have top GPAs. I can assist students in ensuring that their essays present them and their abilities in the best light possible.
It gives me great satisfaction to see students finally understand a difficult concept, feel confident about their writing, actually feel as though they are enjoying the writing process, and feel they have the tools they need to succeed in their coursework. I look forward to helping you- or your son or daughter- achieve that same success and improvement.
