About Andrew

While getting my Master's in English at Cal State Long Beach, I tutored at the university's Writer's Resource Lab, working with students one-on-one as well as in the classroom. My main focus as a tutor is to not only to help with a particular assignment or paper, but to help the student improve as a writer. I believe that becoming a more effective writer not only helps you while you're in school, but also improves communication skills that aid you in your personal and professional life.

I have tutored at Cal State Long Beach, Santa Ana High School, and El Camino College. At all three locations, the students I worked with came from a number of diverse backgrounds and many were English language learners. At Cal State Long Beach, I was trained in particular to help non-native English speakers. I can provide assistance at all skill levels and can easily adjust to any background and skill set. Whether you're looking to improve the paper you're currently working on, or just want to develop skills that will help you when writing future papers, I can be of assistance.

Writing is very important to me and I would love to help you develop as a writer. I truly believe that becoming a better writer helps you become a better communicator, which is something that will continue to benefit you for the rest of your life, long after you've left school.

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.

English

I graduated from UCI with a B.A. degree in English in 2003 and from Cal State Long Beach with an M.A. degree in English in 2009. I have tutored extensively in English and specialize in the following areas: composing and revising effective papers, crafting theses and providing evidence and support, and MLA formatting and citations. I can also help with issues pertaining to sentence style, word choice, grammar, and ESL trouble spots.

If you have an assignment and don't know where to begin, I can help clarify the prompt and aid you in developing ideas. If you already have a paper you're currently working on, I will go through it with you sentence by sentence and help you improve it.

ESL/ESOL

I graduated from UCI with a B.A. degree in English in 2003 and from Cal State Long Beach with an M.A. degree in English in 2009. I have tutored extensively with non-native English speakers and English language learners. I received training at Cal State Long Beach to help identity common ESL trouble spots. If you're working on an English paper, I will read through it with you sentence by sentence and assist you with any questions you have. If you have an assignment and don't know where to begin, I can help with this as well. When working with English language learners, I focus foremost on sentence clarity, but can also help with thesis writing, grammar, word choice, and formatting, among other topics.

Grammar

I graduated from UCI with a B.A. degree in English in 2003 and from Cal State Long Beach with an M.A. degree in English in 2009. I have tutored extensively in English and can provide help with many common grammatical issues, such as subject-verb agreement, sentence fragments, run-on sentences, adjectives and adverbs, and much more. When focusing on grammar, I prefer to read through your paper with you sentence by sentence, help you identify trouble areas, and then work with you to come up with solutions.

Literature

I graduated from UCI with a B.A. degree in English in 2003 and from Cal State Long Beach with an M.A. degree in English in 2009. I have an extensive background in English and American literature and have studied and written about many works from the 18th century to the present. I can provide you with assistance in the areas of theme, meaning, metaphor, historical context, and much more.
