My name is Missy. I'm a recent graduate of the University of Washington with my bachelor's degree in writing with a creative writing emphasis. I have had a healthy love of reading and reading since I was a child, and I'd love to help anyone foster that same love of reading. I'm very patient and genuinely excited about helping students improve their reading comprehension and writing skills - I have spent several years as editor of two newspapers and a magazine, and have developed a number of useful skills in reading, writing, editing, and discussing how others can improve their own skills.

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ACT English

I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's in English from the University of Washington with a cumulative GPA of 3.84. I spent two years as editor of a literary journal and one year as editor of a college newspaper. I'm comfortable with writing of all kinds (fiction, non-fiction, essay writing, journalism, etcetera). I scored a 5 on my AP English exam and tested in the 98th percentile of the reading and writing sections of the ACT.
