I recently graduated with a BA in English and Latin. I minored in creative writing. When I wasn't studying Margaret Atwood or Cicero, I took education classes, including a pedagogy course and a course specifically on tutoring. I also took courses on technical editing and English grammar.
My experience as a tutor is extensive. I worked in my university's writing center for two years, assisting undergraduate students with their writing assignments and teaching outlining, writing, and editing techniques. Many of the students who came to the writing center struggled with confidence as well as writing proficiency. Although they usually brought a specific assignment to work on, I always tried to teach them skills they could apply to future assignments as well. My goal was to make better writers, not just better writing.
I have also privately tutored students for the last four years. These students range from high school freshmen to adults returning to college after focusing on their careers for many years. I've helped them with Latin, SAT prep, English, and creative writing. I love teaching, and I am committed to helping my students learn.
