My interest in working as an academic tutor began after earning an A grade on the first expository essay I wrote as a college freshman. Over ten years later, I submitted an economic research report as a continuing education student. That report reawakened my proclivity for academic prose. From that point on, I pursued all writing roles either as the mentor or as the author. My first tutoring responsibility materialized in the fall of 2009 when I accepted an assignment to tutor freshman English courses. Needless to say, the tutoring sessions became a productive and valuable educational experience.
It is gratifying to meet a student who does not understand the essay requirement and has other equally important and urgent subjects to master, and then leave enlightened and empowered one hour later. I have worked with students who arrive with the task, a weak draft and a deadline; then, leave with a fresh new outlook and a well defined course of direction. The end result is a new educational perspective and an eagerness to return to the writing center they once eluded, whether the next day or years later. This is the episode I encounter hour after hour and day after day. Every student brings a new dilemma that has to be evaluated, restructured and refocused. It is rewarding to be the source of a life changing event.
My long term personal goal has been to educate individuals on academic prose, formal argument and research protocol. I believe that the motivated, broadminded and agile university population is the optimal audience for a writing enthusiast such as I, and that alone has served as my guiding principle. I worked in Princeton for several years after graduating from college and, as such, I would not hesitate to further my commitment as a writing center tutor. I have been a member of four major research organizations and I feel qualified to mentor university students, given the prospect.
I have successfully tutored a foreign student on a private school entrance exam. Both sections of reading and writing were covered and mastered in areas of comprehension and composition. The instruction involved weekly communication with the school teacher to coordinate classroom assignments.
I designed and implemented financial reporting software in MS Access while working for CitiGroup in Warren, NJ from January 2009 through April 2009. I developed the tables, queries and forms to display company assets by user-selected time periods. The software routine required substantial conversion of data stored in Excel spreadsheets.
I have instructional experience in Expository Writing and Research Writing since 2009. My role is to provide essential study skills so that students can boost their classroom performance. I also mentor high school students for college entrance exams by optimizing organizational and reasoning skills. I have trained students on SAT subject proficiency testing in English Literature and summer reading lists for grade level promotion.
A 100% Score — I received a 100% score on my last paper. My professor complimented that she had seen great improvement in my writing since the beginning of the quarter. That was because I engaged Luis as my writing tutor. Thank you, Luis! ...
