I have always loved English and all aspects of writing. I have a bachelors degree from EMU with a concentration in Journalism. I volunteered as a writing fellow at Monroe County Community College for a year before transferring to EMU. My areas of expertise includes essays, research papers, creative writing, and journalistic writing. As a writing fellow I helped students determine how to organize their paper and what revisions needed to be made. I'm a strong believer in allowing the student to read his or her paper aloud and discuss what they want to say. Simply allowing the student's authentic voice to come through is a major achievement.

I can also assist in helping a student organize/research a research paper. As a writing fellow I was responsible for learning everything there is to know about research. As your tutor I would help you break down the research process into manageable steps and understand how to use the material you find. I've found many students feel overwhelmed and unsure of their abilities. Let me help you overcome the initial fear!

I'm also deeply in love with all aspects of literature. I have written several research papers about literature and know how to read literary criticism.

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 strength is revision. English is a great language. The challenge for any writer is to take their words and polish them.

Writing

Writing is my strong suit. I can help you make a essay more succinct, to the point, and clear. The first draft is a great place to start. From the first draft, the writer can decide what points he wants to emphasize or build up, what he wants to lose, and how excess words can be trimmed.

I once read that writers can only call themselves writers if they write every day. And, at once, my inner child started protesting. Most of it was immature and childish babble about how I didn't WANT to write every day. And I was too BUSY to make that kind of commitment. And, then of course I realized without commitment dreams stayed just that; dreams. Nobody creates anything without action... read more
