I have been teaching writing and rhetoric at the college level for over three years, and it's by far one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had. I aim to help my students not only succeed in their academic careers, but also feel comfortable when engaging with texts and composition in their everyday lives. If you engage me as a tutor, I will push you to your full potential!
My specialty is analytical writing, so if you are writing a research paper, an argument paper, or a literary analysis, I'm the tutor for you. I'm able to help you at any point in the writing process, from brainstorming to editing. I won't merely "fix" your paper, but help you to develop strategies to become a better writer and self-editor, so that YOU can eventually see the problems you frequently develop and fix them independently. This means that once you've moved on, you'll still be able to produce effective, A-worthy papers without me.
My academic background is in literary analysis, so if you're struggling with a literature or English class, I can give you the basic tools you need to pick apart fiction and/or poetry and say something interesting about it. This can actually be a fun process, once you've learned how to do it well!
I aim to make rhetoric, reading, and composition relatable to my students. I don't want my classes or my tutoring to be boring or to feel disconnected from your life. I will do my best to make the material interesting and something you can care about. My teaching philosophy is that if you want to learn a skill well, you apply it in all areas of your life. Learning how to write a Facebook post, an email, or a text more effectively can help you in your essay-for-school writing skills! I care about you meeting your goals, whether they are to earn a certain grade in a class, create a convincing argument in an essay, or just become a better writer.
