About Winnie

I'm very friendly and understanding, and I take responsibilities with a fun attitude as well as dedication to excellence. My strongest subjects reside in the humanities: English, creative writing, literature, world/American/East Asian/European history. I would love to help you fulfill your potential!

I graduated with a English M.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in May 2016. With an advanced degree I've learned how to study and manage my workload, and I can assist you in those areas as well. :)

In Spring 2012 I graduated cum laude on the Chancellor’s List from Chapman University with a BFA in creative writing. During my two years there I presented at the regional and national Sigma Tau Delta English honors society and Honors Program conferences for my creative writing and acted as a category editor in poetry and scriptwriting for the school Honors Journal. Since then I have also been a freelance script coverage writer for The Happy Writers. I am a book reviewer for Nostrovia! Poetry, Necessary Fiction, and Fjords Review.

I have recently begun looking into writing contests and publication; my work is upcoming in Bards and Sages, and featured in Funny in Five Hundred, The Singularity, isPalooka Literary Journal, The Daily Satire anthology, Pirenes Fountain, the Philadelphia Review of Books, Passages North, as well as the Kung Fu Action Theatre podcast. In 2011 I was Chapman University’s Creative Writing Program nominee for Association of Writers Journal in the fiction category and for the New York State Summer Writers Institute Scholarship.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Microsoft Windows

From a consumer point of view, I can effectively navigate Windows 7, 8, and 10. I check tech websites like CNET, PCworld, PCmag, Mobile Tech Review, etc, nearly every day. I often troubleshoot for friends and family, from issues with printer wifi network setup to problems with sound or graphics driver installation. If I cannot figure something out on my own, I can quickly look up the solution--however, if I have a GUI, I can most likely intuit what to do.
