About Carrie

I have been tutoring writing at the university level for the past couple of years. During this time, I gained experience working with a wide range of ability levels, ranging from non-native speaker students to native English speakers with strong command of the language who just need help with final editing and minor grammatical errors. I've also had the opportunity to work on graduate and Ph.D. level papers, as well as co-authoring a journal paper being presented at an international symposium. As a rising senior at my university, so I have gained significant experience in the engineering and science fields and have a strong grasp of scientific writing principles. Additionally, I have also served as a teaching assistant for two semesters, which has provided me with even further teaching experience. After I finish my undergraduate degree, I hope to enter a Ph.D. program in engineering education.

Due to the wide range of students I have experience working with, I have been able to develop many different methods for working with students of differing abilities and learning styles. I've been able to develop a teaching styles that teaches the students how to identify and fix their own mistakes, instead of just pointing out what is wrong and fixing it for the student. The goal is to improve the student's writing so that they don't need my help anymore!

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions about my teaching methods, my skills, or my availability. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.

English

As part of my job at the university writing center, I have gained experience teaching students a wide range of English principles, including grammar and sentence structure. I have experience working with non-native English speakers, as well as native speakers. I have a strong command of grammar, spelling, and vocabulary, all of which are essential to teaching English effectively.

Grammar

Through my job at the university writing center, I have gained experience explaining a wide range of grammatical concepts to both native and non-native English speakers. I am able to use the proper terminology to explain these concepts, as well as provide simple and complex examples of each case. I've also been exposed, and learn to work with, complex sentence structures and identifying cases in which sentences should be modified to improve clarity, even if they are grammatically correct in their original form.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have been making PowerPoint presentations for over 10 years. I have experience with both the design elements of the program and the technical aspects. I have generated timed presentations, as well as adding notes and various other features.

Microsoft Word

I have been working with Microsoft Word for over a decade. I have knowledge of basic formatting and design features. I also have significant experience working with specialized features, such as citation organization and multiple-copy edit compilation.

Proofreading

During my time as a writing tutor, I have gained the necessary skills to identify small and large grammatical, clarity, and structure issues. I have also developed a wide range of ways to correct these issues, making decisions based upon the style of the writing and the author's personal writing manner. I am also familiar with the standard proofreading mark system.

Writing

I have been tutoring writing at the collegiate level for two years and have been exposed to a wide variety of ability levels. Through this work, I have proven I can work with non-native English speakers, as well as native speakers. I have worked on papers as simple at one-paragraph-essays to Ph.D. journal papers.
