I am currently a senior English major with Honors at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN. I attended high school at St. John's Preparatory School, where I graduated in the Top Ten of the 2011 graduating class. I have experience private tutoring in writing, test prep, and Spanish through WyzAnt and peer tutoring in writing and math in high school through National Honor Society. I have experience helping students develop topics, organize papers, and edit essays, poems, short stories, and newspaper articles. In college, I was paired as a tutor with fellow classmates by my Formal Logic professor, and have gained experience working with friends and classmates to improve their writing ability. I think communication is essential to the tutoring process. I am always looking for participation and feedback from my tutees to ensure they are actively involved in learning the material and realizing how much they really know and are able to contribute to their own education.
