About Tristan


Bio

Hello! I am currently a student at FAU, entering my senior year this fall. I am just getting started as a tutor but I have continually found myself assisting other students with their work so it only seemed natural that I transition to a tutoring role. Because I've been asked by my peers to edit their essays I feel comfortable tutoring students who are also in college, including even other English majors.

Hello! I am currently a student at FAU, entering my senior year this fall. I am just getting started as a tutor but I have continually found myself assisting other students with their work so it only seemed natural that I transition to a tutoring role. Because I've been asked by my peers to edit their essays I feel comfortable tutoring students who are also in college, including even other English majors.

I am in FAU's English Honors program, with a 3.9 GPA overall and a 4.0 GPA at FAU after transferring from PBSC. I am very passionate about academics and am planning to get a Master’s degree, maybe continuing on to do more schooling after that. I’m not sure if I want to be a professor but I do want to stay in academia somehow. However I do recognize that this enthusiasm is not shared by everyone and a lack of it may in fact be part of why one feels they should seek English tutoring — and I am prepared to meet students where they are at and offer practical feedback for those who do not consider themselves to be avid readers/writers.

My focus is on academic writing, not creative writing. On Wyzant's platform I've assisted mainly with essays but I can turn my attention to anything involving a writing and editing process. I also have experience tutoring reading comprehension for younger students and close reading for older students, or for whoever may struggle with it. Within my major I also have a concentration in Multicultural and Gender Studies as well as a Film Minor, and so am able to provide an interdisciplinary approach to students if relevant.

Note: I begin my fall semester on August 25th and will have limited availability at that time. If you are seeking a regular, long term tutor for the fall, I thank you for your interest but suggest that you look somewhere else.

ADHD

I have struggled with ADHD throughout my life, mostly managing and dealing with it on my own after being unresponsive to medication and unhelped by professionals. Due to this most of my knowledge of ADHD and particularly how it manifests in myself is from my own research into the subject and my conversations with friends who also have ADHD. I believe that there is much misunderstanding around ADHD as it is often reduced to a matter of attention span, instead of being a neurodevelopmental disorder like autism. People with ADHD can only improve if we are given the knowledge that really addresses how our brains uniquely function and techniques that work with that uniqueness.

An English Major Who Knows Her Stuff

Tristan is an English Tutor who really knew her stuff. She answered almost all of the questions I had and only struggled with one or two questions from the 90+ questions I had

Ani, 1 lesson with Tristan

Knowledgeable teacher and she worked well with my son

Tristan helped my 8th grade son on his ELA project and finish it on time. She encouraged him to think independently, helped him writing coherently and followed through with details. I recommend her to anyone who needs help with writing! We will work with her again. Great job! Tristan.
