I am a very organized individual with a passion for writing. I am a graduate of Liberty University's criminal justice and psychology bachelor's degree programs. Because of the nature of my degree studies, I have been instructed in a great deal of written assignments. I have become highly proficient in APA formatting, as well as the basics of MLA and Turabian. I have also become very proficient in research projects, book reviews, and proposal organization.
Over the past two years I have been tutoring home-schooled high school students in APA formatting and basic English for written assignments and have been very successful. One student's GPA went from an F to a B in History after my tutoring for the written assignments. I believe that every student can learn how to channel their voice into the written word. Many people write in the same manner that they speak, which leads to unorganized thoughts and improper structure. Although this is common, many people, with the proper tutoring, can learn to formulate organized, cohesive thoughts and turn them into an outstanding document.
I have no problem adjusting to various topics, even controversial topics. I have made it a point in my studies to be varied in my research and to utilize many different avenues for information. I have also made a point to conduct personal interviews when applicable to obtain the most pertinent information possible. This is a great way to conduct research for academic writing and is an easy solution to writers block, as conversation often promotes ideas. Writing is not a topic to be feared. Many people feel overwhelmed by writing assignments, but I encourage my students to take an approach that causes them to find interest in the topic and to develop a better understanding of the way in which the topic can relate to other, perhaps more interesting, topics. It is vital in teaching and tutoring to keep the students attention on the assignment. This statement is true of grade school, high school, college, and beyond.
