I have a little over five (5) years of experience as a Peer Writing Consultant (a fancy way of saying "Writing tutor") at Purdue University Calumet, and am a published author in the realm of teaching popular culture. Regarding my tutoring experience, I have assisted students, professors, and other members of the university community (alums, etc.) at every stage of the writing process both in-person and online. I have been trained to assist students from the very beginning of a call to write--from understanding the assignment to outlining--to coming up with a thesis statement, organization, editing for clarity and relevance, and finally editing for grammatical correctness. I also gave presentations on APA and MLA bibliographic formatting, as well as conducting research for sources that would strengthen their papers.

Further, I have a Master's Degree in Library and Information Sciences, which provides me with the ability to further assist students in conducting research. So not only can I help people with all types of writing and at every stage of the writing process, I can also help with locating relevant sources and how to cite those sources according to Chicago, MLA, and APA bibliographic formats! Finally, I also have much experience with creative writing, and have won numerous awards for writing--both academic and creative--from the Purdue University Calumet Stark-Tinkham Writing Contest.

As I said, I can do all of this either in-person or online (asynchronously); whichever works best for you. Any more information you'd like to know, feel free to ask!

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

My qualifications for english include a Bachelor's degree in English (Professional Writing) and experience in student teaching both middle and high school. I also have ca. five years of experience in tutoring college students throughout the writing process and successfully completed a graduate-level linguistics course. I have been published in the field of teaching popular culture, and have had scholarly and academic works win various awards from the Purdue University Calumet Stark-Tinkham Writing Contest.

Grammar

I have a Bachelor's degree in English (Professional Writing) from Purdue University Calumet, one of the requirements for which was passing a course on modern English Grammar (practical and theoretical). Also, in my experiences as a writing tutor at Purdue University Calumet, I assisted many native English-speaking and ESOL students with proper use of English grammar and punctuation.

Literature

In working toward my undergraduate degree in English at Purdue University Calumet, I was required to successfully complete a number of literature courses (which I did). I also have a Master's degree in Library and Information Sciences, for which I was also required to take a course or two regarding age and audience appropriate literature in libraries. Finally, I had originally sought a degree in Secondary English Education, for which I also successfully completed a large number of literature courses ranging from early american to modern European.

Proofreading

I have a Bachelor's degree in English (Professional Writing) from Purdue University Calumet, one of the requirements for which was successfully completing an internship. I served my internship at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, IL, in their editorial department, where I fact-checked information and proofread all their publications for grammatical correctness (punctuation, subject-verb agreement, etc.). Further, for my undergraduate degree, I was required to pass a course on modern English Grammar (practical and theoretical). Also, in my five-year experiences as a writing tutor at Purdue University Calumet, I assisted students with proofreading for grammar and clarity.

Reading

In fifth grade, my English/reading teacher recognized that I was bored in class because I wasn't being challenged; she then cooked up an advanced reading and writing curriculum for me and I haven't looked back since. I excel in reading comprehension and as a result of my undergraduate education in English professional writing, I am familiar with and well-read in all types of literature as well as literary tropes and theories. In my previous tutoring experience, I have helped a great number of students from other countries with reading comprehension. Finally, in my studies for my Master's degree in Library and Information Sciences, I became familiar with ways to run programs that would facilitate in children's and young adult reading comprehension.

Vocabulary

I've been a voracious reader since I was about five years old, and between the books I have read for recreational purposes and everything I have had to read throughout my 19 years of school since, I have come across thousands, if not millions, of words. Those I did not know the definition of, I looked up or used contextual clues to deduce their meaning. Further, in my five or so previous years of tutoring experience, I have worked with students for whom English was their second (or third) language, necessitating that I not only be able to define a number of words for them, but also help them learn new words.

Writing

I have a Bachelor's degree in English (Professional Writing) from Purdue University Calumet, one of the requirements for which was successfully completing an internship. I served my internship at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, IL, in their editorial department, where I not only proofread all of their publications for grammar and clarity, but also did some copy writing for them. I also successfully completed a guided writing course and have composed a number of scholarly and creative writings which won high awards from the Purdue University Calumet Stark-Tinkham Writing Contest.
