About Elizabeth


Bio

I have not professionally tutored before, but I was always that person in high school and college who others would come to for help with editing their essays or checking their spelling/grammar. I've always found tremendous satisfaction in helping them understand why this comma goes there or why that word choice might be better. I've always been a naturally gifted writer; even in first grade, my teacher would put my work up on the bulletin board with a gold star and tell others to write like...

I have not professionally tutored before, but I was always that person in high school and college who others would come to for help with editing their essays or checking their spelling/grammar. I've always found tremendous satisfaction in helping them understand why this comma goes there or why that word choice might be better. I've always been a naturally gifted writer; even in first grade, my teacher would put my work up on the bulletin board with a gold star and tell others to write like me. Not a great way to be popular, but it has always served me well academically. I've won spelling bees and essays contests, and in college I was chosen to receive a journalism scholarship out of hundreds of applicants. What a great honor that was!

I've used my skills professionally as a copywriter and a blogger, and I'm always happy to furnish samples of my work. I was honored to be a full-time staff writer on the Tampa Bay Times for two years, and have freelanced for several publications since. I currently work as a freelance storyteller for the award-winning memoir service, Story Terrace.

Finally, my various jobs have taught me the value of people skills, and 5 years in the USF marching band turned me into a confident, outgoing and friendly person with a kind heart, who wants to see others succeed. I believe my outgoing personality combined with my natural skills and love for the written word will make me an excellent tutor. Only one way to find out!

Photography

Photography is a huge passion of mine that I developed in college. I spent five summers perfecting the art of marine mammal photography and have a large gallery of that. I've also worked professionally as a photographer for 4 weddings, a baby shower, one pre-wedding barbeque and a few family photo shoots.

Public Speaking

I was very successful in public speaking courses in college. I also honed my skills for four summers as a naturalist on a whale-watching boat, educating up to 80 guests about the wildlife and surrounding area during 3-hour tours. I'm very confident in my public speaking experience.

Macintosh

I have owned a Mac for almost a decade and find the user interface much friendlier and more intuitive than that of a PC, although I am still quite proficient at using PCs as well since most of my workplaces have required one. I've used my Mac for school, personal use and professional use.
Microsoft Windows,

Microsoft Windows

I have been using Microsoft Windows since I was old enough to use a computer, about 18 years. I have used almost every version and it's as easy as breathing for me. Word in particular is one program I have advanced proficiency on, as well as Outlook. I have used Windows for school, professional and personal use.
