I have been tutoring, mostly English
, formally and informally since I was in high school. Ten years later I still derive satisfaction from helping students work through problems and become strong, self-sufficient learners. Creative writing
as well as academic writing are passions I still hold despite a career focused in public health and nutrition
. I especially enjoy working with international students and students with learning disabilities. I have worked with various age groups, from grade school
levels k-12, university-aged students and adult learners and found each age group rewarding and fun to work with. Below is a list of my various tutoring experiences but I am also glad to give out a full resume, CV, and references!
More about my skills:
I worked for four years as a peer writing tutor and coordinator at the Penn State University Writing Center and worked with students of many different skill levels on a variety of assignments. These ranged from essays, research papers, proposals, and final projects at all college and graduate levels.
I recently completed a Masters Thesis in the field of public health at Emory University and would be happy to help with improving and formatting theses or dissertations.
I also have experience with tutoring in areas of professional development and job searching. I have helped students to improve resumes, cover letters, personal statements and other documents for graduate programs and fellowships.
During my undergraduate years I also worked as an English tutor for engineering students so I am familiar with working with those who feel they are naturally bad at writing.
Much of my tutoring career has been working with children as well. I was an Assistant Teacher of English in an ESL
summer camp for middle school students and have taught elementary level English for a small non-profit in Ghana, West Africa. I love working with second language
learners! I have also worked with children with ADD/ADHD
through these experiences and as a research assistant for the Child Brain Development Lab.
I have a health and social sciences background so I am willing to help with basic science
assignments. I also have taken several statistics
courses over the years and would love to grow my skills in tutoring in this area.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask me anything! I look forward to working with you.
