I hold an English BA from Metropolitan State University of Denver. I love the English language and its power over the human race. I love helping people articulate their ideas, and I enjoy helping others witness the beauty that can potentially be derived from articulation and pretension. I have tutored many students, ranging from high school to undergraduates.
I have a 95% success rate in terms of helping students reach their specified writing goals. My philosophy: If you believe in yourself and you are able to express such confidence through continuous effort, then anything is possible.
I have ample experience in terms of working with high school students. I've owned my own private tutoring business in the years prior to obtaining an English degree. The majority of my students were enrolled in advanced placement writing and literature courses. Other than helping them reach coursework goals, I would also help students prepare for their AP literature and language exams; most of my students ended up with a solid score of 4.
I have also tutored students at the undergraduate level. During my sophomore year, I obtained a position as a writing tutor in the campus' writing lab. I worked there until the second semester of my senior year. During this time, I worked with students on constructing and organizing arguments, performing close readings and critical analysis on literary works, and I have also helped my students understand the mechanics of rhetorical analysis.
In terms of my own writing, I have worked as a contract writer for many years. I have written thousands of news articles, product descriptions, and company descriptions for various clients, and I stand at a 95% acceptance rating. I look forward to working with you.

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.
