I'm currently a writing tutor focusing on ESL students. I have a background in Spanish and ASL too. First year graduate student in Chicago. I hope to begin teaching when I graduate in May 2015. I feel that my strong areas in writing assistance are in the beginning stages of the writing process, because I come from a creative background. Being an artist on the side, I have a talent with unearthing those wonderful things we want to write about when the proverbial writer's block does not allow it. That being said, I am trained in all other aspects of the writing process.

My weakness would be that I don't have every APA/MLA, what have you, memorized, so I tend to consult the "oracle" (the writing manuals) on a regular basis. My undergrad was Anthropology, so I consider this eclectic background makes me a suitable tutor for many different subjects as well.

Anthropology

My undergraduate degree was in Anthropology. I am proficient in all four disciplines: linguistics, cultural, biological, and archaeological. My transcripts will reflect a focus on osteology and dentition, as well as many languages.

Archaeology

My undergraduate degree was in Anthropology, and archaeology is a sub discipline of this field. My transcripts will illustrate that I have taken, and excelled in, a general archaeology course as well as Prehistory of Africa. I also spent a summer working as an intern for the Field Museum, Chicago conducting archaeological illustration. Between my applied skills at the Field Museum and my university coursework, I am more than qualified to mentor/tutor those interested in the field of archaeology.

Drawing

I have an Associate's degree in Illustration. I also was an archaeological illustrator for the Field Museum through a summer internship. I have some of my drawing on You Tube if you feel the need to check some of those drawings out.

English

English is my native language and I have spent over 6 years writing in Academic English. Currently working towards a graduate degree in English as a Second/Foreign Language.

Hard Of Hearing

I have taken two courses of ASL in my Undergrad and continue to work with deaf individuals. My signing is proficient enough to establish rapport and communicate effectively, but I do resort to fingerspelling regularly. I am interested in this, because it also provides a great opportunity to practice my ASL.
