If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I can coach you through the entire writing process - from research to outlining to composition to citation. I adapt my methods to your learning style. For example, if we're building an outline and you're a hands-on learner, we might create an outline with paper, scissors, and tape.

I am also a firm believer in revision. Sometimes writers don't realize what their arguments are until the end of the first draft. Making a few rearrangements and edits can make all the difference in a paper.

I have a B.A. in English literature and creative writing, as well as an M.S. in Library and Information Science. I worked for two years as a writing center tutor at Agnes Scott College, and I have been a college reference and instruction librarian for 8 years. These experiences have made me very familiar with the needs of students and a variety of teaching methods.

I look forward to working with you!
