As your tutor, I'll help you identify the areas you most want to improve, and we'll build a plan together to help you achieve those goals. Whether it's bringing up the level of your vocabulary, improving the style and personal voice in your writing, fixing those pesky comma splices, or figuring out what the heck is going on in "Heart of Darkness," I've got your back. In our sessions, I'll help you develop the critical thinking and self-assessment skills that make for success in any field. My goal is to help you see and be able to use language as tool you can put to good use rather than a chore your teachers make you do.
I love being an educator, and with me you'll get both experience and creativity. I enjoy using new technology and teaching tools, and yes, even social media, to get the best results. One of my favorite exercises uses Twitter to have students compose 140-character sentences with impact. Of course, this is all about you--what you want out of your education, and what you want out of our time together. I'm excited for us to get started and to see where we can go.
