Hello, everyone!

My name is Devin, and I have been a writer since I was old enough to pick up a pen. My interest in words eventually led me to jobs as a newspaper reporter, which I held for about four and a half years. I wrote breaking news and features stories for both a daily and weekly newspaper, but my desire to incorporate my passion for working with kids into that led me to WyzAnt. I have been a camp counselor, assistant teacher at a school for Hmong students and, most recently, a tutor in various subjects at a non-profit writing center in Chicago.

I love working with kids because of their curiosity for life, and I really enjoy encouraging that through learning. I think it's key to be able to build trusting and respectful relationships between students and educators because that is how the student can thrive the most. I've always tried to do that in my experiences with kids.

I'm available for tutoring writing, from elementary assignments to college essays. I can help out with grammar, spelling, or even just brainstorming topics for any assignment. I am also comfortable offering reading or elementary math help.
