Bio

I am a recent Honors graduate from Alfred University, a small liberal arts school in upstate New York. I studied English (Creative Writing focus) with a minor in Political Science. In college, I was the Editor-In-Chief of the school newspaper and a Writing Center tutor. At Alfred, I won a number of writing and public speaking awards that represent my dedication to the craft.

I am a recent Honors graduate from Alfred University, a small liberal arts school in upstate New York. I studied English (Creative Writing focus) with a minor in Political Science. In college, I was the Editor-In-Chief of the school newspaper and a Writing Center tutor. At Alfred, I won a number of writing and public speaking awards that represent my dedication to the craft. In the summer of 2013, I interned at The Stamford Times in Connecticut and I was a part-time copy editor for a video game magazine. I have a great deal of experience writing and editing, and my approach centers around helping the student become a better writer, rather than just trying to boost their essay grade. I can help with all elements of the craft, whether it's grammar/punctuation, thesis, citation format, organization, and so on. I can also help with proofreading and creative pieces.

Most of all, I do my best to make sure the student enjoys the writing process. It's one of the most important skills you to develop in your education, so why not try to have fun with it?

Knowledgeable and reassuring tutor

Dylan is so knowledgeable in the English language and other topics, yet he always passes on the process of learning as well as the skills so that his students become really learned in the topic and understand the steps necessary to write and organize a thesis paper - thanks as always Dylan!
