Bio

My family is a family of teachers, so I have a natural tendency to teach and lead. I am friendly, patient, and non-judgmental, which keeps my students comfortable and free to be themselves. I started tutoring as a job in August 2016, and I've only grown since then. I have been trained in a tutoring workshop for a year on the do's and don't's of tutoring, how best to help a writer grow, and how to improve my own standard English skills as well.

My family is a family of teachers, so I have a natural tendency to teach and lead. I am friendly, patient, and non-judgmental, which keeps my students comfortable and free to be themselves. I started tutoring as a job in August 2016, and I've only grown since then. I have been trained in a tutoring workshop for a year on the do's and don't's of tutoring, how best to help a writer grow, and how to improve my own standard English skills as well. I meet one-on-one with my students and go through their paper with them, instead of fixing it for them. I want my students to learn, not just be given grades. I will focus on Higher Order Concerns first, making sure your thesis statement is present, your paper is organized, and that it makes sense to the reader and connects to your thesis throughout. Once the HOCs are out of the way, I go over Lower Order Concerns, which consist of grammar, syntax, punctuation, and other minor things. Although these LOCs actually play a big role in the flow of your paper, it's better to make sure your actual paper is where it should be before getting to the nitty gritty. I am also fully capable of and comfortable with online tutoring, in which my tutoring process is the same as it is in person, but I communicate with my student online instead of face-to-face. I have a broad range of experience tutoring different English essays like rhetorical analysis, literary analysis, poetry explication, research papers, papers in APA format, etc.

I have enjoyed my time as a tutor because it has helped me grow as well. I have always had a natural aptitude with reading and writing, but I was fully aware I still had much to learn, and it is still true. Although I have grown, I do not yet know everything there is to know. I believe in the necessity of human trial and error, and especially of learning from your own past mistakes. I do not think ill of anyone who does not have a perfect paper, because I am not a perfect tutor. But I am always willing to learn, and I am always willing to work alongside my s

Anthropology

I have my Associate's degree in Anthropology and am continuing my studies in university to receive my Master's degree and teach at a university level. I have taken every single class available at my college, and have studied through textbooks and course guides to fully understand the material. Anthropology is my passion and fascination and I strive to educate others on the value of cultural differences and traditions and their importance to individuals and society.
