About Adam

Hello,

My name is Adam, and I am an English and Spanish tutor. I have bachelors degrees from Auburn University in English Literature and Spanish. I also have some editing experience, mostly since graduating, which is particularly useful if you need help with essays, research papers, or creative writing. I have found I am most effective at helping students think critically and creatively. I love helping people, and seek to give positive instruction, advice, and encouragement to all students in any subject.


I look forward to working with you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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

While I was a student at Auburn, I tutored multiple university students in English, and since graduating I have tutored more students in the ACT. English is one of my strongest subjects. On the ACT, I scored a 34 on the the English section.

English

I studied English at Auburn University and graduated summa cum laude.

Literature

I have a BA in English lit from Auburn University, 2012.

Spanish

I have a bachelor's degree in Spanish from Auburn University, where I became proficient in Spanish. Through my education and extra-curricular activities including a semester abroad in Spain and different work experiences, I attained fluency in Spanish. Since then I have tutored students of different ages in Spanish.

Writing

At Auburn University, I continued to pursue my love for English and writing by majoring in English Literature. This gave me many opportunities to build and refine my skills in research and paper writing. It also required required deep critical thinking in order to analyze literature and then make rational and relevant arguments that brought together past and present. Starting my senior year at Auburn and continuing to the present, I have tutored students in English or writing. I would be happy to help you or someone you know with whatever needs you have related to English or writing.
