My goal in tutoring, quite simply, is to assist in areas that are needed. My professional experience has been majorly creative writing, but I have been classically trained in Literature, research, grammar, and most other English studies. My writing and English backgrounds are different from most. In English I have solid backgrounds in classic English, Education, Writing, Communication and professional development. I have studied and became professionally affiliated with each of these four main English categories. I Also took classes towards a teaching certificate. My education background is in teaching beginners English, and child development. There are a lot of people struggling, and i believed that was my calling. I completed my observation hours in a ‘repeaters’ class, because that is where the most help is needed. My professional development has been predominantly creative writing and journalism, but like I mentioned I have also received a education in Classic English and Literature. I am proficient in most writing styles: MLA, APA, Chicago, AP, and creative. I am talented in a myriad of creative writing styles: poetry, fiction, non-fiction, drama, and LC, as well as many sub groups of the five. You will not find anyone else on this sight with my unique mix of these types of English and the writing associated with each. It has always been my belief that one can not become proficient in one type of English while ignoring others. For these reasons I believe I will make a great tutor for you.
Learning disabilities are a huge issue, and need to be addressed. But sadly a lot of school systems can not address special needs children the way they do their honor, or accelerated students. I have an extensive background with children that have special needs, both tutoring and through volunteer work. Having a brother with special needs I understand the patience, and tolerance a good teacher needs. For the past eight years I have demonstrated excellent skills dealing and communicating with special needs children through my extensive work with the Miss You Can Do It Pageant as seen on HBO.
Now a little bit about myself professionally: I have been published over thirty times in the last thirteen months. Of the thirty publications; seven were published by various universities, eleven by a newspaper, and one essay on the shelves of most bookstores. I can provide writing samples, and a resume, available upon request.
