Hi prospective tutoring clients!
I have been an academic reading
tutor for undergraduate and graduate students for over six years at the Hunter College Reading/Writing Center. I also have been teaching composition to undergraduate students for the past four years at Hunter College. As a college instructor, my focus has been on teaching expository writing to a very diverse student body. I have taught introductory level freshmen composition courses and intermediate level writing courses, which both focus on the revision, drafting, and peer editing
processes. My extensive experience as an academic tutor has equipped me with the skills to help instruct a wide variety of students from different linguistic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
In addition to tutoring and mentoring newly hired tutors at the Reading/Writing Center, I tutor privately. I have worked with high school students on writing, time management
, study skills
, and test preparation
, in addition to working with graduate students, in various disciplines, on lesson plans, research papers, citation (MLA, APA, Chicago, and AMA), and master's theses. I am very comfortable working with students of all ages; students who I have worked with in the past would be happy to provide references upon request.
I possess strong verbal and written communication skills, and I am confident that my interpersonal skills are very well developed. I strive to make students feel comfortable in the tutoring environment, and I truly believe that I, as a tutor, can grow from a successful tutor/student partnership as much as the student.
In addition to my teaching and tutoring experience, this past spring, I recently completed my master’s in British and American literature
at Hunter College, where I focused, jointly, on the fields of linguistics and Victorian literature.
I attended Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College for my undergraduate degree; there, I received my bachelor's in English
. My concentration was literature and theory, but I also took several creative writing classes and minored in anthropological linguistics. I graduated magna cum laude from Macaulay Honors College and was selected to be a member of Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Throughout my high school, undergraduate, and graduate schooling, I have always taken time management and studying very seriously. I am confident that I would bring the same dedication, success, work ethic, and positivity to any tutoring relationship that I form with you (or your child).
Please feel free to browse my profile to see the subject areas that I am approved to tutor through WyzAnt. Check back frequently, because I plan on taking more tests and submitting more materials to become approved in various disciplines. My main areas are literature, writing (ACT
even!), and English language
instruction (with an emphasis on grammar
-- I am a grammar nerd!), but I also have a passion for American history
, so you can see that I am also qualified to tutor that subject as well. I hope to hear from you soon!
