About Taylin

Hello! My name is Taylin. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree from Arizona State University summa cum laude in May 2015 in English Literature. I was a teacher's assistant for English 101/102 online through ASU from August 2014 to May 2015. I had to take a 4 month-long class prior to teaching and assisting in these courses, where I learned how to utilize the different platform tools, as well as multiple teaching philosophies and burgeoning methods in the field of online teaching. The experience of teaching and tutoring itself was a fruitful experience, and helped me understand academia from new perspectives; especially being a student once myself.

Bachelor's Degree from ASU in English Literature, Summa Cum Laude, GPA 3.85
Achieved the Dean's List 4 Consecutive Years
European Studies Diploma from the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania
People to People Student Ambassador, May 2009

I have always loved reading and writing, and found this love channeled expertly through my college experience. I excel at 18th century studies, British literature, Romanticism, the Enlightenment, and Victorian lit, but am also keen on vocab and grammar skills. I can aid in study for the reading/writing GRE, or the GRE English Lit subject test. Though my expertise lies in college level English, I am also willing to tutor in basic reading and vocabulary studies.

I believe that tutoring and teaching should be a communication-based experience between both student and mentor, and so I encourage students to contact me at any time with questions or concerns about the material.
