Hello, my name is Kara, a 24-year old former student from Cornell University. I received my Bachelor of Arts in 2010 in English Literature, and also minored in Italian Studies. I graduated with a GPA of 3.70 / 4 and made Dean’s list for most of my semesters there.
My goal with every student is to help each go beyond his/her idea of personal potential in terms of fluency, clarity, organization, analysis and argument building. I encourage every writer to focus more on developing his/her strengths, and through this growth, learn to avoid bad habits and weak writing.
From 2008-2010 I was a writing tutor with the John S. Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines at Cornell University. I actively attended all sessions of a research-oriented writing seminar and tutored three individual students from the class on a bi-weekly basis. Throughout the course of the semester, I helped each student from brainstorming to research methods, thesis building, organization, drafting, revising and the final, finished product.
Throughout my time in college I also tutored local Ithaca High School students in various subjects, such as History, Math and English. We spent our time on specific homework assignments and understanding methods, content and how to prepare for future exams.
