My undergraduate education is from Northwestern University where I majored in English Literature. I have a masters degree in Public Administration from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Writing has been a necessity for me in my academic and professional life. I don't believe that it is enough to just correct spelling and grammar but to help students learn how to think critically about a subject and write about it intelligently. Anyone can learn the basics of spelling and grammar but learning to write an effective essay makes the difference between an adequate student and a good student.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have a BA degree in English Literature from Northwestern University and have spent most of my professional life writing. I have experience tutoring adults in junior college from time spent working at Malcolm X College in Chicago.
