Hi, I'm Ten, and thanks for visiting my page! As we deduced together from the capitalized letter 't' in the previous sentence, that would make 'Ten' a proper noun- my name here- and so fortunately I can introduce myself as a 22 year old recent graduate from UCSB holding a degree in English.

Hi, I'm Ten, and thanks for visiting my page! As we deduced together from the capitalized letter 't' in the previous sentence, that would make 'Ten' a proper noun- my name here- and so fortunately I can introduce myself as a 22 year old recent graduate from UCSB holding a degree in English. There I learned that one of the most essential keys to success in any literary environment is perspective- listening to lectures and comparing with your own notes, though a fantastic way to learn, will only get you so far. A stimulating discussion is where the seeds of ideas for your A+ paper are sown. With perspective, you can find validity from what you might even deem the most nonsensical. As some literary great once didn’t say, “literature is like a metaphor about puzzles. It’s half metaphors. And the metaphors must be carefully fitted together, like a-” and as we get the point, yes, it’s turtles all the way down, ho hum, literature can be difficult, there are reasons we analyze bits of media from decades; centuries; millennia ago.

My students’ core understanding and mastery of the material is at the forefront of my objectives as a tutor. If this means showing a tutor’s trademark level of patience I'll have no issue doing so; their pace will become their stride and we will find both. This way we’ll make molehills of mountains. Both in the studies we breeze through and slow goings I’ll do my best to keep the material fresh- learning should feel rewarding, and it’s done best when it is! This will be a safe and immersive learning environment. All are welcome!

My goal is to consistently provide all that I can for the student and to help them take as much as possible from every lesson. I will be glad and very grateful for any resources or recommendations anyone would like to provide. Please do not hesitate to send me a message otherwise for any questions or to schedule a lesson!
