I believe that I could be of help to any student who a) wants to improve his or her ability to write academic essays or is looking for help with English grammar, b) is struggling with elementary/advanced Spanish or elementary French or who would like to learn the vocab and grammar relevant to whichever subject area, c) would like assistance in the reading comprehension and analysis of high school or college level literature or d) is looking for help with a Philosophy course.
As a writing tutor in undergraduate school, I discussed and revised tons of peer essays by addressing the grammatical, structural, and contextual aspects of different kinds of essays and styles of writing, and many of the students with whom I worked spoke English as a second language. I have developed comprehension of the grammar concepts learned in elementary to advanced Spanish and elementary French through the study of the languages of French, Spanish, and Ancient Greek in high school and college. For my undergrad degree, I triple majored in Philosophy, Creative Writing, and Foreign Language/Spanish and studied English Literature as well as literature written in the Spanish language.
I would like to tutor because I am looking for work and am interested in a career in teaching.
